Twente were Dutch champions six years ago but could now drop out of the top flight Club spokesman Jan Schutrups said: FC Twente cannot bear the financial consequences of this sanction.A atatement added: (We have) identified elements enabling (us) to contest the proposed definitive revocation of (our) licence to play in the Eredivisie - and thats what well do.The controversy stems from 2013 when the former FC Twente administration concluded contracts with investment company Doyen Sports.

A day after FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke said three stadiums would not be ready in time for the Dec. 31 deadline, Brazilian officials said they actually plan to deliver all six remaining venues after that date. They claim only three are delayed, with the other three being handed over after the expected date only because of problems accommodating the schedule of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, who wants to be present for the ceremonies.CHICAGO - Preparing for the final weekend of the regular season, the St. Louis Cardinals hoped to easily move past the non-contending Chicago Cubs.Instead, they ran into Chicagos buzzsaw a€” Jake Arrieta.Arrieta (10-5), coming off a one-hit shutout against Cincinnati last week, limited St. Louis to two hits and an unearned run while striking out 10 in seven innings, leading the Cubs to a 3-1 victory.Hes got swing-and-miss stuff in the strike zone and hes got the ability to get it out of the strike zone as well, and that makes him tough, Cardinals infielder Matt Carpenter said. Anytime you got a guy with that type of electric stuff, you kind of feel like youre on defence up there. Anytime he gets ahead of you, youre in a bad spot.Arrieta outdueled St. Louis John Lackey (3-3), both on the mound and at the plate. After Lackey intentionally walked Logan Watkins in the fourth inning, Arrieta hit a two-run triple a€” the first triple of his career and the first by a Cubs pitcher since 2012. The Cubs never surrendered the lead.Its amazing that that at-bat is the one that does it, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said.Lackey gave up two runs and five hits in 6 2-3 innings. He struck out eight, his most since joining the Cardinals at the trade deadline.The Cardinals, who clinched a playoff berth earlier in the week, remained 1 1/2 games ahead of Pittsburgh in the NL Central. The Pirates lost at Atlanta, reducing St. Louis magic number to three for clinching the division title.Im tired of looking up there and waiting for somebody else to help us, Matheny said following the game. Nobodys helped us all season long. Why are they going to start now?The Cardinals loss assured NL East champion Washington will open a division series at home.The Cardinals were held without a hit through four innings but managed two singles in thee fifth. Cordy Glenn Bengals Jersey.

Its just another positive thing to use moving forward into the off-season.Arrieta has allowed two or fewer runs in 19 of 25 starts this season.TRAINING ROOMCubs: SS Starlin Castro will miss the remainder of the season, according to manager Rick Renteria. Castro injured his left ankle sliding into home against the Milwaukee Brewers on Sept. 2.Cardinals: OF Jon Jay missed Wednesdays game due to a personal matter.
