CANBERRA, Australia - Uli Stielike didnt hide his displeasure, despite his South Korea lineup securing an Asian Cup quarterfinal spot with a win over Kuwait.South Korea shrugged off injury and illness concerns off the pitch to beat Kuwait 1-0 on Tuesday night, with Nam Tae-hees first-half header enough to give two-time champion six points from two games in Group A. Australias later 4-0 win over Oman ensured both the Socceroos and South Korea would go through. Those teams will meet Saturday to determine top spot in the group.If we play the way we did today we have no chance against Australia he said, adding that the only good things to emerge from the Kuwait match was that South Korea had enough points to progress to the knockout stage and that we are no longer in the role of favourites for this competition.In a lot of phases in the game, Kuwait was the better team. And the result I think is very, very lucky today, Stielike said. With a performance like today you cannot go far in this tournament.Stielike was forced to make seven changes to the lineup that opened with a 1-0 win over Oman on the weekend. In the biggest of the setbacks before kickoff, team management revealed star winger Lee Chung-yong had fractured his shin bone and was preparing to fly home.In last two days, we had a big, big problem with fever in the team. At the moment, I have only 14 players without problems, he said. As a result ... as you saw today there were a lot of problems with a new team trying to find themselves on the pitch. We had lots of problems in the game I didnt expect so many problems.Stielike said Son Heung-min developed a fever and had to be taken to hospital on Tuesday morning.Maybe tomorrow more players will be sick, he said. If you have fevers in a group you dont know who will be affected next.Our main objective is now the recuperation of the players in these four days before the game against Australia.Lee, who plays for English club Bolton, was injured in the win over Oman and was diagnosed with a shin fracture on Tuesday. He will return to South Korea on Wednesday.Its a big loss, Stielike said. Every game, he is in the starting lineup. He plays every game for Bolton on the pitch. He has a lot of experience. I saw a lot of sad faces around him when the decision was taken to send him home, but we have to go on.Right-back Kim Chang-soo has also failed to recover from his injury, while attacker Son, midfielder Koo Ja-cheol and goalkeeper Kim Jin-hyun were all removed from the team due to a fever that worsened in the hours before kick-off.The replacements made heavy work of Kuwait, which lost 4-1 to Australia in the tournament opener.The only goal of the game came eight minutes before half-time when Nam headed home a perfect Cha Du-ri cross.The second half was a tough one for the Koreans, on the back foot for the majority of it. A shot from Ali Al Maqseed hit the post early and was a signal for an extended period of Kuwaiti pressure.Despite plenty of possession, pressure and chances, Kuwait couldnt find a way past substitute goalkeeper Kim Seung-gyu and fell out of contention ahead of its last group game against Oman at Newcastle. Tony Amonte Jersey . - Aroldis Chapman, with two black eyes, has returned to the Cincinnati Reds clubhouse four days after being hit in the face by a line drive. Chris Chelios Jersey . The team reported the signing on its website Thursday, but said Friday the deal was off in "a mutual parting of the ways that had to do with the language of the contract. https://www.cheapblackhawks.com/1187b-l-...blackhawks.html. It was the first game back in Columbus for Rangers star Rick Nash, the Blue Jackets franchise leader in goals, assists and games. He was given a standing ovation during a video tribute in the first period, but was booed loud and long after a second-period, two-handed shove up high on Columbus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky. Allan Stanley Jersey . -- EJ Manuel followed the worst game of his career with the best. Clark Griswold Jersey . -- Joe Thornton scored the tiebreaking goal with 5:39 left in regulation to help the San Jose Sharks overcome a two-goal deficit to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-3 on Thursday night.BUFFALO, N.Y. - J.A. Happ allowed one run on four hits in 4 2/3 innings in a rehab start for the Buffalo Bisons Thursday night, continuing his comeback from lower back tightness. Happ, the Toronto Blue Jays left-hander who has been on the disabled list since March 30, struck out six and walked two against the Pawtucket Red Sox. He threw 63 of his 90 pitches for strikes. Buffalo was held to six hits two by Munenori Kawasaki and Anthony Gose scored twice in a 7-4 loss. It was Happs second straight solid outing during his minor league assignment. He struck out five batters in a five-inning outing with single-A Dunedin on Saturday against Clearwater and allowed two runs on three hits. Back-to-back productive starts are a welcome development for Happ, who posted a 20.57 earned run average in four starts in spring training. Against Pawtucket, Happ picked up two strikeouts in the first, second and fourth innings. In the third, he allowed a hit and a walk with one out and eescaped damage by getting Ryan Lavarnway to ground into a double play.dddddddddddd. Happ yielded a leadoff homer in the fourth to Brandon Snyder, then followed up with back-to-back strikeouts. In the fifth, Happ had two runners on with one out and induced a bloop pop-out to Alex Hassan, but then was replaced by Marcus Walden, who got the final out to keep the game deadlocked at 1-1. Pawtucket struck for five runs in the seventh, all with two out, saddling Walden (0-1) with the loss. Happs back issues prevented him from earning the Blue Jays fifth-starter slot, which went to Dustin McGowan. Once Happ is healthy enough to head back to Toronto, its uncertain where the 31-year-old will be utilized. Despite starting 18 major league games last year, Happs 2013 season was marred by a skull fracture and sprained knee suffered in his seventh start. The injuries forced him to miss three months of action. This year, Happ has stated his desire to be part of the rotation. ' ' '
