WINNIPEG -- Despite the heated womens soccer rivalry between Canada and the United States that has developed since the London Olympics, coach John Herdman says its important not to make too much of their meeting next week in Winnipeg. "I know for the U.S., at times, they just look at it as another game and they come into the game nice and light and bright, whereas our girls often see it as something bigger than it is," he said Thursday from Vancouver, as the Canadian roster for the exhibition game next Thursday was announced. "Were looking at some new strategies to try and retain the passion but remove the psychological burden." For Winnipeg-born midfielder Desiree Scott, the pressure will be even greater than he suggested. It will be the first time her parents have ever seen her play live. "Its a massive thing for Desiree and weve all got a big smile on our faces," Herdman said. But he says part of the teams job will be to help her focus on doing what she does best and ignore the added pressure. This is a good chance to see how much development has taken place since Herdman started to refocus the team on the kind of game he says they need to play to be competitive at the 2015 World Cup, being held in cities across Canada, including Winnipeg. "This is where your true gap analysis comes in and you get a great sense of how far youve come along the line towards success at the World Cup," he said. "Theres a certain style and approach we want to go with. . . Its more about in this game the attacking processes of managing the ball better under the sort of pressure the U.S. put you under, as well as being a lot more clinical in those key moments, that transitional moment where we are getting chances but not converting." Canada, currently ranked seventh, lost to the No. 1-ranked Americans 1-0 in Texas in their first meeting this year and hasnt managed to beat the Americans since 2001. Then there was the bitter semi-final loss to the Americans at the 2012 Olympics, where a controversial call by a referee left Canadian fans, and players, outraged. One player from that heartbreaker will be returning for this match. Striker Melissa Tancredi is back after taking a couple of years off to return to school. "Shes close to returning back to professional football in the NWSL and to be back full-time with Canada so shell come into this squad a little bit behind the eight-ball but Melissas presence is always felt." He says shes not going to be able to play 90 minutes after being off for two years, but shes a tough competitor with the kind of spirit and grit that can rub off on young players. One player Herdman would have liked still hasnt recovered enough from an ACL injury to play, natural left-footer Lauren Sesselmann, and hes also missing those who play for Swedish teams because of the travel time and a short turnaround. It provides a chance for Herdman to introduce some young players such as 16-year-old Jessie Fleming and 17-year-old Sura Yekka. Adidas Stan Smith Deals . -- A.J.

The Brazilian-born strikers brace drew him level with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo as the leagues leading scorers with 17 goals apiece through 16 rounds. "The important thing is to help the team win, not the goals," Diego Costa said. After a first half dominated by defence, Atletico pressed Valencia into its area and Diego Costa did the rest.It took some courage for British novice Tom Breese to leave his hometown and knock on the door of a Canadian gym with the expectation of training alongside a UFC legend. Montreal is a cold and unforgiving environment, the perfect location for the Tristar gym that bred pound-for-pound great Georges St-Pierre and current world title contender Rory MacDonald.When Birminghams Breese, just 21-years-old with a humble 6-0 record at the time, turned up with a one-way ticket he was welcomed - for as long as he lasted. Nearly four years later, he has been on the pay-roll and is now one of Tristars biggest hopes. I ended up going out to Montreal just for a few weeks but I was asked to stay on for a Georges St-Pierre training camp for one of his UFC title fights. Tom Breese Originally, I was training under Marc Goddard who is a UFC referee now, Breese exclusively told Sky Sports. He wanted me to go out to Canada and he knew the coaches, so I snapped up the opportunity.I ended up going out to Montreal just for a few weeks but I was asked to stay on for a Georges St-Pierre training camp for one of his UFC title fights. That was a great opportunity and I learned so much from that experience.Its great to see how he trained, especially when he was fighting. Hes in the gym a lot, he teaches every Monday, and hes a big help. Georges St-Pierre is the greatest welterweight ever Georges coaches me and the other guys. I was training with him this week. We give each other advice and we help each other grow.Breese is now a 10-0 welterweight with three UFC victories - perhaps more impressive is that the Tristar coaching staff have kept hold of the Birmingham boy. They know a decent welterweight when they see one, having overseen St-Pierres five-year world title reign.His next fight against Sean Strickland is on the undercard to fellow Brit Michael Bispings world title shot. For Breese, he has come full circle since going to his first classes to emulatee Bisping.dddddddddddd Breese in action in his most recent fight against Keita Nakamura Bisping to live by the sword Exclusive interview with British world title challenger I started at 16, MMA wasnt too big then. Michael Bisping was just starting so I grew up seeing him. I fell in love with MMA and Ive dedicated my life to it. Since the first day I went to the gym I took it seriously and wanted to be a champion.I saw that the 170lbs weight class was stacked so I wanted to come over to Canada and see what the level is like.Im outside of the bubble which is good because I stay focused and humble. Im prepared to be the best fighter I can be. Id like to be a champion whether its [Britains] first, or just a champion in general. Im on my own journey. But, as I say, I do miss home at times. Breese tangles with last opponent Keita Nakamura But will that journey ever bring Breese back to these shores permanently?Canada is still not home in terms of outside the gym with friends and family, he said.Its very different to home but the people are nice - its half-English and half-French. Ive tried to learn French and I can understand some of it, but my Brummie accent makes it too hard to pronounce the words!
