MONTREAL - The Montreal Impact didnt even need to step on the field to clinch a spot in the CONCACAF Champions League quarter-finals. Joffrey Lupul Jersey .The idle Impact advanced to the Champions League knockout stage late Wednesday night after the New York Red Bulls failed to earn a victory in El Salvador in Group-3 action. The 0-0 draw between the Red Bulls and C.D. FAS in Central America means New York cannot catch Montreal in the standings, thus guaranteeing the Impact top spot in the three-team group.As a result, Montreals Olympic Stadium will be awash with blue and white when the Impact play a quarter-final match at home next February, the teams first in six years.To qualify without having to play the last group game shows how much effort we put into it, and the types of performances we put in, said Jack McInerney on Thursday. Its great exposure for the club. Goals were reached last night.Montreal opened its 2014-15 CCL campaign with back-to-back one-goal victories against FAS a€” 1-0 at Saputo Stadium and 3-2 in San Salvadors Estadio Cuscatlan in August. Last week, the Impact defeated a largely inexperienced Red Bulls side 1-0 at home to take a six-point lead atop the group.New Yorks failure to win on Wednesday helped Montreal partly redeem an embarrassing Major League Soccer season. With the Impact (6-17-6) in last place in the Eastern Conference and eliminated from the MLS playoffs, the teams fans have had little to celebrate this season.The promise of February soccer in the city is the years silver lining.Were in the best eight teams in North America, said Marco Di Vaio, who scored four goals in three matches so far in the CCL group stage. Its a big day for the club. In February, theres a big game in the teams history. Its a historic moment for the city and the fans.Although he was instrumental in getting the club to the quarter-finals, Di Vaio will likely play his final game with the Impact next month, and thus miss Februarys CCL showdown.Last week, the 38-year-old strongly suggested he would return to Italy after his contract with the Impact expires in October regardless of Montreals Champions League aspirations. The teams guaranteed spot in the quarter-final has done little to sway the Italian striker.I cant come back just for two games, said Montreals fourth all-time leading goal scorer. This doesnt change anything. If I come back, it will be for the full year, not just two months.The Impact are returning to the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time since 2009, when the team was eliminated by Mexicos Santos Laguna 5-4 on aggregate. Montreal was still competing in the lower-tier North American Soccer League at time.After beating teams from Honduras and Trinidad and Tobago in the group stage that year, the Impact were sitting pretty after their first quarter-final leg, a 2-0 victory played in front of more than 55,000 fans at the Olympic Stadium.Impact Academy product Maxim Tissot, who was 17 at the time, remembers the game like it was yesterday. He watched from the Big O grandstands as Impact great Eduardo Sebrango scored twice to give Montreal the victory.The atmosphere was something else, said Tissot, who was playing for Montreals farm team, the Trois-Rivieres Attak, at the time. I remember it well. What a game!Two weeks later, Montreal took a one-goal lead into halftime in Torreon, Mexico, before a stunning second-half meltdown sent the Impact tumbling out of the competition.I thought for sure we would win, said Tissot, now 22 years old. For the guys who watched that game, we dont want a repeat of that. We have to move past the quarter-finals this time with that game in mind.Despite already qualifying for the knockout stage, Montreal still has a lot to play for in its last CCL group stage match against New York at Red Bull Arena on Oct. 22.The eight teams that qualify for the quarter-finals will be seeded according to the number of points accumulated in the group stage. The top-four seeded teams will have the benefit of playing their return leg at home, a luxury not afforded to the Impact squad that conceded five goals in Mexico in 2009.The last game still means a lot, said McInerney, who will likely see his playing time on the rise between now and the end of the season. You can miss some big teams in the next round if we go to New York and get a result. Its definitely on our mind right now.With more group-stage matches still to be played, only three other clubs have secured their place in the quarter-finals. D.C. United, Mexicos Pachuca, and Costa Ricas Herediano could face Montreal in late February and early March. And barring final-game collapses, fellow MLS teams Sporting Kansas City and Portland will also clinch a spot in the quarter-final.With travel time in mind, Impact players are already indicating their preference to face a team in the United States.If you have to travel down south, its going to be tough, said McInerney. An MLS team would be ideal for us. But whether we go to Mexico or D.C., its a big opportunity.Added Tissot: Wed be more comfortable with what we know. We may not want to face Mexican teams because theyre so good. But well be ready in any case.Notes: Montreal will play the first leg of its quarter-final either Feb. 24 or Feb. 25. The return leg will be played either March 3 or March 4. a€| Montreal is representing Canada in this edition of the Champions League after winning the Canadian Championship in June. The Impact hoisted the Voyageurs Cup after beating rivals Toronto FC 2-1 on aggregate in the final. Dave Keon Jersey . -- The Chiefs have signed seven players to reserve/future contracts, including running back Joe McKnight, a former fourth-round pick of the New York Jets. Connor Brown Jersey .Y. -- The "for sale" sign is up at the Buffalo Bills with the hiring of financial and legal advisers who may begin talking with prospective buyers within the next month. . James scored 25 points against his former team, leading the energized Heat to a 114-107 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night. Dwyane Wade added 24 points and Chris Bosh had 22 for the Heat, idle since a 90-84 loss Tuesday at Indiana.PEORIA, Ariz. -- The Seattle Mariners have their new closer. Fernando Rodney took part in Seattles first workout for pitchers and catchers Thursday, soon after the reliever signed a two-year contract worth $14 million. Rodney reported to spring training on Wednesday and passed his physical, clearing the way for the Mariners to add him to their 40-man roster and announce his contract. "It feels good to be here," Rodney said. "You guys know my situation. I just try to come in and close the game. I think we have the right guys here." The 36-year-old Rodney was 5-4 with 37 saves and a 3.38 ERA for the Tampa Bay Rays in 2013. He ranked second in the American League in saves and ERA over the past two seasons, with a combined 85 saves and a 1.91 ERA. The Dominican right-hander said three other teams were interested in signing him -- Baltimore, the New York Mets and Cleveland. Rodney has a hhistory with Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon, who was the bullpen coach in Detroit when Rodney played for the Tigers. Johnny Bower Jersey. Rodney said he wasnt surprised that it took until February for him to sign with a team. "I think I got the right (timing) and the right organization," Rodney said. "They were more interested in me, thats why Im here." Tom Wilhelmsen and Danny Farquhar were last seasons closers for Seattle. They combined for 40 saves, with Farquhar replacing the struggling Wilhelmsen in early August. "Were extremely happy to have him and he certainly solidifies the back end of our bullpen," McClendon said. Rodney is known for the way he wears his cap, the bill tilted to one side, and his save celebration in which he shoots an imaginary arrow into the sky. "Great character. The fans in Seattle are going to love him," McClendon said. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
