PIRAEUS, Greece—Greece beat Lithuania 2-0 for its second straight win in
World Cup qualifying on Tuesday. Aldon Smith Jersey . Sotiris Ninis beat
goalkeeper Zydrunas Karcemarskas with a shot in the 55th minute after Costas
Mitroglou hit the crossbar with a header and Lithuanias defenders failed to
clear the ball. Mitroglou sealed the European Group G match in the 72nd,
finishing at close range after a one-two with Ninis. The Greeks worked hard for
their goals, with striker Fanis Gekas missing two headers in the first half and
Karcemarskas working well with his defenders to hold the hosts back. The
visitors rarely threatened, however, and finished the game without a single
clear chance. Greece won its opening qualifier in Latvia 2-1 last week, and
coach Fernando Santos said his side showed improvement since that game. “We
created chances, scored two goals, and could have got more … sometimes we lost
concentration, but Im happy,” Santos said. “I think Mitroglou coming on in the
second half put the pressure on them. And Sotiris had a really good day. So we
gave the crowd some good football.” Y.A. Tittle 49ers Jersey .Y. —Sarah Reid of

injuries, a suspension and international duty, Martin Rennie has plenty of holes
to plug in his roster before the Vancouver Whitecaps host FC Dallas on Wednesday
night. But the Whitecaps coach says he has the depth to ensure his team wont
skip a beat. You can watch the game live on TSN at 10pm et/7pm pt. Captain Jay
DeMerit, midfielder Gershon Koffie, winger Dane Richards and striker Darren
Mattocks will be among the players who were in the lineup for Vancouvers
impressive 2-1 win over Western Conference rivals Real Salt Lake last weekend
but will miss Wednesdays game. Still, Rennie expects his lineup to look even
better. Leeds United centre-back Andy OBrien and Scottish international striker
Kenny Miller are set to earn their first starting berths for the club against
visiting Dallas. “Its not too many changes really,” he said. “Its just a couple
of guys coming in from the last game, so its arguably a stronger team than the
one before so Ive no concerns about it.” DeMerit had to be substituted in
Saturdays win over Salt Lake after suffering a knock to the head in the 40th
minute and picking up a concussion. DeMerit could return a the road game against
Seattle Saturday, but meanwhile Scottish midfielder Barry Robson will wear the
captains armband in his absence. Koffie is suspended while Richards and striker
Mattocks are on international duty with Jamaica. Little-used defender Carlyle
Mitchell (Trinidad and Tobago), teenager Russell Teibert (Canada) and
30-year-old striker Etienne Barbara (Malta) will also be representing their
respective countries. However, the Whitecaps (10-7-7) feel theyre in good hands
against visiting Dallas (6-11-8). OBrien came off the bench to replace the dazed
DeMerit against Real and looked comfortable alongside fellow centre-half Martin
Bonjour, impressing returning first-choice goalkeeper Joe Cannon. “Already I
feel hes probably more comfortable with his feet than maybe Jay or Martin, so
hell bring that to us,” Cannon said. “He stepped right in the other day. “But I
think with any position on our team right now, its that way. A guy could go down
and we could replace him with someone and we dont lose much if anything at alll.

. ” Cannons praise of his teams depth was
echoed by experienced midfielder John Thorrington, who could make his first
appearance for the Whitecaps since injuring his right quad in a 3-0 road loss to
the Los Angeles Galaxy on June 23. “I think the organization has done a great
job building a strong squad so that when there are international call-ups,
injuries, dips of form or whatever it might be, weve got guys ready to step in,”
he said. “Theyve built a squad as deep as any Ive been a part of.” Thorrington
said he was feeling “no ill effects” from the quad strain and could emerge as a
replacement for Richards in the starting lineup. “Ive been feeling stronger as
each training session comes and if given an opportunity I now feel ready to go,”
he said. Of course, the ultimate decision lies with Rennie. “(Thorringtons)
naturally a very fit guy and also a very experienced player,” Rennie said. “And
hes been one of the best midfielders in the MLS almost every time hes been in a
run of games, so he would be ready to go if hes called upon for sure.” The
Vancouver faithful will be eager to see former Rangers and Celtic star Miller
have an impact in his first start for the club, but Rennie is warning against
expecting too much. “We wouldnt be putting too much pressure on him to do
anything spectacular,” he said, adding the 32-year-old was still in pre-season
mode. “But I think hell contribute well.” Dallas has only won three times in its
past 19 games and sits 10 points outside a playoff spot. The Toros have a
miserable road record—one win in 11 games—and will find it even harder to
cause an upset with midfield trio Brek Shea (USA), Julian de Guzman (Canada) and
Carlos Rodriguez (Panama) also away on international duty. Rennie has called on
MLS to break during national team action. “It would be nice to have that (break)
and I think it would benefit everyone—especially when it comes down the
stretch,” he said. Notes: The Vancouver Whitecaps will salute the Canadian
womens Olympic soccer team before the game. Sophie Schmidt, Karina LeBlanc and
Emily Zurrer will be among the players honoured. ’ ’ ’
