Gareth Southgate is an ideal fit for the position of England manager, says former Club England managing director Adrian Bevington. Kevin Love Team USA Jersey . Southgate has been at the helm for four matches on an interim basis since Sam Allardyce departed after just one game in charge.Southgate appears to be in pole position to land the role on a permanent basis, having been unbeaten in his four matches, which included an emphatic 3-0 defeat of Scotland in a key 2018 World Cup Qualifier. The former Middlesbrough manager will have to wait while an FA selection panel considers their options, but Bevington told Sky Sports News HQ that Southgate is definitely the man for the job. New QPR manager Ian Holloway did not hold back when hes asked about the England managers job I think hes earned the right to be England manager, said Bevington, who was Club England managing director between 2010-2015.Hes handled things incredibly well over the last two months. Hes used to the rhythm of international football, which is very different to club football.He knows the players, the players have spoken themselves that they support Gareth, and I think the time is right for him.Hes been in the system for several years now and has always been held in high regard.Theres no doubt the circumstances that led to him taking over as interim manager were unfortunate but hes worked with the players at all the different age groups, he knows the players coming through and, however weve reached this situation, hopefully once the panel have had their discussions and reached their decision, I think Gareth is an ideal fit.The FA have been criticised in some quarters for not having appointed Southgate yet, but Bevington says the ruling body have their reasons. England drew 2-2 with Spain on Tuesday having been 2-0 ahead He attended Tuesdays 2-2 draw with Spain and reported: Im not sure they need to interview other candidates, but process was the watchword at Wembley last night with people I was speaking to.They were very determined to have a full evaluation of the process, to learn whats worked.The FA took a lot of criticism at a recent Select Committee at Parliament over due process around the appointment of Sam Allardyce, so they need to make sure they are credible externally, but personally I think Gareth has done enough to earn the job.The performance last night alone was enough to show the players are with him and hes trying to take the style of play forward in terms of encouraging them to come out with the ball. England are unbeaten in Southgates four games in charge There was a lot of confidence on the pitch last night.I think its important he is appointed at the earliest opportunity. There isnt another fixture until March but it is important that Gareth, if they are going to appoint him, that he is given full support of the FA and, more importantly, the whole country.If hes trying to encourage the team to play with more freedom, people must understand what hes trying to do.Hes conducted himself brilliantly, the players are with him. Now is his time.Upgrade to Sky Sports now to watch Man Utd v Arsenal this Saturday and get the first six months half price!

The team also announced Tuesday that the Braves will wear a commemorative patch on the right sleeve during the season. The patch, shaped like home plate, carries the number 715, Aarons autograph and a "40th Anniversary" banner. Allen Iverson Team USA Jersey . LOUIS -- When Braves second baseman Tyler Pastornicky backpedaled into shallow right field to catch the popup and Jason Heyward didnt arrive fast enough to take charge, Kolten Wong got the green light. . His chance at winning a Stanley Cup in Philadelphia is over. Same with Jeff Carter. And Brian Boucher. Throw in Ville Leino and Dan Carcillo.TORONTO -- He has never been knocked down or taken down in his UFC career. His one loss was in reality a win, with his injured opponent needing surgery afterwards. Light-heavyweight champion Jon (Bones) Jones became the UFCs youngest-ever champion in March 2011 when, at 23 years eight months, he defeated Mauricio (Shogun) Rua at UFC 128. Now 26, Jones is the undisputed pound-for-pound king of mixed martial arts. And the American continues to rewrite the record book. Jones (18-1) has lost just one round in his 13-fight UFC career. And the 205-pounder made former champion Lyoto (The Dragon) Machida pay for that first round at UFC 140 in Toronto, locking on a standing guillotine choke in the second round before dropping the unconscious Brazilian onto the canvas with a thud. On Saturday, Swedens Alexander (The Mauler) Gustafsson becomes the latest to attempt to derail the Jones express when the two face off at UFC 165 at Torontos Air Canada Centre. It will be Jones third championship fight in the Ontario capital. At six foot five, Gustafsson (15-1) is a rare fighter who is taller than the 6-4 Jones. A perhaps over-enthusiastic UFC TV promo calls the Swede "the toughest test of (Jones) career." The bookies arent buying it, installing Jones as anything from a 7-1 to 12-1 favourite. For the champion, facing a fighter of similar stature means little other than a chance to silence critics who say he had yet to face someone of his body type. Jones rejects any suggestion the two fighters are similar, pointing to the Swede tapping out to a Phil Davis anaconda choke with five seconds left in the first round at UFC 112 in April 2010. "I wouldnt be able to sleep at night, knowing that I did that," Jones told The Canadian Press. "Height and reach are nothing," he added. "Its your spirit, its your work ethic, its your level of belief ... Its your story that makes you a champion, not simply just being tall with long arms. If it was being tall with being long arms, half the NBA would be world-class cage-fighters." Jones combination of size, youth and versatility have rendered him virtually unstoppable. Opponents have been unable to penetrate his prickly defence or survive his multi-faceted offence. He can hurt you with punches, elbows, knees and kicks from a variety of angles. And in recent fights, he has outshone his opponents at what they do best. He outwrestled Chael Sonnen, a former U.S. Olympic alternate. And he submitted jiu jitsu black belt Vitor (The Phenom) Belfort, twisting his arm like a pretzel in a keylock. Still, in a rare foray into deep waters, Jones had to escape a tight armbar in the first round against Belfort to continue his championship reign. Jones is tied for most consecutive title defences (five) and most finishes (nine) in UFC light-heavyweight history. He already holds the record for most submissions (five) by a light-heavyweight. According to FightMetric, Jones holds a combined 552-202 edge in significant strikes over his 13 UFC opponents. And 116 of those opponent significant strikes came in three fights -- against Andre Gusmao (34) and Stephan Bonnar (37) in his first two UFC outings and former champion Rashad Evans (45) in a 2012 meeting. His 10 other opponents failed to break the 20-mark in significant strikees, with five unable to land 10. Draymond Green Team USA Jersey. Veteran Vladimir (The Janitor) Matyushenko did not land one in a 2010 KO loss that lasted one minute 52 seconds. Jones finished him off with 10 elbow strikes in four seconds. With three more significant strikes, Jones will move past Tito Ortiz into second spot for most by a light-heavyweight. Forrest Griffin tops the division with 796. Jones has recorded 26 successful takedowns in his UFC career, well below the UFC record of 84 (in 20 fights) by welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. But Jones is so deadly with ground strikes that once an opponent is downed, he is usually out. Matt Hamill needed shoulder surgery after being rag-dolled to the ground and brutalized in a December 2009 bout. Jones carved Hamill with more than 40 elbow strikes to the head before the fight was stopped. Jones got up and celebrated with a cartwheel, only to have referee Steve Mazzagatti disqualify him for an illegal downward elbow. Jones has won all nine fights since, with five of his last six opponents being former champions. Following Hamill, he needed just three minutes 19 seconds to dispose of Brandon (The Truth) Vera. Put on his back, the former heavyweight needed facial surgery after being battered by Joness elbows. A former junior college champion wrestler, Jones turned his back on an athletic scholarship to Iowa when his girlfriend became pregnant. MMA was a way to pay the bills and he was good at it. The Jones genes helped. Older brother Arthur Jones is a six-foot-three 313-pound defensive end with the Baltimore Ravens. Younger brother Chandler is a 6-5, 265-pound defensive end with the New England Patriots. Father Arthur Sr. is a pastor in Binghamton, N.Y. He stands six foot one, with wife Camille a little over five foot eight. But her father was six foot seven and there is also size on Arthurs size of the family. Jon was skinny as a teenager, earning the nickname Bones as a six-foot-four 177-pound defensive lineman in high school football. Jones reach of 84.5 inches has been key to his success. According to ESPNs Sports Science, the fighter can cover 182 cubic feet with his long arms extended -- an area more than 80 per larger than the average male. His spinning elbow has been clocked at more than 900 degrees per second, faster than the blades of an Apache helicopter, according to ESPN. Gustafsson, who says his reach is 81.5 inches, has skills of his own. He has never been knocked down in the UFC and has defended 84.2 per cent of takedown attempts (the UFC average is 59 per cent). Like Jones, he is a busy striker. Gustafsson lands 3.98 significant strikes a minute, compared to 3.94 for Jones and 2.61 as the UFC average. Jones has the edge on defence, however, absorbing 1.44 strikes per minute, compared to 2.29 for the Swede (the UFC average is 2.61). Gustafsson has looked to improve by leaving Sweden to train at Alliance MMA in San Diego. But Jones believes the 26-year-old Swede, who marks each win with a sharks fin tattoo, is not yet at his level. "Hes only fought one guy (Rua) thats in the top 10." Waiting in the light-heavyweight wings is Brazilian hard man Glover Teixeira (22-2). The 33-year-old, who has not lost since March 2005, has the next title shot after winning all five of his UFC bouts.
