European nations are battling for qualification for Euro 2020, with some nations such as Belgium and Italy able to secure their place in the tournament this international break. Over in Asia, qualification for the Qatar 2022 World Cup is in full swing, while the rest of the world either has friendly matches or Nations League matches. Here are some things to look out for this October 2019 international break.

South Korea and North Korea play against each other quite regularly, and actually faced each other four times during the qualifying campaign for the 2010 World Cup. But for the first time in almost 30 years, South Korea will play North Korea in Pyongyang this October 15th. That the match is being played in North Korea shows how for the two Koreas have come in the past two years; that there won’t be any South Korean supporters in the Kim Il Sung stadium shows how much further they still have to go.

Both sides have won all their qualifying games so far. For Son Heung-min and the rest of South Korea’s relatively young squad, they’ll have to forget about the historic significance of the occasion and focus on the match if they want to come away from Pyongyang with all three points. South Korean head coach Paulo Bento said of the trip to Pyongyang “I know how South Korean people feel about this match, but the most important thing is for us to win.”

The Brazilian national team are trying to have their Brigadeiro and eat it. For the Brazilian FA, the international break provides the perfect opportunity to top up their coffers, so Neymar and co. are heading to Singapore for a pair of exhibition matches. But rather than playing Singapore, they’ll be facing Senegal and Nigeria. With so few teams in CONMEBOL, and with the rest of the world playing competitive games, it makes sense for Brazil to use this break as an opportunity to play strong opponents from Africa, but while the facilities in Singapore are first class and the island offers a chance to maximize the commercial aspects of the games, it must be a bit disappointing for fans of Senegal and Nigeria that these games aren’t happening in Lagos or Dakar.

Gareth Bale’s late goal for Wales against Azerbaijan means that should they win their game in hand, there would be just one point separating four teams in Group E of Euro 2020 qualifying. Wales travel to second-placed Slovakia before playing group leaders Croatia at home this international break. Wales will be hoping Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey can pass a late fitness test to play his first international game in almost a year. Ryan Giggs has also controversially selected Derby County’s Tom Lawrence who is due in court on drink driving charges just after the Croatia match.

With the regular season coming to an end, the men’s soccer team hopes to kick it into high gear and improve their 2-7-1 record as they transition into conference play.

Non-conference season for men’s soccer proved to be a struggle, only winning two of the ten games played.

The first half of their schedule consisted of nine away matches, including a tough loss at the nationally ranked University of Louisville.

“We’ve played an incredibly difficult schedule,” said head coach David Costa. “It has been tough playing most of our matches while living in hotels, but it’s the hand we were dealt and I believe we did the best we could.”

The 2019 season marks the Bruins’ second year in the Southern Conference and Costa’s first as head coach of the men’s team.

Albania vs Turkey Live

Albania vs Turkey Live: Albania vs Turkey Live Stream Turkey vs Albania predictions ahead of this clash in Euro 2020 qualifying. Will Turkey boost their chances of making the Euros with a victory over Albania this week. Turkey had managed the admirable feat of defeating France, and that too while keeping a clean sheet. But later, they lost against Iceland, which marginally dented their chances to top the group. They are still in contention for it though, and in that regards this home tie against the comparatively weaker Albanian squad should result in a win.

The second international break of the season is upon us and for Everton fans it’s both good and bad. On one hand we can forget how miserable we are with our team, and can actually go ahead and enjoy lives outside of football. On the other hand, it gives us even more time to stew on how miserable we are with our team.
Turkey defeated Moldova with a 4-0 win in Group H of the EURO 2020 qualifiers on Sept. 10.Turkey opened the scoring at Zimbru Stadium in Kishinev, when Everton striker Cenk Tosun managed to get past the keeper with a chip and scored easily in the 37th minute.

Fenerbahce’s Deniz Turuç gave Turkey an insurance goal with a beautiful long-distance free-kick in the 57th minute.Cenk Tosun added another in the 79th minute with a header after Hakan Çalhanoğlu’s volley came back from the crossbar.Lille’ player Yusuf Yazıcı had the last goal of the match with a classy finish in the 88th minute to seal the 4-0 victory.This goal was Yusuf’s first goal for Turkey in his career.

In other Group H matches, France defeated Andorra 3-0 at Stade de France while Iceland lost to Albania 4-2 at Elbasan Arena in an away game.Turkey increased its points total to 15 and sits atop the standings. With its second loss in Group H, Iceland slipped to the third spot with 12 points in six matches.Late Sunday night in Washington, the White House announced it was pulling U.S. troops out of northeast Syria to clear the way for a Turkish invasion. The Kurds there who led the fight on the ground that defeated the so-called Islamic State had seen President Donald Trump’s betrayal coming. But still they hoped it could be avoided.

“Don’t let the Turks disrupt my wedding,” our translator texted in September prior to our arrival in the region. For more than a year, we have been visiting almost monthly to interview captured ISIS cadres held by the Kurdish and Arab troops of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) as part of a project for the International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism. In September, we saw the Turkish threat to invade at any moment was held off by tense U.S. negotiations in which the SDF made considerable concessions, allowing Turkey to patrol jointly a large swath of territory while agreeing to remove checkpoints and military positions farther back from the Turkish border.

“They should put their patrols inside Turkish territory, and not enter Syria,” SDF leaders told us at the time, but they reluctantly acquiesced to U.S. demands.Many current and former White House advisers counseled against the kind of announcement made Sunday night. Defense Secretary James Mattis resigned last year over Trump’s threat to remove the few thousand U.S. troops in Syria, who not only served as advisers in the fight against ISIS, but as deterrence against Turkish operations east of the Euphrates River.

In a particularly bitter post on Twitter, Bret McGurk, who served as the special U.S. presidential envoy for the fight against ISIS from 2015 to 2018, wrote, “Donald Trump is not a Commander-in-Chief. He makes impulsive decisions with no knowledge or deliberation. He sends military personnel into harm’s way with no backing. He blusters and then leaves our allies exposed when adversaries call his bluff or he confronts a hard phone call.”The U.S. military learned about the withdrawal plan only after Trump decided on it following his Sunday phone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. It has pulled out of two small observation posts in the security-mechanism zone near the Syria-Turkey border so far. But no further withdrawals are imminent, according to a knowledgeable source. The military, remembering Trump’s December order out of Syria and subsequent reversal, is waiting to learn if Trump will follow through with withdrawal this time.

Trump responded to criticism this time with some extraordinary tweets. He made an explicit threat to Turkey if, as many anticipate, the Kurdish fighters now guarding thousands of ISIS prisoners redeploy to the Turkish front and there are massive escapes. “As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate,” Trump wrote, “if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!).”

There was no expression of concern for the Kurds.

A recently departed senior Pentagon official considered the pullout a “blatant betrayal” of the United States’ Kurdish partners that gives “carte blanche to Erdogan” for a widely forecast bloodletting. “It’s going to be a massacre, that’s clear,” the ex-official told The Daily Beast. “It’s fundamentally wrong. They destroyed the caliphate.”

But the Kurds are not entirely defenseless. Military leaders of the dominant group, known as the YPG or People’s Protection Units (and their female YPJ partners), already were in overdrive in September, preparing for what they had long anticipated—a possible betrayal by their closest ally, the United States.

Dodgers vs Nationals

Dodgers vs Nationals : Dodgers vs Nationals Live Stream Online Free The NLDS returns to SunTrust Park on Wednesday for a pivotal winner take all Game 5 of the NLDS between the Atlanta Braves and the St. Louis Cardinals. The Braves came into the series boasting one of the league’s best offenses but it has largely been held in check by St. Louis pitching. The good news is, Atlanta’s pitching staff has pretty much matched the Cardinals pitch for pitch with great performances by Mike Foltynewicz and Mike Soroka in Games 2 & 3.

While Ronald Acuña Jr, Dansby Swanson and Ozzie Albies have done their part, Atlanta’s middle of the order has been largely silent. Freddie Freeman, Josh Donaldson and Nick Markakis have combined to go 7-for-48 with just three extra-base hits over the first four games of the series. Manager Brian Snitker said on Tuesday that he is contemplating a lineup change with Adam Duvall potentially moving into the starting lineup and likely replacing Matt Joyce who is 1-for-9 in the series.

The move makes sense on a lot of levels and would likely break up the string of three straight left-handed hitters with Markakis, Joyce and Brian McCann in the first four games of the series.More Braves/Cardinals news

If you want to make it into SunTrust Park to see Game 5, the team is selling standing-room-only tickets.Cardinals manager Mike Shildt told the media on Tuesday that he expects Adam Wainwright to be available out of the bullpen in Game 5 against the Braves on Wednesday.

When the Braves take the field on Wednesday, they will be looking to put an end to a long postseason drought.The Athletic’s Eno Sarris takes a closer look at Ozzie Albies and Yadier Molina and how the trend of swinging at the first pitch has increased over the last several seasons.

The Philadelphia Phillies are expected to announce soon whether or not Gabe Kapler will return as the team’s manager in 2020. Philadelphia’s season ended nine days ago and while several other teams have already moved on from their manager, managing partner John Middleton has been meeting with current players and gathering intel before making a final decision. You read that right, this is clearly ownership’s call and the Phillies’ front office appears to not be involved in the decision.

The Boston Red Sox announced on Tuesday that pitching coach Dana LeVangie will not return to the team next season. Additionally, Brian Bannister will no longer serve as assistant pitching coach but will continueon as vice president of pitching development.

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf confirmed in a television interview on Tuesday that MLB commissioner Rob Manfred recently warned city officials that the A’s could move to Las Vegas if the city doesn’t drop its lawsuit to stop Alameda County from selling its share of the Coliseum to the team. Currently, Oakland and Alameda County share ownership of the Coliseum and the city wants the county to sell its half of the stadium to the city rather than the A’s. One problem though, reports suggest that the city can’t match the $85 million offer made by the team for the stadium.

Braves vs Cardinals

Braves vs Cardinals : Braves vs Cardinals Live Stream Online Free The NLDS returns to SunTrust Park on Wednesday for a pivotal winner take all Game 5 of the NLDS between the Atlanta Braves and the St. Louis Cardinals. The Braves came into the series boasting one of the league’s best offenses but it has largely been held in check by St. Louis pitching. The good news is, Atlanta’s pitching staff has pretty much matched the Cardinals pitch for pitch with great performances by Mike Foltynewicz and Mike Soroka in Games 2 & 3.

While Ronald Acuña Jr, Dansby Swanson and Ozzie Albies have done their part, Atlanta’s middle of the order has been largely silent. Freddie Freeman, Josh Donaldson and Nick Markakis have combined to go 7-for-48 with just three extra-base hits over the first four games of the series. Manager Brian Snitker said on Tuesday that he is contemplating a lineup change with Adam Duvall potentially moving into the starting lineup and likely replacing Matt Joyce who is 1-for-9 in the series.

The move makes sense on a lot of levels and would likely break up the string of three straight left-handed hitters with Markakis, Joyce and Brian McCann in the first four games of the series.More Braves/Cardinals news
