MANCHESTER, England -- Gareth Southgates four-game spell as Englands interim manager will end at full time of Tuesdays international friendly against Spain at Wembley Stadium. Air Vapormax Canada .Whatever fate befalls Southgate -- and the likelihood is hell soon be handed the job on a full-time basis -- he has already made a significant imprint on the team.One of the key principles Southgate has stamped on the national side in his five weeks temporarily in charge has been an insistence on playing the ball out from the back -- an approach that is slowly pervading the English Premier League but can sometimes be viewed with skepticism by the English public.I want us to be brave with the ball, Southgate said last month in some of his first words in the job. I want to see an England team that is brave in possession of the ball and prepared to take chances, prepared to take?risks in one versus one situations, even though I know they wont always succeed in those moments.In defender John Stones, Southgate has a player who embodies this attitude.Stones is a ball-playing center back who moved to Manchester City in August for 47.5 million pounds (then $62 million), making him the second-most expensive defender in football history. He fit the bill for new City coach Pep Guardiola, who likes his teams to have defenders who are comfortable on the ball and can start attacks from the back.Southgate is similar in that regard and adopted a similar playing style as manager of Englands under-21 squad, so its no wonder he has made Stones the centerpiece of Englands defense in his brief time in charge of the senior team.England hasnt conceded a goal thus far under Southgate, although the opponents have been mediocre at best in Malta, Slovakia and Scotland.Spain will offer a much tougher test. As masters of playing the ball out from the back, the Spanish will also serve as a good example to their England counterparts of how to execute such an approach.Some have even compared the play of the 22-year-old Stones to that of Spain defender Gerard Pique, who will miss Tuesdays game because of an ankle injury.In the 3-0 win over Scotland on Friday, Stones determination to play out from the back saw him give the ball away in a dangerous position early on. He also took perhaps unnecessary risks around the edge of his own box in an attempt to beat Scotlands high press.At the start of the year, Stones -- then playing for Everton -- performed three Cruyff turns around his box while being challenged for the ball in a Premier League match against Tottenham. He earned a free kick and gave a calm down gesture to the fans who were audibly unnerved by Stones risk-taking.Its the only way he knows.Its understandable that people will say things about the way I play, that some people arent going to like me, Stones said last month. But this is how I want to play.Given his style, Stones will always make errors. One of them occurred in a 1-1 draw against Southampton last month when his pass to a teammate at the edge of Citys area was intercepted by Nathan Redmond, who scored.Theres also a concern that when playing for his national team, Stones doesnt have a goalkeeper or the defensive players alongside him with strong enough technique and composure to ensure that playing out from the back is the right optionSouthgate isnt for wavering, though. He believes Stones can have as successful a career as Pique and Germany center backs Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng, and that Stones needs encouragement rather than criticism.For years, weve talked about not being able to play out from the back, Southgate said of the England psyche. If were to be different, if were to progress, then we have to encourage players.What weve got to remember is hes 22. In central defensive terms, its nothing. If we want to have a Hummels, a Boateng, a Pique ... I think hes got the perfect manager (in Guardiola) to work with and to hone, and for all of our defenders, thats what we want to encourage.

They were putting most of their energy into a record-setting offensive display. Former?Kentucky?teammates DeMarcus Cousins and John Wall told reporters on Monday that they have discussed playing together in the NBA as well, although both players want the other to go to their current teams.We talk about it all the time, Wall said of playing in the NBA with Cousins, according to The Washington Post.The storyline came up because Cousins?Kings?played Walls?Wizards?in Washington on Monday. The Wizards defeated the Kings 101-95 in overtime.Before the game, Cousins, when asked whether the two players have discussed an NBA reunion, said: Its come up.Cousins even mentioned former Kentucky teammate Eric Bledsoe in the discussion but said that if it happens, he wants Bledsoe, currently with the Phoenix Suns, and Wall to be with him in Sacramento.Theyre going to all come to Sac. Come to Sac! ... [Wall] wants me [in D.C.], Cousins said. Eric want us in Phoenix. ... Play with John and Eric again, you never know what will happen. Its the NBA, so hopefully one day hell be in a Sacramento uniiform. Vapormax Mens Canada. Wall, Cousins and Bledsoe played together at Kentucky for one season (2009-10) before leaving for the NBA draft, where all three players were first-round selections.Wall, like Cousins, would like his former teammate to join him in Washington if a reunion is workable in the future.Just trying to figure out whats going to happen, you know what I mean? Wall said, according to the Post. [Cousins] loves where hes at and I love where Im at, so whatever we feel like gives us the best opportunity to win -- I know what our [team] is here and what I want to do here. And its something I keep in my mind.If the players are to be teammates in the NBA, it will have to wait until the end of next season, unless a trade happens. Cousins is under contract with the Kings through the 2017-18 season. Both Wall and Bledsoe are under contract with their teams through 2018-19. ' ' '
