TORONTO -- The team that was built to beat Canada didnt beat anyone.And really, this ending was just about perfect. If youre going to go down in flames, go all the way.Team USA most certainly did, ending its disappointing World Cup appearance with a 4-3 loss to the Czech Republic on Thursday.The American players were booed off the ice by the at the Air Canada Centre crowd at the conclusion of the game.Team USA pushed back in a meaningless game after trailing by two goals through two periods of play, to at least avoid a meltdown reminiscent of the 5-0 loss in the bronze-medal game in Sochi during the 2014 Olympics, but its very small consolation in a disastrous tournament.They were given a spot in the easiest World Cup group, with Team Europe and Czech Republic the consensus No. 7 and No. 8 teams in this tournament. Team USA managed just three goals against those two teams.During the second period against the Czechs, Team USA defenseman Ryan Suter scored an own-goal, one that gave the Czech Republic its second goal of the game and it was a moment that pretty much captured the whole tournament for the Americans. So many of their problems in this tournament were self-inflicted -- from questionable roster decisions to forgetting to show up on time against Team Europe in the opener, an underwhelming performance in which they never recovered.Justin Abdelkader, whose inclusion on the first draft of the Team USA roster became a point of debate for those who disagreed with GM Dean Lombardis plan, got a small bit of redemption with his first goal of the tournament, converting on a great feed from Dustin Byfuglien, but it was a rare highlight in this tournament for the Americans.Team USA finishes 0-3 with a goal-differential of minus-6, which pushed Finland at the bottom of the standings. For a team that entered this World Cup with aspirations of winning it all, its as disappointing a final tally as could have been imagined.Three stars:1. Milan Michalek, F, Team Czech Republic: Sure, one of his goals came when Suter inadvertently knocked the puck past Team USA goalie Ben Bishop, but he finished with two goals for a team that struggles to score. Thats worthy of top billing. The Michalek family can leave this tournament with pride, with Milan and Zbynek combining for three goals in the game.2. Petr Mrazek, G, Czech Republic: He allowed three goals but came up big when needed most in the third period. He absolutely robbed Patrick Kane with a sprawling save in the third period while the Czech Republic was clinging on to a one-goal lead. He made another one on Abdelkader with just over two minutes left. He finished with 36 saves.3. Ryan McDonagh, D, Team USA: His shorthanded goal gave the game new life and actually showed his team wasnt willing to roll over without some fight in the third period. There were a lot of problems with Team USA in this tournament, but McDonagh wasnt one of them. He ended up with the team lead in goals, with two. Authentic NBA Jerseys Cheap .

Jon Montgomery of Eckville, Alta. Josh Risdon was in holiday mode when he last visited Thailand, but it will be all business this time around as the Perth Glory defender attempts to fix the Socceroos right back woes.Risdon was thrilled to be named in the Socceroos 23-man squad to take on Thailand for Australias next World Cup qualifier on November 15 in Bangkok.But he is far from assured of a starting berth at his preferred right back position, with Germany-based Milos Degenek also vying for the troublesome slot.Other rivals for the position - Ryan McGowan and Jason Geria - werent included in the 23-man squad, giving Risdon and Degenek a perfect chance to shine.A revolving door of players has tried but failed to lock down the right-back position in recent times, and Risdon is desperate to make it his own.The 24-year-old, who has three Socceroo caps to his name, spent time in Phuket and Phi Phi Islandss when he last visited Thailand.ddddddddddddBut his full focus will be on soccer this time around.It will be a different trip this time, Risdon said.It was a goal of mine starting the season to get back into the Socceroos side.
