If the detour leads to the ultimate destination for Tim Cahill and the Socceroos, Australians wont be worried at all about the route the national team has taken to the Asian Cup final.Australia takes on the United Arab Emirates in the semifinals on Tuesday at Newcastle, 160 kilometres (100 miles) north of Sydney. Organizers no doubt would have preferred a semifinal at a heaving former Olympic stadium in Sydney on Australia Day, Jan. 26, but the Socceroos missed out on that by losing their last group game 1-0 to South Korea.The South Koreans instead took that slot — at Australias marquee stadium on the national holiday — for their semifinal against 2007 champion Iraq.Australians widely expected, then, that their team would be meeting defending champion Japan in the 33,000-seat stadium at Newcastle, in a rematch of the 2011 Asian Cup decider. But the UAE ensured that wouldnt happen with a surprising quarterfinal win on penalties over the four-time champions.And so both teams will be aiming for their first continental title when Australia hosts the UAE, a team that is growing in confidence and self-belief.Cahill produced two spectacular goals to deliver Australia a 2-0 quarterfinal win over China last week.The United Arab Emirates earned their place after a thrilling 5-4 upset win on penalties after their quarterfinal with regional powerhouse Japan finished 1-1 after extra time.While Australia has enviable attacking options with the likes of Cahill, Massimo Luongo, Robbie Kruse and captain Mile Jedinak, the UAE boasts the most prolific forward in the tournament in Ali Mabkhout, who has found the net four times.The 35-year-old Cahill has three goals this tournament and has captured the imagination of home fans with his uncanny ability to turn a game with pinpoint headers and inspired shots at goal.UAE playmaker Omar Abdulrahman, meanwhile, has proved a formidable foe this Asian Cup.Abdulrahman is a good player, so is Mabkhout up front, Australia coach Ange Postecoglou said, before adding that he was more concerned with the threat posed by the team as a whole than by individual players.They are probably one of the few national teams in this region, and particularly the Middle East, who have been pretty stable in terms of their coach and their team, Postecoglou said. They look more cohesive than some of the other sides that tend to chop and change a bit. That is where the danger lies, rather than with the individuals.Australia and the UAE have never met in a competitive match, and their last two friendlies have ended in scoreless draws. Australia joined the Asian confederation in 2006 and its best run at the continental championships was a runner-up finish to Japan in 2011, when the UAE finished 13th.Two quarterfinals were decided on penalties but that didnt concern Postecoglou, who didnt leave any doubt about his approach in the knockout stage.What they do becomes a little bit irrelevant ... we want to dictate the game, he said. So whether they sit back or come at us, we have to make sure in either scenario we are the ones on the front foot and dominating the game.UAE coach Mahdi Ali said the win over reigning champion Japan had given his team renewed confidence.Of course ... its a great thing it will give the players more confidence and more motivation, Ali said. We fought for the 120 minutes for this game and thank God that we win this game.He knows, though, that the game against Australia will rise to another level.Of course playing against Australia in Australia will be a very tough game, Ali said. It will be a very tough game and the stadium will be very crowded and we hope that we do the same in the next game (as we did against Japan). Air Max 95 Outlet España . Mika Zibanejad and Jason Spezza scored in the shootout to lead the Ottawa Senators to a 2-1 victory over Nashville on Saturday night. Zapatillas Air Max 95 Baratas . Villar connected off Joe Saunders (11-14), sending a drive well over the left-field fence for his first career homer. The Astros scored six times in the first three innings to chase Saunders. http://www.airmax95baratas.es/ . According to the Red Wings Twitter feed, Zetterberg plans to practice with the team on Thursday and is aiming for a second round comeback. Air Max 95 Rebajas . Pretty good hitting, too. Dan Haren pitched six innings and sparked the go-ahead rally with a single, leading Los Angeles to another win over the skidding Atlanta Braves, 4-2 on Tuesday night. Nike Air Max 95 España . For the Miami Heat, that was outstanding news. LeBron James scored the last of his 32 points on a layup that put Miami up for good with 11.Hes arguably the most naturally gifted tennis player on the circuit, yet Gael Monfils has little to show for in what has been a topsy-turvy career. The 30-year-old entertains his fans but regularly frustrates coaches and experts of the game due to his very unique take on tennis. Live Tennis: ATP World Tour Finals November 13, 2016, 6:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass But when the Frenchman is on song, you just cant take our eyes off the man they call La Monf. Monfils has qualified for ATP World Tour Finals for the first time and arrives at Londons O2 Arena as the elder statesman of the eight players on show this year. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. After the most rewarding season of his professional career, the man from the outskirts of Paris, is ready to show spectators what theyve been missing - an ultimate showman - and a genuine dark horse contender for the season-ending tournament. The livewire Frenchman is ready to put on a show at Londons O2 His elasticated reach and incredible leaps will no doubt leave mouths wide open in a group containing Milos Raonic, Dominic Thiem and Novak Djokovic.The US Open semi-final rematch against Djokovic is the one match in the group everyone will have their beady eye on. Players to win Tour Finals on debut: 1998 Alex Corretja 1978 John McEnroe 1974 Guillermo Vilas 1971 Ilie Nastase 1970 Stan Smith Monfils tried every trick he had to upset the Serbs rhythm at Flushing Meadows - without success - and hes only too aware that he will have to change his game plan if hes to record his first every victory over Djokovic in 14 attempts.I cant wait to take to the court and play my game, said a beaming Monfils during a press conference at the O2 on Friday. I have to face Novak and definitely this offers me one more chance to beat him for the first time. We take a look at the players that might cause an upset in Paris.dddddddddddd Here we look at the showman that is Gael Monfils Ive played him twice this year and I think I will definitely have to change my game plan, but I will be ready for him.Monfils has demonstrated a desire to win by securing his first Tour title in two years with victory in Washington.He has excelled on the Tour this year, but has often been the nearly man, losing finals in Rotterdam and Monte Carlo as well as reaching semi-finals in Toronto, the US Open and more recently in Japan.A year ago he was ranked 22, having just hired Mikael Tillstrom as his new coach, so a climb of 16 spots shows a marked improvement under the Swedes tutelage. Monfils speaks to the media at the O2 Arena Sky Sports tennis analyst Annabel Croft has praised the work Tillstrom has done with Monfils: Hes harnessing the talent and rawness, but still allowing a bit of that flair to flourish and also make him more consistent as well.Monfils has long had the talent to place himself among the worlds elite in the sport, but he now feels has the mentality not just to go deep, but to win major titles. Monfils Tennis Profiles: Gael Monfils The work we put on with my team this year has been good, said Monfils. The change that we made was good and I had to make some sacrifices, but it was worth it.When you make a sacrifice, you can never know the value to measure it. It showed me that everything I made this year was good and helped me to continue in that way. Monfils and Vasek Pospisil both played shots without looking in this entertaining rally at the Toronto Masters One thing is for sure, Monfils the man is more in tune with himself and ready to prove to the world that he is a genuine contender in the last tournament of the season, so beware of a Gael force heading to the banks of the River Thames.Check our game-by-game coverage from all group matches at the ATP World Tour Finals in London - including Gael Monfils - on skysports.com/tennis, our app for mobile devices and iPad and our Twitter account @skysportstennis.
