BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil -- Hope Solo wasnt bothered by the chanting. Andre Johnson Texans Jersey .The veteran USA goalie was teased by fans chanting Zika, Zika at her as the U.S. womens soccer team defeated New Zealand in its Olympic debut on Wednesday.The crowd of nearly 10,000 fans at the 60,000-capacity Mineirao Stadium jeered the goalkeeper with references to the virus that has scared many athletes ahead of the Rio Games.Im glad the fans had fun, Solo said. And if they had fun at my expense, more power to them.Solo upset some Brazilians before coming to the Olympics by tweeting a photo of herself wearing a hat with mosquito netting. She also posted a photo of dozens of packs of mosquito repellent that she was packing for her trip to Brazil.She made amends a few days before the Games, blaming the American media for spreading fear about Zika and other problems ahead of the Rio Games. She said the media was being really tough on people of Brazil.The veteran goalkeeper said she didnt realize during the game that the fans were chanting Zika, and thought they were only yelling a common slur that local clubs sometimes use against goalkeepers at goal kicks.Some of the fans were indeed yelling the slur early in the game, but later the majority of the crowd started with the Zika chant, which was also repeated after the final whistle.Thats something hopefully they will put behind them and realize that Hope has apologized to the Brazilian people, U.S. coach Jill Ellis said of the fans. Sometimes mistakes are made. We are used to getting booed in other countries, so that part of it is not foreign. I hope the Brazilian people appreciate what we are trying to do with the ball and move past that. DeAndre Hopkins Jersey . Aduriz headed home Markel Susaetas cross in the sixth minute to open the scoring at San Mames Stadium. He bettered that with a long-range blast that went in off the goal frame in the 18th, and converted a penalty in the 72nd after Diego Mainz was sent off for fouling Aduriz with only the goalkeeper to beat. Arian Foster Texans Jersey . Q: Team Canada announces their Olympic roster three weeks from today. Who is general manager Steve Yzerman watching? LeBrun: Over the last 48 hours, hes taken in the home-and-home between the Dallas Stars and Colorado Avalanche with Jamie Benn and Matt Duchene being the obvious targets. http:///...wl-jersey-authentic/ . -- Ken Appleby made 32 saves for his first shutout of the season to lead the Oshawa Generals to a 2-0 win over the Belleville Bulls on Wednesday in Ontario Hockey League action. DAVIE, Fla. -- Four-time Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster is a starter again.Foster was listed with the first unit on the Miami Dolphins depth chart Monday and will start their opener Sunday at Seattle less than 11 months after tearing his Achilles tendon while with the Houston Texans.Signed by Miami in July, Foster rushed for only 5 yards on seven carries in the preseason, but beat out Jay Ajayi for the starting job.A little bit of the reason is experience, coach Adam Gase said. He had a really good camp. He did everything we asked him to do as far as what we wanted to see in the preseason, and he has been very consistent in his knowledge of the offense in the short period of time that he was here. It was impressive to watch him and how quickly he picked it up.Also winning starting jobs were two rookies, first-round pick Laremy Tunsil at left guard and second-round pick Xavien Howard at cornerback. Veteran newcomer Jermon Bushrod will start at right guard.Foster holds the Texans franchhise record with 6,472 yards rushing, but injuries have limited him to 25 games in the past three years. Will Fuller V Texans Jersey. He played in just four games last season, averaging 2.6 yards per carry.Three starters missed practice: center Mike Pouncey (hip), receiver DeVante Parker (hamstring) and linebacker Jelani Jenkins (knee). Jenkins is the most likely to be available Sunday, while Pounceys status remains week to week, Gase said.The Dolphins were surprised receiver Justin Hunter was available on the waiver wire, Gase added. Miami claimed him as a sixth receiver Sunday.I didnt think I was going to come here, but Im happy to be here now, said Hunter, a second-round draft pick by Tennessee in 2013. Its a whole group of guys, new team, new organization. They believe in me enough to bring me here.
