BERLIN -- Bayern Munich salvaged a late 2-0 win at Schalke in the Bundesliga on Friday, maintaining new coach Carlo Ancelottis winning start when it seemed the side was about to drop points. NFL Jerseys Wholesale .Minutes after missing an open net from two meters, Robert Lewandowski finally scored in the 81st minute, shooting to the top left corner after being set up by a fine pass from Javi Martinez.The Poland striker set up substitute Joshua Kimmich to seal the result in injury time, with Ancelottis other substitutes -- Arturo Vidal and Douglas Costa -- both involved in the buildup.We knew we had to be patient, said Lewandowski, who took his goal-tally to four from two games. That was a very important win.Schalke, which was hoping to bounce back from its opening-weekend defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt, had taken the game to the defending champion, snapping at the visitors heels, winning challenges and forcing mistakes.Its bitter for us, said Schalke coach Markus Weinzierl, who added that he was nevertheless encouraged by his sides performance.Ukraine winger Yevhen Konoplyanka and French midfielder Benjamin Stambouli started for their Schalke debuts, while new signings Nabil Bentaleb and Abdul Rahman Baba also impressed for the home side.Bayerns 19-year-old Renato Sanches, who helped Portugal win the European Championship, made his Bundesliga debut but the visitors had a familiar name to thank for their second win from two games.---SCHALKE 0-2 BAYERN MUNICHSchalke had the games first big chance when David Alaba blocked Leon Goretzkas header almost off the line, before Konoplyanka was deflected wide for a corner, and Goretzka went close again.Lewandowski should have put away Bayerns first big chance minutes later, turning the ball wide after being set up by Thomas Mueller.But the home side was better and might have gone ahead in the 38th, when Alaba and Manuel Neuer -- back at his old club -- could only scramble the ball away from the lurking Klaas Jan Huntelaar after Konoplyanka pulled it back thanks to a great run from Baba.Huntelaar rattled the crossbar early in the second half, when Neuer got a fingertip to the ball.Ancelotti reacted to Schalkes growing confidence by bringing on Vidal and Costa for Xabi Alonso and Franck Ribery, respectively.Costa fired over in the 72nd before Lewandowski missed the open net. The Poland striker had no time to react to Alabas cross and the ball ricocheted over.Just when it looked like the visitors would have to settle for a point, Lewandowski struck then set up Kimmich to gather all three. Wholesale China Jerseys .

Sebastian Vettel says Ferrari must not look for excuses to explain its lacklustre performance at the British Grand Prix.Vettel finished ninth at Silverstone after starting 11th due to a five-place grid penalty for a gearbox change. It was the second race in a row that Red Bull finished ahead of Ferrari, but Vettel said there is no point making excuses for Ferraris dip in form.We want to win, so I dont really care whats going on behind, he said. As long as they stay behind, I think it was arguably a strong weekend for them and not so strong for us. Its probably the only race this year where in terms of race pace we werent able to fight them and beat them. But Im pretty confident that things will look different again in two weeks.Thats not an excuse, we had a bad weekend and we need to make sure we address this and we take actions and move forward, understand why we struggled more than other people. Generally everyone is improving -- we are, other people are -- but I think this weekend was a step back for us in terms of competitivenesss, not necessarily a big step up for other people. Jerseys From China. ettel is hoping the Ferrari is better suited to the Hungaroring, which hosts next weekends Hungarian Grand Prix.Yeah I think its a completely different track, different conditions. Usually wherever Formula One goes the sun is shining but it seems that this year it hasnt really been very warm, which is nice when you drive - you dont sweat so much - but thats not why we go racing. I think we have to take into account that we might sweat and its actually a nice feeling when you have to work hard.I think its a completely different track but first of all theres a lot of things we need to learn from this weekend. We failed two gearboxes - one on Friday, one on Saturday - on my car. I think we recovered on qualifying but obviously lost out quite a lot of performance in todays race with the conditions we faced. So theres a lot of stuff to understand. ' ' '
