GENEVA -- China aims to build its growing influence at FIFA by fielding a candidate in Asian elections for new seats on the world soccer bodys ruling council that were created during anti-corruption reforms. Tracy Mcgrady Jersey .The Chinese soccer federations general secretary, Zhang Jian, is competing against candidates from Iran, Qatar and Singapore for two vacant FIFA seats in a Sept. 27 vote.The Asian Football Confederation said Friday that all four men, plus three female candidates seeking a seat guaranteed for women, have passed integrity checks by FIFA to stand for election by its member federations meeting in Goa, India.Zhangs rivals are: Ali Kafashian Naeni of Iran; Saoud Al Mohannadi of Qatar; Zainudin Nordin of Singapore.The elections are the first to send Asian delegates to FIFAs ruling committee since Chinese conglomerate Wanda Group signed as a World Cup sponsor through 2030 in March.The firm said then that becoming a top-tier sponsor, paying FIFA hundreds of millions of dollars, left it better placed to help decide which countries host future World Cups.China would next be eligible to host at the 2030 tournament. Because Qatar is hosting the 2022 World Cup, Asian bidders are excluded from a 2026 race expected to include the United States and Canada.The 2030 decision should be in a vote of all FIFAs member federations from a shortlist agreed by the ruling council -- a rebranded version of the much-criticized executive committee which used to pick World Cup hosts.Creating the council and giving World Cup hosting votes to all members are among FIFA reforms agreed in recent rounds of modernizing changes provoked by bribery scandals and World Cup voting allegations since 2018 host Russia and Qatar were picked in 2010.Another reform is a guaranteed council seat for a woman from each of the FIFAs six continental confederations.The AFC said Friday that its three candidates are: Moya Dodd of Australia; Mahfuza Ahkter of Bangladesh; Han Un Gyong of North Korea.Dodd, a lawyer and former international player, has helped raised the profile and influence of womens soccer as a co-opted FIFA executive committee member since 2013.FIFA gave its confederations a September deadline to hold elections for female delegates ahead of the next council meeting.President Gianni Infantino will chair a first session of the expanded 37-member panel on Oct. 13-14 in Zurich.Among the other Asian candidates, Nordin is president of the Singapore federation and Qatars Al Mohannadi is making a second bid after failing to win election in April 2015. Lucas Nogueira Raptors Jersey . -- Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis was charged Thursday with driving while intoxicated, a day after he was suspended for an NFL substance-abuse policy violation. Jakob Poeltl Jersey . Coach Mike Munchak says Fokou stretched ligaments in his left knee Oct. 13 against Seattle, which could keep out up to five weeks even though the linebacker didnt need surgery. http:///...-raptors-jersey-c-9/ . They had already blown a double-digit lead, fans were hitting the exits, and a long seven-game road trip waited at the end. GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Derrick Rose?rejoined the New York Knicks on Saturday, eager to put his civil trial behind him and get back to playing basketball.Rose was with the team for the first time since Oct. 4, when he left for his trial in Los Angeles after a preseason game in Houston.Rose and two friends were found not liable in a civil lawsuit that accused them of gang-raping Roses ex-girlfriend when she was incapacitated from drugs or alcohol. Rose and his friends were being sued for $21.5 million.The issue was a huge issue. I took it very serious, Rose said after Saturdays practice. Im a grown man. I put myself in this situation and I had to get myself out. I was focused the entire time.Out of all of this, the only thing that really hurt me was missing my sons birthday party, missing his birthday. Those were the two things that I was worried about the most. Not being there with my family ... it hurt. And being there for my son. That was the only thing.Rose was asked whether he felt vindicated after maintaining his innocence.A little bit, he said. But at the same time, there was another person that was involved in this. So, if anything, Ive just been praying for myself and praying for her because the issue is very big in the States and everywhere. So just praying for everyone that was involved and knowing that all this is out of my control.The only thing I could work on is being a better person, being a better dad, brother, cousin, uncle. Being the best I could be so I could help others.Saying it felt like heaven to be back on the basketball court, Rose enters his first season with the Knicks motivated and excited about a fresh start, both on and offf the court. Jared Sullinger Jersey. It would change anyone, Rose said of the civil lawsuit. But I spoke on it and this is all behind me now. The only thing I can focus on is worrying about the future. I love being around my teammates. I love the way that we are coming together as a team.Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said Rose looked good physically and did not have trouble with the teams schemes.He did his homework, said Hornacek, who sent Rose plays to study during the two-week trial and went over some of the offense with his point guard Friday.Hornacek said well find out, when asked whether Rose can play starters minutes during Tuesdays season opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers.He looks in pretty good shape, Hornacek said. It may be a situation where we put him in. If he looks like hes tired, well get him out and then get him back quickly. Maybe the rotation is a little different as he first comes back.Rose says hes refocused after being traded from Chicago this summer. The former MVP is entering the final year of his contract and says he wants to prove he is healthy after having three knee surgeries.Im very confident, man, Rose said. I really believe this why Im here, to hoop. I still have a lot of confidence in my ability. The confidence never left. If anything [the trial] made me focus a little more, like having time to myself in the gym and just working on things that I think I need to work on.We didnt make the playoffs last year. Im still chasing something right now. I just want to hoop and just let my game speak for itself.
