MIAMI (AP) — FIFA has agreed to make public its vote on the host for the 2023 Women’s World Cup.The organization’s decision-making body is becoming more transparent after concerns were raised last month that the women’s tournament wouldn’t fully follow the new voting process for the men’s World Cup.The United States Julie Ertz Jersey , Canada and Mexico were chosen last year to host the 2026 World Cup. The votes by the FIFA Congress of all member associations were published. Previously, the decisions were taken in private by the scandal-discredited FIFA executive committee, which was renamed the FIFA Council in 2016.But FIFA announced last month that its 37-person council would still decide on the destination of the 2023 Women’s World Cup, with no mention of votes being publicly declared.Now, FIFA has said following a meeting in Miami that after the council makes its decision in March 2020, the “result of each ballot and related votes of each member” will be “open and made public.”It could be the most hotly contested bidding process for the tournament https://www.thetopsoccer.com/uswnt/ashlyn-harris-jersey , which was first staged in 1991. Australia, Colombia, Japan and South Africa have been exploring bids. South Korea submitted a proposal to North Korea to jointly bid.FIFA asked countries interested in bidding to do so by Friday, but it has yet to disclose who made submissions. Bidders have until April 16 to complete their bidding registrations, and bid books must be submitted by Oct. 4. BERLIN (AP) — Stung by recent criticism, Bayern Munich delivered a clear statement of intent on Saturday after reclaiming top spot in the Bundesliga with a 5-0 thrashing of former leader Borussia Dortmund.Bayern leads Dortmund by one point with six rounds remaining.“I’ve no explanation for it Christen Press Jersey ,” Dortmund captain Marco Reus said.Two former Dortmund players, Mats Hummels and Robert Lewandowski, set Bayern back on track toward a record-extending seventh straight title — a remarkable turnaround considering the side was nine points behind Dortmund earlier in the season.After temporarily losing the lead in a 1-1 league draw at Freiburg last weekend, before a close shave to second-division Heidenheim in the German Cup on Wednesday, Bayern’s pride was hurt.“I’m particularly pleased because many people really criticized the team harshly,” Bayern coach Niko Kovac said.The home side seized the initiative from the start Carli Lloyd Jersey , forcing a corner in the first minute and appealing for a penalty early on when Lewandowski went down under pressure from Abdou Diallo. Referee Manuel Graefe waved play on.Mahmoud Dahoud struck the outside of the post with Dortmund’s first chance on a counterattack in the sixth minute. He should have scored – and it was the only chance.Hummels opened the scoring with a header to a corner in the 10th minute for the former Dortmund captain’s first league goal of the season.A mistake from the 19-year-old Dan-Axel Zagadou gifted Lewandowski his 200th goal in the league seven minutes later. The Dortmund defender struck Lewandowski with an attempted pass and the Bayern forward – who previously played for Dortmund – gratefully lifted the ball over Roman Buerki before scoring in off the right post.Bayern kept pushing and deservedly scored again through Javi Martinez in the 41st, two minutes before Serge Gnabry made it 4-0 to have club president Uli Hoeness waving his fists in triumph in the stands.The second half was much quieter than the first and Lewandowski wrapped it up with his 21st goal of the season in the 89th.“That was a lesson for us, a very, very difficult game for us,” Dortmund coach Lucien Favre said. “Bayern was much better, they played with much more tempo.”LATE DRAMALuka Jovic scored in the ninth minute of stoppage time for Eintracht Frankfurt to consolidate its Champions League qualification place with a 2-1 win at Schalke.The Serbian striker held his nerve to score despite furious protests from the home side over a decision made through VAR to award the spot kick for hand ball.Schalke coach Huub Stevens pushed his complaining players away from referee Sascha Stegemann and his team of assistants after the final whistle https://www.thetopsoccer.com/uswnt/tobin-heath-jersey , and then turned to berate them himself.“I don’t want to say too much. I am for VAR but as a coach you can’t say everything. Otherwise you can be punished,” Stevens said.The result leaves Schalke just five points clear of Stuttgart in the relegation playoff spot with six rounds left.Frankfurt moved five points clear of fifth-placed Borussia Moenchengladbach, which hosts Werder Bremen on Sunday.CUNHA STARS FOR LEIPZIGMatheus Cunha scored a brilliant individual goal to seal Leipzig’s 4-2 win at Bayer Leverkusen and consolidate third place.The Brazilian forward produced a pirouette reminiscent of France great Zinedine Zidane’s to elude Mitchell Weiser, and then lifted the ball over goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky to score in the 83rd minute.Stuttgart drew with Nuremberg 1-1, helped by a VAR decision that appeared to overlook the offside-positioned Anastasios Donis in the build-up.Nuremberg remained second from bottom, three points ahead of Hannover Alex Morgan Jersey , which lost 3-1 at Wolfsburg.Also, Hertha Berlin lost 2-1 at home to promoted Fortuna Duesseldorf.
