MELBOURNE, Australia – Asias sports powerbrokers have reaffirmed their support for Sepp Blatters bid for a fifth consecutive term as FIFA president, dealing a blow to Prince Ali Bin Al-Husseins aspirations for the job. Billiga Nike Air Max .Asian Football Confederation president Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa told a news conference Friday that his organization will not reverse its previously pledged support for Blatter, even after the Jordanian princes decision to stand for the FIFA presidency.Everybody is aware that during the general assembly in 2013 and 2014, the AFC congress has decided to support Blatter for the fifth term, Al Khalifa said. All the member associations are committed to that, and from what I heard from them today and the last few days, they will continue to their promise onward.The 39-year-old Prince Ali, a FIFA vice-president, announced his candidature for the FIFA election earlier this week, before leaving for Australia to attend the Asian Cup. The FIFA election will be held May 29.Sheikh Salman said Prince Ali had not sought the backing of the Asian football authorities before announcing his candidacy.Nobody has consulted us before regarding this nominee, Sheikh Salman said. And if there is a nominee from the Asian confederation, it has to be supported by the Asian confederation with the consultation of the executive committee and the member associations, not by an individual.Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah of Kuwait, head of the Olympic Council of Asia and one of the continents most powerful sports officials, said Blatter deserves another term.We decided in the (AFC) general assembly to support Blatter. So now Prince Ali has to consider that, and he has to think about this matter a lot, Skeikh Ahmad said.The comments were made on the sidelines of an AFC congress in Melbourne, hours ahead of the Asian Cup opener between Australia and Kuwait in Melbourne.Prince Ali attended the congress, but declined requests for comment.While Sheikh Ahmad does not have a vote within the AFC, his Olympic committee has powerful influence in the region.He said Kuwaits vote would be going to Blatter.Its (Prince Alis) decision, he said. He took this decision without telling anybody or waiting for anybody to give his review or idea. So he has to decide.Ironically Prince Ali, elected by Asian members to the FIFA vice-presidency in January 2011, has wide support in Europe but not Asia, while that situation is reversed for the European Blatter.The Oceania Football Confederation, comprising New Zealand and the Pacific nations, has already said it will support Blatter.The 78-year-old Blatter has welcomed Prince Alis challenge as beneficial for debate.

Zuccarello broke up a scoreless duel between two Olympic goalies with 5:58 remaining, lifting the Rangers to a 1-0 victory over the Red Wings on Thursday night.Houston, TX ( – Kyle Korver scored 22 points on 4-of-8 shooting from beyond the arc to help the Atlanta Hawks to a 104-97 win over the Houston Rockets on Saturday. Paul Millsap and Al Horford each chipped in with 14 points and DeMarre Carroll added 13 for the Hawks, who have won three straight and 12 of their last 13. Dennis Schroder tallied eight points with six rebounds and six assists in the place of Jeff Teague, who missed the game with a strained left hamstring. Houston lost back-to-back home games for the first time since November of last season and also had a 19-game home winning streak against Eastern Conference opponents halted. Dwight Howard paced the Rockets with 19 points and 11 rebounds, while James Harden supplied 18 points and a career-high 14 assists. Jason Terry and Patrick Beverley each had 14 points in the loss. The Rockets acquired Corey Brewer from the Minnesota Timberwolves and Alexey Shved from the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday, but both players were inactive. Houston dealt Troy Daniels and some cash to acquire the two wings. The Rockets waived Francisco Garcia to make room for their newest additions. Houston charged back into the game with a late surge in the third quarter and it remained a back-and-forth affair in the fourth. The first half we were just slow to everything and they were knocking down shots, said Harden. (Then) we started playing our brand of basketball. Nike Air Max 90 Billigt Herr. Beverley tied the game at 90-90 on a 3-pointer with 3:08 left in the contest. Terry then committed a traveling violation before Horford found Millsap inside for a bucket and Kyle Korver nailed a triple on the following possession to make it a five-point game with 1:29 to play. Terrys floater was off the mark out of a timeout, then Schroder netted a pair of free throws at the other end to increase the cushion. They are a great team, they have great players and they have great spacing. We probably didnt adjust well enough (in the third), said Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer. I thought the first half was really how we want to play on both ends. Houston trailed 32-26 after the first and 52-40 at the half, then Harden opened the third quarter with a 3-pointer to jump-start a 9-0 burst that closed the gap. Atlanta countered, however, with six straight points and built its lead back to 12 minutes later on a Horford basket at the midway point. The Rockets finished the final 2:38 of the frame on a 13-4 run that tied the game up at 74-74 entering the fourth.
