VANCOUVER - Despite not having scored in almost three months, Vancouver Whitecaps head coach Carl Robinson has kept Sebastian Fe Antworten

VANCOUVER - Despite not having scored in almost three months, Vancouver Whitecaps head coach Carl Robinson has kept Sebastian Fernandez in the starting lineup. Mike Marjama Jersey .That faith was repaid on Saturday.Fernandez scored twice in the first half a€” his first goals since July 5 a€” as Vancouver cruised to a 2-0 victory over FC Dallas.The 24-year-old Uruguyan stands just five foot seven, but headed home his first in the 14th minute before cooly slotting home a second four minutes later.Terrific performance by the kid. It really was, said Robinson. He was a threat all game. His little movement patterns and his positional sense in getting into areas and causing problems for them was evident throughout the game.With the win, Vancouver (10-8-13) maintained its one-point lead over Portland in the race for the final playoff spot in Major League Soccers Western Conference after the Timbers downed the San Jose Earthquakes 2-1 later Saturday. Both the Whitecaps and Timbers have three regular-season games remaining.Fernandez hadnt scored in 14 games, including 12 starts, coming into Saturday, but Robinson said his play overall has been strong.His work ethics fantastic, said Robinson. Hes technically a very, very talented footballer and hes got ability. When he gets in the final third he makes things happen.Fernandezs only blemish on the night was a late yellow card that will force him to sit out Vancouvers critical game Friday on the road against the Seattle Sounders.I think it was a very good win for us, said Fernandez. This is a great group, a great team. We must keep going.Mauro Rosales played his best game for Vancouver since coming over in a trade with Chivas USA, picking up assists on both of Fernandezs strikes.Were very lucky to have him, Robinson said of the 33-year-old Argentine. He was excellent. His technical ability is second to none and he had a massive influence on the game today.Vancouver improved to 3-2-1 over its last six, while Dallas remains fourth in the West, five points up on the Whitecaps and one back of Real Salt Lake with one more game played.I thought we did really well, said Vancouver goalkeeper David Ousted, who picked up his 10th shutout of the season. First half we got our goals. Seba played fantastic and scored two great goals and the second half was great defending. Overall a good performance.Vancouvers three remaining games include that tough road matchup Friday against Seattle, which made Saturdays home date at B.C Place Stadium even more important.Fernandezs first goal came off a Rosales cross before the veteran midfielder made a great pass to set up the second.It is important for us for the strikers and the guys who play up front to get goals, to get confidence, said Rosales. This is what we need for the last push.Dallas (14-11-6) tried to fight back in the 33rd minute when striker Blaz Perez a€” who came in with three goals in two games against Vancouver this season a€” was ruled offside after getting behind the Whitecaps defence and beating Ousted.The visitors a€” now 4-4-0 over their last eight a€” had another opportunity to cut the lead in the 38th, but Vancouver midfielder Matias Laba made a goal-saving tackle on Dallas striker David Texeira right in front of Ousted off a break.Vancouver tied Dallas 2-2 at home on July 27 before dropping a 2-1 decision in Texas on Sept. 13, but Saturday seemed like it was always going to be belong to the Whitecaps.We went there three, four weeks ago and we took it on the chin, said Robinson, whose team won back-to-back games for the first time since May. We lost 2-1 in a game where we probably could have got something. Today was our day, but theyre a very good team.Robinson went with the same starting lineup for the third straight game after last weekends 2-1 come-from-behind victory over Real Salt Lake, and Ousteds goal wasnt really challenged much after halftime.Dallas had given Vancouver fits on set pieces in the earlier meetings, but that wasnt the case Saturday as the backline of Jordan Harvey, Andy OBrien, Kendall Waston and Steven Beitashour defended well in front of the steady Ousted.Credit to the back four in the second half especially, said Robinson. They defended properly and showed a lot of character out there. The game was won in the first half, but for me, the game was managed fantastically well in the second half.Tempers flared on both sides a bit towards the end of the match, which could make for a good battle in the playoffs a€” a likely scenario if the Whitecaps manage to edge out Portland for the final post-season spot in the West.I think if these two teams meet its going to be a brawl, to say it lightly, said Ousted. You just see that people get into every tackle.Notes: The Whitecaps announced Friday that out-of-favour striker Omar Salgado will join Mexican side Tigres UANL on a 12-day trial beginning Monday. The 21-year-old was the first pick in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft, but has made just 29 league appearances a€” including 12 starts a€” during his time with Vancouver. Salgado had been absent from practice in recent weeks, leading to speculation his time with the club could be coming to an end. ... Vancouvers remaining regular-season games after the trip to Seattle are at San Jose on Oct. 18 and home to the Colorado Rapids on Oct. 25. ... Portland plays home games against San Jose on Wednesday and Real Salt Lake on Oct. 17 before closing things out on the road against Dallas on Oct. 25. ... Dallas next game is Oct. 12 at home against the Los Angeles Galaxy. ... Saturdays attendance was 20,183. Seattle Mariners Jerseys .The McLaren MP4-30 was launched on Thursday, with chief executive Ron Dennis saying it marks the start of a lengthy journey back to winning grands prix and eventually world championships.McLaren, which hasnt won a grand prix since 2012, will be using Honda engines for the first time since 1992, and has signed two-time world champion Fernando Alonso to partner Jenson Button for the upcoming season. Guillermo Heredia Jersey . A Swiss Federal Tribunal ruling published Friday said that FIFAs disputes panel and the Court of Arbitration for Sport correctly imposed the sanction for Nantes enticing Guinea forward Ismael Bangoura to break his contract with Dubai club Al Nasr in January 2012. . -- Golden State Warriors reserve centre Ognjen Kuzmic is expected to miss at least six weeks after undergoing surgery on his fractured right hand.TURIN, Italy - Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has signed a new contract with the Italian giant, tying him to the Serie A club until 2019.Juventus confirmed the deal Friday, saying that chief executive Giuseppe Marotta had announced at a shareholders meeting that before coming here we signed Paul Pogbas contract extension which binds us uuntil 2019. Nelson Cruz Jersey. Pogbas previous deal was set to expire in 2016.The France international joined from Manchester United in 2012 and helped Juventus to two successive Serie A titles.The 21-year-old midfielder has been linked with moves to Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, as well as a return to the Premier League.
