|TORONTO -- There is only so much the Canadian team can do to prepare for its first opponent at the Under-20 Womens World Cup. Mike Bibby Jersey . Like it is for many youth teams around the world, in-game video of the Ghana squad is rather limited. From what the Canadians have been able to glean from the footage theyve seen, theyre expecting a side with plenty of speed and a unique style in Tuesdays opener at BMO Field. "Ghana is a very fast, physical team," said midfielder Jessie Fleming. "They have very technical forwards. Theyre definitely going to be difficult to play (against). Theyre unpredictable at times. "So its just a matter of sticking to our game plan and doing what we can to match that." The Ghana team has trained in the Ontario capital ahead of the tournament. That has allowed the Canadians to gather some more information on their first Group A opponent. "Weve been a bit fortunate," said Canadian coach Andrew Olivieri. "Theyve been here in Toronto so weve had a couple of people that have been able to see them. Thats certainly part of the culture of our program is being prepared for our opponents and seeing them and basically analyzing them is crucial to the way we work." Canada will play Finland in another Group A game Friday in Toronto before heading to Montreal for an Aug. 12 game against North Korea. Group B includes the U.S., Germany, China and Brazil. Group C is made up of England, Mexico, Nigeria and South Korea while Group D consists of Costa Rica, France, New Zealand and Paraguay. The tournament runs through Aug. 24 with Edmonton and Moncton as the other host cities. The defending champion Americans are a tournament favourite along with Germany and North Korea. The top two teams from each pool advance to the quarter-finals. Moncton and Montreal will host the semifinals and Montreal will stage the final and third-place match. The Canadian side boasts six players who have played with the national senior team. They include Fleming, centre backs Kadeisha Buchanan and Rebecca Quinn, fullback Sura Yekka, midfielder Ashley Lawrence and forward Nichelle Prince. That experience will be needed for a side that Olivieri said is the youngest team that Canada has fielded since the inaugural edition of the tournament in 2002. Defender Kinley McNicoll will serve as captain and Kailen Sheridan is the No. 1 goalie. Canada is coming off a disappointing 1-2-0 performance in the 2012 event while Ghana dropped all three of its matches. Neither side advanced out of the group stage. "We have been preparing very well for the tournament," Ghana vice-captain Alice Danso said on the FIFA website. "We are getting all the support we need and I am sure that when the competition starts in Canada, we will be ready." Canada should get a boost from what is expected to be a lively crowd at the lakefront stadium, which is also the home field for Toronto FC of Major League Soccer. Chandler Parsons Jersey . Cox started the season with San Francisco, but was released by the team on Nov. 12 before being signed by Seattle, where he appeared in two games and tallied three tackles before being released on Dec. Allen Iverson Jersey . Burris threw for 247 yards in one half of a game -- on pace for a nearly 500-yard outing -- as the Redblacks downed the woeful Montreal Alouettes 26-10 in CFL pre-season play Friday night at Percival Molson Stadium. http://www.thegrizzliesofficial.com/Authentic-Zach-Randolph-Grizzlies-Jersey/ . -- DeMarcus Cousins had 29 points, nine rebounds and six steals to lead the Sacramento Kings to their third straight preseason win, a 107-90 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Thursday night. SAN DIEGO -- A front-office shakeup had no impact on the San Diego Padres performance. After the team announced general manager Josh Byrnes was fired minutes before the first pitch with the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday, the Padres put up another punchless performance in a 2-1 loss against Hyun-Jin Ryu. Although Padres President and CEO Mike Dee said there were a number of factors that figured into the firing, Padres Executive Chairman Ron Fowler made it clear that the ownership group was not happy with the product on the field. "When you invest 50 per cent more money over the last two years, in terms of payroll, you expect better performance," Fowler said. "We gave baseball ops a clean slate as far as who did they want, what did they want to do. For my perspective, we are standing here as a consequence of that not working." Byrnes off-season moves included free agent signings of starting pitcher Josh Johnson, who has yet to pitch for San Diego since straining his right forearm in spring training, reliever Joaquin Benoit and outfielder Seth Smith. "We were led to believe, and I think its fair to say we believed, based upon the investment that we made, the additions we made in the off-season, the addition of certain players during the off-season, that would put us over the top," Dee said. "We felt confident that we would be in a position to compete for post-season baseball." Dee added that manager Bud Black has been told that his job is safe at least through the end of the season. Until the club hires a new general manager, senior vice-president for baseball operations Omar Minaya and assistant general managers A.J. Hinch and Fred Uhlman, Jr. will assume the GM duties. Minaya was the general manager of the New York Mets from 2005-10. Byrnes was hired by the Padres as their senior vice-president for baseball operations in December 2010 after he was let go as general manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks, where he was in the middle of an eight-year deal. He was promoted 10 months later to GM and was given a five-year contract. Under Byrnes, the Padres payroll increased nearly $400 million to $89,881,696 on opening this season -- 23rd overall -- but the team has made little progress. Memphis Grizzlies Jerseys. After finishing with 76-86 records in his first two seasons, the Padres are 32-43 and 12 1/2 games back in the NL West during an injury-plagued season. Byrnes was touted by the Padres as excelling at scouting and player development, but his biggest moves came through trades. He sent first base prospect Anthony Rizzo to the Cubs for top-line starter Andrew Cashner, and he dealt starting pitcher Mat Latos for infielder Yasmani Grandal, catcher Yonder Alonso, and right-handers Edinson Volquez and Brad Boxberger. Byrnes also acquired starter Tyson Ross, closer Huston Street, outfielder Carlos Quentin and right-hander Ian Kennedy. Ryu (9-3) had few problems against the light-hitting Padres, as he won for the sixth time in seven starts since missing more than three weeks with shoulder inflammation. The left-handed Ryu gave up one runs and four hits in six innings, and he did not allow San Diego to get its first hit until the fourth inning. The Dodgers, winners of 10 of 14, took two of three games in the series and have either won or split their last 11 series in San Diego. The last time they lost a series in San Diego was a three-game sweep in September 2010. Adrian Gonzalez and Dee Gordon drove in runs against Eric Stults (2-10). J.P. Howell pitched 1 1-3 perfect innings and Brian Wilson got two outs before Kenley Jansen finished off the four-hitter by pitching the ninth for his 22nd save in 25 chances. NOTES: Dodgers LF Matt Kemp extended his hitting streak to 10 games, while Ramirez increased his to nine games. ... San Diego has scored 23 runs in Stults 16 starts. ... Padres 3B Chase Headley (back) missed his fourth straight game. ...
