LONDON -- Underwhelming up front and uneasy at the back -- but England still signed off with a victory at Wembley Stadium before the World Cup. Nike Roshe One Flyknit Sneakers . Only one forward contributed a goal in the 3-0 victory over Peru on Friday, with Daniel Sturridges deft strike in the first half breaking the dreary deadlock. But coach Roy Hodgson was still encouraged that his players managed to successfully exploit Perus inability to defend set pieces to extend their lead in the second half. From two corners in a five-minute span, Gary Cahill and Phil Jagielka both netted in Englands first friendly since the 23-man World Cup squad was named. "It didnt look as if it would be too comfortable in the first half, but as soon as Daniel scored that wonderful goal the game wasnt in doubt," Hodgson said. "To do it in front of 85,000 people was a great send-off, the atmosphere was a vote of confidence. "When you play against teams with 10 men behind the ball you have to be patient but I had no doubt we would win." England heads over the weekend to Miami to play friendlies against Ecuador and Honduras before flying onto Brazil. In the Florida sun, it will be Wayne Rooney in particular with a lot to prove after the striker failed to come close to scoring in north London. "We think we know where he is, how his fitness is being maintained or progressing," Hodgson said. "His attitude and commitment are first-class, even in a game of this nature. He has two more weeks to keep that going." Although England was in control in the first half, there were anxious moments due to sloppiness that provided openings for the ineffective Peruvians, who didnt qualify for Brazil. When Rooney conceded possession early on, Jean Deza was able to unleash a dipping shot that Joe Hart saved, one of several openings for the winger on his debut. And in the second half, defender Glen Johnson gave the ball away too easily inside his own half, allowing Andre Carrillo to break forward and release Deza to shoot. Peru goalkeeper Raul Fernandez at first had little to do, with the hosts taking until the 19th minute to come close to finding the target, with Sturridge dragging a shot wide. The match was so dreary that England fans made paper airplanes out of the cardboard used for a pre-match mosaic. But Sturridge produced a goal out of nowhere with Englands meaningful effort in the 32nd. A throw-in from Glen Johnson reached his Liverpool teammate, who placed the ball high into the net beyond Fernandez. That aside, throughout the first half Fernandez didnt have a save to make, while Hart was called into action just before the break, coming off his line to deny Luis Ramirez with his left boot. This wasnt the rousing send-off England fans had hoped for, with the creativity missing and anxious moments. But the pair of goals from defenders added gloss to the win. Cahill first met Jagielkas corner in the crowded penalty area, planting a header into the net in the 65th. Then Fernandez raced off the line to catch Leighton Baines corner but dropped the ball, which fell onto Cahills head and dropped for Jagielka to dispatch into the net. The victory was secure, but it will be far tougher on June 14 for the World Cup opener against Italy. "There wasnt the match sharpness as much as we would have liked," Sturridge said. "But it was great to be out there and we are happy with the result." Nike Roshe One Br . You can watch the game on TSN at 7pm et/4pm pt and listen to the game on TSN Radio 690 in Montreal. After starting the month of November on an 0-3-1 slide, the Canadiens have recorded wins in three of their last five outings (3-1-1). Nike Roshe One Slip .B. -- Canadian pairs skaters Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford went from elated to frustrated in the span of a few minutes. http://www.rosheonedam.net/nike-roshe-one-flyknit/nike-roshe-flyknit-dam.html . - Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Jason Babin is now a free agent.TORONTO - Grant Fuhr partied like a rock star, or a Stanley Cup-winning NHL superstar during the prime of his career.His drug use led to a suspension and plenty of unwanted attention. Yet almost 30 years later the former Edmonton Oilers goaltender has no regrets and expressed that sentiment in his new book, Grant Fuhr: The Story of a Hockey Legend.Im 100 per cent comfortable with my life now, Fuhr told The Canadian Press on Thursday. Thats probably one of the best things about it is to have to sit back and go through it, you understand if youre comfortable with life or not.And Im OK with everything thats happened. Yeah, some of its bad, but at the same time it makes you a better person.The Spruce Grove, Alta., native wrote this book along with former Calgary neighbour Bruce Dowbiggin. Its structured as a series of 10 key games from the Hall of Famers career, with Dowbiggin essentially narrating and Fuhr dropping in his reflections now and then.Along with the on-ice success, which there was plenty of, the book touches on Fuhrs substance abuse and racial tensions that arose when he started playing in the United States. Dowbiggin didnt shy away from mentioning Fuhrs cocaine use, and thats fine with the 52-year-old who wants readers to realize life is about making mistakes and still being successful.You dont have to be perfect, Fuhr said. I would look great in a halo, but its never going to happen.The book unearthed a quote from Wayne Gretzky: To be able to play at the level he played at for all those years (while on drugs) is a surprise.Looking back on it, Fuhr doesnt believe drugs hurt his performance.The hardest part of goaltending is to stay focused, Fuhr said. So the fact that you get a mental break away from the game is almost refreshing.For me at that time, the most comfortable place to be was on the ice. Thats where I was happiest. It probably made me a little more focused than most.The summer of 1986 is one of the turning points in Fuhrs life. It followed Steve Smiths own goal against the Flames but of more importance to Fuhr, thats also when he lost his father, making for a terrible off-season.Hockey and life had changed, but at the same time I found a way to get away from it, Fuhr said. Probably not the right way, but at the same time it made life (bearable).I was never a good student but I learned everything through life. So had I did it a different way, could things have turned out a little different? Yeah they probably couldve. But at the same time I wouldnt have the same life experiences.Fuhr said there was nothing in the book that was difficult to re-live. Now, 23-plus years after his suspension, 21 years after being refused admission into a Buffalo-area country club because of his race and 11 years being inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, he has a better grasp on life and his career accomplishments.While Fuhr doesnt see race as something people should be defined by, he also better understands tthe historical significance he had on the NHL. Nike Roshe One Herr. When youre playing you never really think of it, youre just playing and enjoying the game and you never really have to worry or think about it, whereas now I get a chance to look back at it, Fuhr said. You can see different kids at different times and such, and you realize that it has more prevalence now than it ever did.Fuhr also may have had an impact on the way the league and Players Association deal with drug use. In 1990, then-president John Ziegler suspended Fuhr for a full season for conduct dishonourable and against the welfare of the league.In the book, Fuhr writes, The biggest misconception about that period of time is that the substance problem was still ongoing but by the time it finally hit the paper it had been two years over and long stopped, over and done.His suspension was eventually reduced, but nowadays the league handles similar situations with more of an eye toward helping players. Fuhr said that was the best part of his punishment in retrospect, that current players dont have to deal with the same heavy hand.Its like night and day now because the NHL now will help players, where when I got suspended it was about punishment, Fuhr said. It wasnt about rehabilitating players or helping them get better in life, it was about punishing them. I think the NHL has gone leaps and bounds in getting better at that where theyve got programs in place now and they actually will help players, and theyll help players before they get themselves in trouble.Fuhr got himself in and out of trouble and along the way managed to win 403 career regular-season games for the Oilers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Buffalo Sabres, Los Angeles Kings, St. Louis Blues and Flames. He was in net for four Cups and has five championship rings because he was part of the 1989-90 Oilers team that Bill Ranford led to the title.As he signed books that filled the table in front of him, Fuhr wore his 1988 Cup ring on his right hand. He rotates them but has one on all the time.The only one that stays is the Hall of Fame ring and I actually wear it on a chain around my neck, Fuhr said. I think its the pinnacle of what you accomplish as a player, to get into the Hall of Fame.So its the one constant that I keep. Yeah you could wear all five, but that might be just a little gaudy. I always wear one.Those rings and now the book help remind Fuhr of what he has done in hockey but hadnt really thought about much.When you hit 50 you get to a certain point where you get to reflect on life a little bit, Fuhr said. Im gaining on the top of the hill, I dont think Im there yet because I plan on living to 100.The best part of it is I realize how comfortable I am in life, more than anything. Thats what the book gave me, the opportunity to figure out is that lifes pretty good. Actually I didnt think it was that bad before, but I know now its pretty good.---Follow @SWhyno on Twitter Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
