Brazil legend Zico has criticised Neymars captaincy of the countrys Olympic side, and says he fears further embarrassment for the nation with another group exit looming.Brazil went into this summers Olympic football tournament as huge favourites, with Barcelona star Neymar just one of a number of top talents who were widely expected to take the gold medal, especially with most other countries not sending stars as their allotted three over-age players. (Olympic soccer players must be 23 and younger.)However, Rogerio Micales side have drawn both their opening group games 0-0, the first against 10-man South Africa and the second against Iraq. They must now beat Denmark on Wednesday to avoid an early exit.Neymars on- and off-the-field behaviour has brought criticism in the past?from retired Selecao legends doubting he deserved to skipper the senior national team.Former star Zico, who played in the 1980s, told Globoesporte?that the 24-year-old was not showing the leadership and focus required to be a captain.The captain of our team is not up to being captain, Zico said. He must worry just about football. But, just the opposite, they just started complaining that Iraq were wasting time. They needed to play football.Zico said that after the Selecaos early Copa America Centenario group exit and the 2014 World Cup semifinal humiliation by Germany on home soil, he feared something similar was about to happen now at the Olympics.Exit would be an embarrassment for those representing Brazilian football, he said. But in recent years, such embarrassment has happened a lot in Brazilian football. This would be another.Issues deep in the Brazilian game were a problem, Zico said, while adding that in the past, big stars had been able to come up with something big to win a game.Nobody can work magic in two weeks, and the Brazil team always comes together at the last moment, he said. There is no team organisation. And neither can we count on those beasts who used to decide games.Zico said the team still can turn things around, though, as there is no outstanding side in the tournament.I believe that Brazil will beat Denmark and can take the gold medal, he said. There is no team here which is dominating.Ahead of the make-or-break game against Denmark, with criticism of Neymar rising in his home country, Brazil coach Micale told ESPN that people should remember the senior star had made an effort to play in the tournament as an over-age player.If we do not respect our stars, then they will not want to be with us, Micale said. Neymar wanted to represent his national team. Wholesale Senators Jerseys . Jeff Green scored 13 points and Kris Humphries 12 for the Celtics, who nearly blew an 18-point, second-half lead.

NEW YORK -- A dozen young Australian runners from indigenous tribes once targeted for genocide had a different marathon goal: The finish line is just a start for us.So said Robert de Castella, a onetime top marathoner who trained them for Sundays New York City Marathon.Running a marathon for their first time, the runners will need their new physical and mental prowess to return home and tackle the life-threatening problems of their Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, he said. Generations of abuse at the hands of European colonizers have left many indigenous Australians with a 20-year life expectancy gap due to addictions, mental health illnesses and other diseases, plus heightened suicide and incarceration rates, said de Castella.The 12 Australians -- representing their countrys indigenous population of almost 1 million, or 3 percent -- were raising funds for the Indigenous Marathon Foundation that de Castella started about six years ago.When I saw firsthand what was happening, I was ashamed of our country -- and I also saw the opportunity to use the power of running, de Castella said.The Australians were among a field of about 20,000 foreigners from more than 120 nations running the 2016 race dominated by foreign winners. Mary Keitany, of Kenya, and Ghirmay Ghebreslassie, of Eritrea, won this years race.One proud Frenchman, who had run the Paris race in the past, conceded that he prefferred New York.ddddddddddddNew York is more magical, said Vincent Dogniaux. You feel more support from the crowd here. Its bigger, livelier and more emotional.Seydou Kane, of Niger, said he was so proud to be representing his west African country. He said he didnt think twice about running his first New York marathon instead of another big urban one.Of course, cmon! Iconic, this is the city that never sleeps, he said. The crowd, the stamina -- one of the runs thats a must-do and thats it.As the first three of de Castellas fierce runners wrapped up Sundays race, he concluded: The harder something is, the better, because you need to have a purpose to do incredible things.De Castella brings a new team to New York each year, after each member competes for a slot.I live in a place where poor health killing people is the norm, says Zideon Fielding, 22, a health worker from a community of 300 in the Australian desert. I thought if I tried the marathon approach, I could create change, with drive and persistence.Meghan Highsold, an Aboriginal attorney, said shes the daughter of a man who was forcibly adopted by a white family to wipe out his heritage.I want to use my marathon skills to help people make changes, to manage mental health in a good way, she said. Its all about now. ' ' '
