ISTANBUL, Turkey -- Ebenezer Assifuah scored his second goal in the closing minutes of extra time as Ghana beat Chile 4-3 to reach the semifinals of the Under-20 World Cup on Sunday. Assifuahs header completed Ghanas comeback after Angelo Henriquez put Chile 3-2 up in the eighth minute of extra time. Seidu Salifu equalized in the 113th after being set up by Clifford Aboagye. Both teams were locked at 2-2 in regulation. "This was really a cliffhanger match," Ghana coach Sellas Tetteh said. "That is what this tournament is about, to show good football and to entertain people." The only African nation to win the event, in 2009, Ghana will next play France while Iraq takes on Uruguay in the other semifinal. Earlier Sunday, Iraq conceded the lead three times to draw 3-3 with South Korea before winning a penalty shootout. Tetteh praised his team for coming from behind for a second straight match. In the previous knockout round, Ghana beat Portugal 3-2 with two late goals. "We didnt panic, we still played our type of football," Tetteh said. "I have to give credit to the boys ... this was a complete performance from a determined team." Earlier in the tournament, Ghana narrowly escaped elimination after losing group matches against Spain and France before advancing on goal difference following a 4-1 win against the United States. "Its a wonderful feeling for us to progress to the semifinal," Tetteh said. "We started from a very low point. The progression of this team is wonderful." Ghana took the lead in the 11th when Frank Acheampong set up Moses Odjer, who controlled the ball on his chest before hammering it past goalkeeper Dario Melo. Nicolas Castillo scored his fourth goal of the tournament with a fierce strike to level in the 23rd, and Henriquez gave Chile the lead four minutes later with a low shot from just outside the area. Ghana pressed for an equalizer in the second half and got its reward in the 72nd when Ebenezer Assifuah hit the target for his first goal. Iraq striker Farhan Shakor, who scored twice in regulation, converted the decisive penalty after Lee Chang-geuns spot kick was saved by goalkeeper Mohammed Hameed. Iraq beat Paraguay 1-0 through Shakors goal in extra time in the previous round. Iraqs previous best achievement was reaching the quarterfinals in 1989. After the match ended 2-2, Farhan looked to have sent Iraq through with his goal in the 118th minute, only for substitute Jung Hyun-cheol to equalize for South Korea with the last kick of the match. Two minutes after coming on, Jungs 25-meter strike was deflected by the defence to give Hameed no chance. South Korea, which missed injured top-scorer Ryu Seung-woo, beat Colombia in a shootout in the previous round. It also defeated Iraq on penalties during the final of this years Asian Under-19 Championship. Playing without suspended key striker Mohanad Abdulraheem, Iraq took the lead in the 21st minute from a penalty by Ali Faez after Kim Hy-un fouled Ali Adnan in the area. Five minutes later, Kwon Chang-hoon headed the ball into the net from a far throw-in by South Korea left back Sim Sang-min. Three minutes before halftime, Shakor made it 2-1 with his first off a rebound after goalkeeper Lee Chang-geun saved a shot by Ali Qasim. In the 50th, Iraq levelled again as loose defending by Iraq allowed Lee Gwang-hun, who replaced Kim at halftime, to score with a header at the near post. Ravens Youth Jerseys .

Authentic Ravens Jerseys .Y. -- Jayna Hefford scored the winning goal Friday as Canada survived a scare with a 4-3 win over Sweden at the Four Nations womens hockey tournament. ARCADIA, Calif. -- The fall is when television networks roll out their new shows, but for trainer Art Sherman, hes hoping the next episode of the California Chrome Show in the Awesome Again Stakes on Saturday at Santa Anita is a rerun.I wish hed run a race like in the Pacific Classic, Sherman said, referring to California Chromes five-length romp on Aug. 20. That would make my day.It no doubt would get high ratings. California Chrome is ranked as the best horse in the world, and hes certainly the most popular runner here in his home state. A large crowd is expected to turn up in 86-degree weather for the Saturday card at Santa Anita, which has five Grade 1 races, each worth $300,000, all offering fees-paid berths to their respective Breeders Cup races through the Win and Youre In program.The Awesome Again is the Wests major prep for the $6 million Breeders Cup Classic on Nov. 5, also at Santa Anita. The Awesome Again comes six weeks after the Pacific Classic and five weeks in front of the Breeders Cup, making it an ideal intermediate stop for California Chrome.This will set him up well for the Classic, Sherman said. He loves Santa Anita.California Chrome has won four times in seven starts here, including the Santa Anita Derby in 2014 and the San Pasqual earlier this year. His losses include a close third-place finish in the 2014 Breeders Cup Classic and a second to Shared Belief in the 2015 San Antonio, both strong efforts.A win in the Awesome Again would also keep California Chrome in line for a $1 million bonus to a horse who can sweep the Pacific Classic, Awesome Again, and Breeders Cup Classic.California Chrome has won all five of his starts this year and is the acknowledged front-runner for Horse of the Year. He earned a 113 Beyer Speed Figure in the Pacific Classic, equaling his career best.On paper, the Awesome Again has many similarities to the Pacific Classic. Once again, California Chrome has drawn the rail. Once again, Dortmund, Hard Aces, Hoppertunity, and Win the Space are entered against him. The differences are that this is Santa Anita, not Del Mar, and the distance is 1-1/8 miles as opposed to the Pacific Classics 1-1/4 miles.In the Pacific Classic, jockey Victor Espinoza sent California Chrome aggressively from the rail, took the track from his rivals, and never looked back. Thats the rerun Sherman and his son and assistant, Alan, want to see in tthe Awesome Again.ddddddddddddGet him out of there and see what happens after that, Alan Sherman said Thursday at Santa Anita after California Chrome had a routine gallop.California Chrome carries the top weight of 125 pounds and concedes four pounds to all his rivals.Dortmund, third in the Pacific Classic, drew right next to California Chrome in post 2, and he is adding blinkers for the first time since his debut 23 months ago. In the Pacific Classic, he was ridden passively leaving the gate and conceded the lead to California Chrome. The shorter distance of the Awesome Again, the outcome of the Pacific Classic, and the addition of blinkers all point to him being more involved early this time.Dortmund has won all five of his starts at Santa Anita, and he is 2 for 2 at 1 1/8 miles, including his victory in the 2015 Santa Anita Derby.His trainer, Bob Baffert, also entered Hoppertunity, who was fourth in the Pacific Classic, but Baffert has been leaning all week toward sending him instead to the $1 million Jockey Club Gold Cup at Belmont Park on Oct. 8 and said again on Thursday that that was his inclination. Baffert said he entered Hoppertunity in the Awesome Again just in case something happened, but barring something unforeseen by Saturday, Hoppertunity is likely to scratch.A win by anyone else -- Hard Aces, Soi Phet, Win the Space, or El Huerfano, who is also entered in the John Henry Turf Championship on Sunday -- would be a major surprise.The Awesome Again is race 7 on an 11-race card that begins at 12:30 p.m. Pacific. It is the second of five straight Grade 1 races on the card. Preceding it is the FrontRunner, for 2-year-olds, featuring Klimt and Straight Fire, the one-two finishers in the Del Mar Futurity.Following the Awesome Again are the Rodeo Drive, a wide-open race for female grass runners, which includes Avenge and Sobradora Inc. among the field of 14; then the Zenyatta, in which champions Beholder and Stellar Wind meet for the third time; and, finally, the Chandelier, which drew 12 2-year-old fillies, including American Cleopatra, Champagne Room, Noted and Quoted, and With Honors.The FrontRunner, Awesome Again, Rodeo Drive, and Zenyatta all will be shown live by NBCSN on a 2-1/2-hour program beginning at 2:30 p.m. Pacific.
