Coming off disappointing tie, SU men’s soccer prepares for toughest challenge yet in USF

first_img Published on September 29, 2010 at 12:00 pm Contact Michael: [email protected] | @Michael_Cohen13 Ian McIntyre didn’t sugarcoat it. He was blunt, and he was honest. When his team travels to Tamp, Fla., this weekend, it will face a very, very tough South Florida squad. ‘There is a reason why they were ranked at the top and we were ranked at the bottom last year as well as preseason,’ he said. McIntyre didn’t hide that from his players, either. He told them exactly what to expect come Saturday. ‘He didn’t lie to us,’ forward Federico Agreda said. ‘He told us the truth. They’re a great team.’ With that honest, straight-forward verbiage from their head coach, the Syracuse (1-4-3, 0-0-1 Big East) men’s soccer team prepares to face South Florida this weekend. In the Bulls, the Orange faces its best opponent so far this season. South Florida (5-2-1, 0-1-0 Big East) began the season ranked No. 16 in the NSCAA poll and already has a win over a Top 10 team. SU looks to continue its three-match unbeaten streak, but it will need to pull a major upset in order to do so.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text In reality, Saturday’s game is a matchup of two programs that are near opposites of one another. The Bulls have reached the NCAA tournament in each of the past three seasons. In 2008, the team reached the Elite Eight after winning the Big East tournament championship for the first time in school history. Syracuse, on the other hand, has only qualified for the Big East tournament twice since 2000. It’s been 26 years since the Orange reached the NCAA tournament. ‘It’s a quality team,’ McIntyre said. ‘A well-coached, quality team. They have not just 11 players, but they have a lot of good quality coming off the bench as well. We know that we’ll be challenged.’ The Bulls have proved that already in 2010 with a 2-1 win over then-No. 9 Ohio State. That win brought USF back into the national polls after a disappointing opening-game loss dropped them out. ‘I actually watched them on TV against UConn last week, and they looked pretty good even though they ended up losing,’ SU midfielder Geoff Lytle said. That’s in direct contrast to the Orange, who looked anything but good in a dismal double-overtime draw against Canisius in its last game. For the sixth time this season, SU allowed its opponents to score the game’s first goal. Constantly having to play from behind, the team has failed to overcome any of its six deficits. The Orange lost four of those six games. With that in mind, McIntyre and the players are trying to get out of the destructive habit that is coming out flat. Agreda feels that if the Orange can manage to score first, it would give the team a huge boost to actually be playing with a lead. ‘(Scoring a goal early) would bring us that confidence that we haven’t felt yet,’ Agreda said. ‘I think it would be a good push for us, especially at their house. It will knock them down and create a better game environment for us.’ One way SU can do that is by taking advantage of midfielder Nick Roydhouse’s left foot. He has scored each of the last four goals for the Orange and has tallied four times as many points as anyone else on the team. A specialist on set pieces, Roydhouse has proven dangerous on both free kicks and corners. He delivers a good ball into the middle of the field where his teammates hope to get on the end of it. ‘One thing we would like to take advantage of is our ability to score on restarts,’ Lytle said. ‘Nick can put great services in, and we have guys that can just get on the end of balls.’ If scoring hadn’t proved difficult enough for the Orange, USF’s goalkeeper won’t make it any easier Saturday night. Jeff Attinella is the reigning Big East Goalkeeper of the Year and a 2009 Division-I All-America First Team selection. He already has five shutouts this season. And on the other side, the Orange has already been shut out three times this season. And one short, concise sentence from McIntyre summed up the current state of Syracuse soccer as it prepares to face one of Big East’s top teams. Said McIntyre: ‘I’m sure there’s not a lot of people outside of our locker room expecting too much.’ [email protected] Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Aihen Muñoz: “I learn a lot from a great player like Monreal”

first_imgAihen Muñoz was called to be the owner of the left wing of the Royal Society in defence. Until the arrival of Nacho Monreal, which increased the competition in the position and relegated him to the bench until the arrival of the Cup. Now he opens the door of ownership again in league with the injury of Monreal. Aihen Muñoz, on his loss of ownership – Is this season still just as exciting for Aihen despite the fact that Monreal’s arrival has taken minutes away?Yeah right. For me being in the first team of the Real is a dream. Football has these ups and downs and now it turns around and I ended up playing.-Do you also learn when you don’t play in Primera?Yes Yes. In all situations you learn. In the day everything is an apprenticeship, especially for a young boy like me.– Do you consider that Monreal’s arrival hurt him?No, I don’t think so. I’m learning a lot. I had not experienced this situation of being on the bench and I am getting many positive things, and I learn a lot from a great player like Monreal, who advises me and helps me a lot.– It has given him many laps to the head since he lost the title in day 3 by the arrival of Monreal?Sure, because you always want to play. There are moments of downturn. But what you have to do is train well day by day.-And what was he taking refuge in?In training and giving everything in training, and stay with the clear awareness that I do my job well.-What were the most complicated moments?I could not tell you what they were exactly, but when you see that you do not play they give you dips, but you recover on a daily basis and you remain calm because you always give it your all and train well. -And if I give you a choice: win the Cup or enter the Champions League?The Cup, no doubt. We have not won a title for a long time and that would be amazing. It would be something precious.-Next rival, Betis …It has a very high level and high quality players, but we also have them. It will be nice to see and we will go out for all. It is clear that we will create dangerous situations, but we must be prepared to defend, that they also attack very well.– Does losing at home against Villarreal make them travel to Seville with more need?We are calm, because we are going game by game, and although it is difficult to win at Betis’ house, we will go out to make our brave game, taking advantage of the good dynamics away from home, to continue at the top. Aihen Muñoz, between winning the Cup and entering the Champions League – Happy to play again in the Cup?A lot, yes. I wanted to go back to eleven and it went well in Ceuta. I felt good, the team also went out for everyone, and in the end I was comfortable. We did the job well and became calm at home. And let’s see if we continue against Espanyol the same in Copa.– The fact that Monreal continues touched and the option is opened makes him take the week with more illusion?Yes that excites after not playing so long. Then Imanol will decide, but I’m looking forward to it.center_img -How is the relationship with Monreal?We get along really good. We are Navarrese and they are football things. It helps me a lot at all times and I take all his advice.– Do you feel that it is a good opportunity to have continuity again in the first team?I really want to play and you never know. I am prepared to play and then what has to come, it will be seen. Last year I lived on the bright side, and this year I have the other side, but I am calm, because I am a young boy who has yet to learn a lot.– At some moment it was considered to leave the Real one in the winter market?Nerd. I am very happy here, it is where I have always wanted to be, in my house. I’m very happy.– Is it compatible to do something big in the league and the Cup?Is that if we want to be with the best, we have to get used to compete two games per week, and I feel that we are more than physically prepared to do so. We are in both butt competitions and we go for both. – Did Imanol tell you something when Monreal arrived knowing that you were going to have fewer opportunities?No, it’s going. This is professional football and the coach decides who has to play, and has now decided that it is Nacho who plays. But this can change and you can choose me to play from now on. And I always work with that illusion.-You are always smiling, don’t you even lose it after all this time without ever playing?Impossible. Because this is a dream for me. If you tell me this a year and a half ago I don’t believe it. But it is clear that I want to play.– How a year ago in his debut at the Bernabéu has changed?I’m not the Sanse kid anymore. In that above all. In the desire not, I continue with them. “The Cup, without a doubt. We have not won a title for a long time.” “When you see that you don’t play they give you dips, but you recover on a day-to-day basis”last_img read more
