OLIVA, Spain -- The latest rebuilding project of the Canadian mens soccer team is taking place in a quiet corner of southeast Spain. Joao Mario Jersey . Its here, among the acres of orange groves and palm trees, that new head coach Benito Floro is beginning to reshape a program left in tatters following a disastrous exit from 2014 World Cup qualifying. From teenagers to veterans, the 61-year-old Spaniard has been putting a group of more than 30 players through the paces for the last week in this town an hour south of Valencia. Floro will get a glimpse of what he has to work with in his first game as national team coach on Sunday in a friendly against Mauritania. "The most important thing at this moment is to increase the confidence of the team," Floro said after the team trained on Saturday. "For us the game is training but its more serious because its important to win the game. At the moment its important to win the game but while were doing what weve been working on all week." Canada hasnt tasted victory in almost a year and has taken its lumps during that time as the program begins its long preparations for 2018 World Cup qualifying. Its been a busy camp with most days featuring two training sessions, video work, meetings and plenty of team bonding. Nametags might have been a good idea, with many players unfamiliar with each other prior to this camp. "Its been an eye-opener for me because a lot of the young boys that are here, Ive never seen them play," said 29-year-old forward Iain Hume, who picked up a minor injury and will return to his club team in England on Sunday. "To see some 17- and 18-year-old boys, its a different level than what weve had over the last ten years." The focus is on getting players on the same page so that whenever someone is brought into the squad, they will know the new coachs style. Canada is staying in a hotel that features a golf course, beach and vacation apartments but little else. "Its kind of like a Canadian national team pre-season," said 35-year-old midfielder Dwayne De Rosario, who is back with the squad after being omitted from the team during this past summers Gold Cup tournament. "(Floros) really getting his message across the way he wants us to play, the way he wants us to attack and defend, which is vital for the development of our national team moving forward. "The earlier we can all understand the way he wants us to play, the clearer the picture will be going forward." Floro, who filled the vacancy left by Stephen Hart as coach earlier this summer, will also get a second look at his players when Canada meets Mauritania for a second time on Tuesday. An impoverished West African country on the edge of the Sahara, Mauritania is currently ranked at 151 compared to Canadas 91. But Mauritania, a country where the current president came to power in a military coup in 2008, is steadily improving, having jumped up 21 places in last months FIFA rankings. "We are going to review two (Mauritania) matches to prepare the formation for our players," said Floro, whose third language is English, behind Spanish and French. "The other information around (Mauritania) is its a pretty good team with a lot of speed and good intentions." Clearly out to impress the new coach, there were a number of hard tackles thrown around in Saturdays training, with a few Canadian players needing some ice afterwards. The tempo was high, with most of the session taken up with scrimmage games that mixed in veterans and younger players. "One thing I know weve lacked in the past is meeting some of the young, up-and-coming talents," said De Rosario. "This is the first camp Ive been to where weve had a mixture of senior players and a mixture of young kids that is going to be the future national team players." Ricardo Pereira Jersey .com) - DAngelo Harrison posted 21 points to guide No. Manuel Fernandes Portugal Jersey . The Toronto Blue Jays star won his second consecutive Hank Aaron Award as the most outstanding offensive performer in the AL on Monday after votes by fans and a panel of Hall of Famers were tallied. http://www.soccerportugalproshop.com/c-26-cedric-portugal-jersey.aspx . Messis 75th-minute goal answered some of the criticism the clubs all-time leading scorer had received for his lacklustre performances in the teams recent losses in the league, Champions League and Copa del Rey final. WINNIPEG -- Ondrej Pavelec of the Winnipeg Jets isnt on ESPNs list of top 25 NHL goaltenders and, given his numbers last season, his coach isnt surprised. "Players get ranked a lot of times according to numbers and I think its probably fair," Claude Noel said Monday at training camp. Pavelec, a workhorse who played in a league-high 44 games last season, ranked 10th over all in wins with 21. But his save percentage of .905 ranked 51st in the NHL and his 20 losses were the second worst. His goals-against average of 2.80 ranked him 52nd overall and he allowed a league high 119 goals. Noel says the Jets have to improve in many areas this season, including goaltending. But he still says he believes they have goaltenders who can get them to the playoffs. "Im confident in our goaltending and I think our goaltending can help us get in the playoffs," said Noel. "Were going to have to play a good team game and our goalies are going to have to do their part. "Thats part of the solution. Your players have to check better. You have to do some things, we have to do some things better from the previous two years to get in the playoffs and goaltending also going to have to pick up a little bit more." The Jets showed their confidence in Pavelec last season, when they signed the Czech native to a new five-year, $19.5-million deal. His numbers arent just a reflection of Pavelecs efforts in goal. In fact, he got a lot of credit from his coach and teammates last season for keeping the Jets in games when not much else was working. There were also times when he could have used a little more help in front of the net. He was second only to Buffalos Ryan Miller in the number of shots faced at 1,251. Manuel Fernandes Jersey. Training camp is a time when a lot of players get ice time who likely wont see much, if any, action with the Jets this season. That has included goaltenders. But that should start to change Tuesday night when the Edmonton Oilers visit, as the focus in goal at last turns to Pavelec and perhaps backup Al Montoya as well. "The important thing for us is to get the two goalies that we have prepared to play and thats going to be the biggest thing moving forward here with these next exhibition games," said Noel, although he refused to go into more detail. "Ive been told Im going to play, I dont know exactly what the plan is, but Im excited to get to the game and get things going," said Pavelec. The franchise has made the playoffs exactly once since it started in Atlanta. After a promising start last season that made them look like a safe bet, the Jets crumbled down the stretch. This season, their third in Winnipeg, the pressure to qualify has increased and the players say they know what they must do. Pavelec is no exception. He says its time to start making good on expectations and he says the team has added players and gotten better in the off-season. They will also have less travelling to do now that theyre in a division composed largely of Central time-zone teams, although those teams look a lot tougher for the most part than their old Southeast rivals. "You know first year, we just moved from Atlanta, last year was the lockout, this year . . . its time to make it. I think we have the team to make it," said the goaltender. "We just have to stop talking about it and just make it." 17:37ET 16-09-13 Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap NFL T-shirts Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Discount NFL Jerseys ' ' '
