CANBERRA Adidas Superstar 2 Rood Wit G02010 Goedkoop , Feb.4 (Xinhua)—English Premier League giants Liverpool and Everton will move to strengthen ties with Australian football following significant announcements on Wednesday.

Liverpool announced its second pre-season tour of Australia in three years, confirming fixtures in Brisbane and Adelaide in July.

Meanwhile, Everton revealed a player development agreement with A-League side Central Coast Mariners that would see young players exchanged between each club’s respective academies.

Liverpool’s return down under follows their maiden trip to Australia in 2013, where more than 95,000 people attended a one- off match against A-League side Melbourne Victory at the MCG.

This time Adidas Superstar 2 Wit160337 Goedkoop , the club will venture to Queensland and South Australia for the first time in its history, playing Brisbane Roar and Adelaide United at Suncorp Stadium and the Adelaide Oval respectively.

“Liverpool FC is one of the world’s greatest football institutions and securing the match further built on Brisbane’s reputation as a premier events destination,” Leanne Coddington of Tourism and Events Queensland told the official Liverpool website on Wednesday.

“Queensland is home to three-time A-League champions Brisbane Roar, who will have the opportunity to play against one of the world’s top clubs.”

Meanwhile, South Australia’s acting tourism minister Tom Koutsantonis said securing a fixture against Liverpool is a massive coup for the state.

“Such world-class sporting events are huge drawcards and we also anticipate a global TV audience for the game Adidas Superstar 2 Rood Wit G42581 Goedkoop , so it is the perfect platform to showcase Adelaide to the rest of the world.”

Liverpool’s announcement followed an agreement reached between fellow Merseyside club, Everton, and A-League side Central Coast Mariners.

The deal will see Everton send its most talented Under 21s and Under 18s players to Australia to gain valuable senior experience, with the Premier League side also looking to use Central Coast as an avenue to handpick Australia’s best youngsters.

Everton has a rich history of securing Australian talent, having once been home to the likes of Tim Cahill Adidas Superstar 2 Zwart Wit G60979 Goedkoop , Lucas Neill, Eddy Bosnar, David Carney and Jason Kearton.

Central Coast manager Phil Moss said in a statement that he is expecting more Australian players and, in particular Mariners players, find their way to Goodison Park.

“It opens up the door to player exchanges and resource sharing between the clubs and the coaching staff and there is hopefully the opportunity for myself and my staff to get over there and study the way they do things Adidas Superstar LGBT Pride Pack Zwart Goud BB1687 Goedkoop ,” Moss said.

Three Chinese workers are among 13 killed in a mudslide at the construction site of a hydroelectric power plant a Chinese company is building about 150 kilometers east of Quito in Ecuador, Caracas-based English-language newspaper Latin American Herald Tribune reported.

Ten Ecuadorians were also killed and about a dozen others were injured when the mudslide occurred at a tunnel of the Coca Codo Sinclair hydroelectric power plant on Saturday night.

China’s Sinohydro consortium is building the project, which will supply 36 percent of Ecuador’s electricity needs after it starts operating in February 2015.

The $2.2 billion power plant is the largest facility of its kind in the country.

BEIJING, Jan. 4 (Xinhua)—Most people may tend to rate Australia and South Korea as the favorites in Group A to qualify for the knockout stage at the Asian Cup while Oman and Kuwait have little chance to progress.

As the host Adidas Superstar Nigo Bear Leather Zwart Wit S83386 Goedkoop , the Aussies have bright prospects in front of their home fans. Although Australia has suffered three-game losing streak in 2014 World Cup, in Asian stage they still have advantages.

In attacking line, veteran Tim Cahill is always ready to score. Besides Cahill, Mark Bresciano, Robbie Kruse and Mathew Ryan are set to hit stride.

In 2011 Asian Cup Adidas Superstar Mesh Zwart Goedkoop , the Aussies lost to Japan 1-0 in the final. Now, they will try their best to claim the title on home soil.

The South Korea confederation appointed Uli Stielike as the national coach after the sacking of Hong Myung-Bo. But Stielike failed to impress in the team’s friendly matches.

Who is the ace of South Korea after Park Ji-Sung? The answer is Son Heung-Min. The 22-year-old prolific striker now has scored 5 goals from 16 appearances for Bayer Leverkusen in German Bundesliga.

As a top team in Asia, South Korea is far more than one-man team, the midfielder Ki Sung-Yong from English side Swansea will give full support for Son Heung-Min, and Kim Young Gwon who played for Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao Football Club will provide solid defence.
