BEIJING nike shox r4 tilbud , March 3 (Xinhua) -- After splashing out close to 300 million US dollars during the winter transfer window, the Chinese Super League (CSL) will kick off its new season on Friday with five-time defending champion Guangzhou Evergrande taking on Hebei China Fortune.

The CSL has drawn global attention over the past months, snapping up big name footballers with the most money in the international transfer market. It is expected that the splurge will help improve the level of the CSL and may change the hierarchy in the new season.

Guangzhou Evergrande may find it is difficult to win a consecutive sixth CSL title, as many other teams have landed world-class recruits ahead of the new season. The 42-million-euro's signing of Jackson Martinez has not repayed yet as Guangzhou suffered a worst start in the Asian Champions League with a draw and a loss in two matches.

Jiangsu Suning is tipped as the No. 1 challenger. The Nanjing-based club lavished a record 50 million euros (about 54 million US dollars) to buy Brazilian star Alex Teixeira, only days after its 28-million-euro (about 30 million US dollars) purchase of Ramires from Chelsea.

Zhang Jindong, president of Suning Commerce Group which owns Jiangsu Suning nike shox avenue tilbud , said last month bluntly that he hopes his investment can draw more attention from the public.

""We think it is worth spending the money if it can improve the Chinese football,"" he said. ""If we can build the foundation well, I am sure we can realize our goal to win the Chinese Super League in three years, and lift the AFC Champions League trophy in five years.""

The winter transfer window also saw CSL runner-up Shanghai SIPG acquire Brazilian striker Elkeson de Oliveira Cardoso with 18.5 million euros (about 20.1 million euros) in January from Guangzhou while Shandong Luneng and Beijing Guoan respectively sign Brazil center-back Gil and Turkey international Burak Yilmaz.

Some newcomers joined on the big-spending bandwagon as well. Hebei China Fortune recruited Argentine forward Ezequiel Lavezzi, the world's fifth most expensive soccer player, with a weekly salary of 400 nike shox 807 tilbud ,000 pounds (about 563,000 US dollars).

However, opinions vary on whether the huge investment and foreign talent are enough to boost the standard of the national team. Some even argue that expensive imports would impede the development of Chinese soccer.

A proof is that the Chinese men's national team is on the verge of elimination from the 2018 World Cup. China, third in its qualifying group behind Qatar and Hong Kong, China, faces the Maldives at home on March 24 and Qatar on March 29. It needs to win both games to keep alive its hopes of qualifying.

A black U.S. military veteran of the Afghan war who said he wanted to ""kill white people"" apparently acted alone in a sniper attack that killed five police officers at a protest in Dallas decrying police shootings of black men nike shox current tilbud , officials said on Friday.

Seven other police officers and two civilians were wounded in the ambush in downtown Dallas on Thursday night, officials said. Police killed the gunman, identified by authorities as 25-year-old Micah Johnson, with a bomb-carrying robot after cornering him in a parking garage, ending an hours-long standoff.

A search of Johnson's home in the nearby suburb of Mesquite found ""bomb-making materials, ballistic vests nike shox tlx tilbud , rifles, ammunition and a personal journal of combat tactics,"" Dallas police said in a report on Friday. Police said Johnson had no previous criminal history.

On Thursday night, the sound of gunfire sent a panicked crowd of hundreds of protesters screaming and running for their lives near the end of an otherwise peaceful march to protest police killings of two black men this week in Minnesota and Louisiana. Police officers patrolling the Dallas demonstration at the time believed they were under attack by several gunmen.

By late afternoon on Friday, however, investigators had concluded that Johnson nike shox oz d herre tilbud , armed with a rifle, was the lone gunman.

“At this time, there appears to have been one gunman, with no known links to or inspiration from any international terrorist organisation,” U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told reporters in New York.

At a news conference in Dallas, the city's mayor nike shox oz d herre , Michael Rawlings, said the shooting ""came from one building at different levels from this suspect.""

Three other people were detained by police, but authorities have not publicly linked them to the shootings. Still, officials said they were looking for evidence of any possible co-conspirators.

The ambush marked the highest death toll for U.S. police in the line duty from a single event since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.


The attack was certain to complicate rising tensions between minority communities and law enforcement following a string of high-profile killings of unarmed black men at the hands of police across the country over the past two years nike shox oz d dame tilbud , giving rise to the Black Lives Matter protest movement.

The latest violence, which occurred as one such rally was coming to a quiet end, was especially devastating for the people of Dallas, a city that struggled for decades to heal from the scars left by the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy, blocks away in Dealey Plaza.

Dallas Police Chief David Brown called Thursday's incident ""a well-planned, well-thought-out nike shox oz d dame , evil tragedy."" He added, ""We are determined to not let this person steal this democracy from us.""

During lengthy negotiations with police, the gunman told police he was angry about the Louisiana and Minnesota killings, Brown told reporters.

""The suspect said he was upset at white people. The suspect stated that he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers,"" said Brown nike shox oz d danmark , who is African-American.
