TOKYO Men's Nike Air Max Plus TN Shoes Navy Blue UK , July 24 (Xinhua) -- The Japan Football Association (JFA) announced Thursday it had appointed former Mexico manager Javier Aguirre to manage the national team and replace Italian Alberto Zaccheroni who resigned following the Samurai Blue's dismal performance at the World Cup finals in Brazil.

Aguirre, 55, who managed RCD Espanyol in the Spanish La Liga last season, will arrive in Japan in the middle of August to assume his management duties Women's Nike Air Max Plus TN Shoes White Pink UK , JFA officials said, although the specifics of his contract remain sealed.

Nicknamed "El Vasco" (meaning "The Basque" in English), Aguirre succeeded in taking the Mexican national team to the last 16 at both World Cup finals in 2002 and 2010. Japan this year bowed out in the group stages in Brazil, securing a single point in three disappointing games.

Aguirre Men's Nike Air Max Plus TN Shoes Red White UK , whose professional playing career included 59 appearances for the Mexican national team between 1983 and 1992, will be tasked with retaining Japan's Asian Cup title next year and ensuring the Samurai Blue qualify for the 2017 Confederations Cup, to be held in Russia.

His first game at the helm will be in a friendly against reigning Copa America champions Uruguay, who placed twelfth in the last 16 at the World Cup finals in Brazil this year.

The match will be played in Sapporo on Sept. 5 and will be followed by another friendly against Venezuela in Yokohama on Sept. 9.

BUENOS AIRES, April 28 (Xinhua) -- Luis Scola, gold and bronze medal winner in Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008, respectively, will carry the flag for Argentina's delegation in the upcoming Olympic Games to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The Argentinean Olympic Committee (COA) unanimously elected the well-deserving NBA's (National Basketball Association) Toronto Raptors player who will celebrate his 36th birthday on Saturday.

Argentina's last basketball player to carry the flag in an Olympics was Emanuel Ginobili who did so in Beijing 2008 where the team went on to win the bronze medal.

The legendary "Maradona" of female field hockey, Luciana Aymar, was the flag bearer at London 2012. This was her last Olympic Games and she won the silver medal with the national team, ending her Olympic career on a high.

Also recently, windsurfer Carlos "Camau" Espinola carried the flag in two consecutive editions, Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004.

Espinola, along with Aymar, are the athletes who have won the most Olympic medals for Argentina with four each.

Other famous names in Argentina have carried the flag over the years including former tennis star Gabriela Sabatini, the best player in the country's history. She reached number three in the world ranking and won the silver medal in Seoul 1988, among other successes.

Alberto Zorrilla (swimming), Juan Carlos Zabala (athletics), Delfo Cabrera (athletics) and Carlos Moratorio (horse riding), also all won Olympic medals and carried the South American country's flag.

Zorrilla, Olympic gold-medal-winner in the 400 meters freestyle in Amsterdam 1928 (the first South American to win in that category), carried the flag in Los Angeles 1932. However, due to a disagreement of a monetary nature with Argentina's political authorities at the time, the swimmer decided to abandon the team and not compete.

Zabala, was the Olympic marathon champion in Los Angeles 1932 and he was flag bearer in the following Games in Berlin where he finished 6th in his category.

Cabrera (gold in London 1948) led out Argentina's delegation in Helsinki 1952 while Moratorio (silver in Tokyo 1964) was the flag bearer four years later in Mexico.

LONDON Men's Nike Air Max Plus TN Shoes Black Green UK , May 30 (Xinhua) -- They packed the streets and the town's main square to hail their conquering heroes Tuesday night. Huddersfield, a Yorkshire market town nestling on the slopes of England's best known mountain range, the Pennines, has joined the big boys of football.

In the next season Huddersfield Town will clash with Chelsea Nike Air Presto Flyknit Ultra High Womens Shoes Blue White UK , Tottenham Hotspur and the big two Manchester clubs as the newest arrivals in the English Premier League.

A dramatic penalty shoot-out Monday propelled them to Premiership glory for the first time in the club's history.

They have played top flight football before, but that was almost half a century ago when the First Division was the top rung in English football.

So the whole town turned blue - the team's color - Tuesday when the players went on a victory parade through their town. A club known to locals as the Terriers, has struck gold with their promotion.

Ironically Huddersfield, a town that grew out of the industrial revolution Mens Nike Air Presto High Ultra Flyknit Shoes Green UK , is the birthplace of the mainly northern sport of Rugby League, a close cousin of Rugby Union.

Founded in 1908, Huddersfield Town plays at Kirklees Stadium, a ground with a capacity of just over 24 Mens Nike Air Presto Flyknit Ultra High Lake Blue Shoes UK ,000.

They left the ground in an open-topped boss, headed along crowded streets to a packed St George's Square in the town center.

The club's glory days were in the 1920s when it became the first English club to win three successive league titles, a feat which only three other clubs have matched, though none has bettered.

In the 1950s it was managed by the legendary Bill Shankly Nike Air Presto Mens Shoes UK Black Red , who later earned his place as one of the icons of British football when he led Liverpool FC to multiple glories.

Over the past few decades the club has been on a roller coaster ride, playing in the divisions below the holy grail of football that is the Premier League.

Huddersfield's fortunes changed in 2015 when the club appointed as its head coach former USA international, German born David Wagner who became the first person ever, born outside the British Isles to manage the club.

Tens of thousands turned out to celebrate the club's success Men's Nike Air Presto UK Black Blue Shoes , with club captain Mark Hudson praising their manager as he told the crowds: "It's been epic, he's been by far the best m.
