6:32 pm
the extra spots but we will have 16 groups of the free with the top two entering knockout phases. teams reaching the final still only play seven matches. critics by the european club association said the change has got no sporting merit. the fifa president gianni infantino spoke to or sports news correspondent richard conway. it isa it is a competition that makes the world stand still and focus on an event. if we look at how football has evolved, we can see the quality of football has become higher and higher all over the world. many other teams could make it to the world cup. and i believe that quality will raise with an expanded
6:33 pm
world cup goes many more countries and teams will have the chance to qualify. so they will invest. the group winner will have to play the group winner will have to play the group runner—up in a round of 32 and that means that every match is decisive. that is not the case in the groups of four. penalties could be looked at to make sure that there is no draw at the end of the game. that has yet to be discussed. is this for sporting reasons or because this for sporting reasons or because this is a money and power grab by fifa and using the world cup is that mechanism. we want to do something for football, you have mechanism. we want to do something forfootball, you have got mechanism. we want to do something for football, you have got to look at the finances, because if it is loss—making you cannot invest money in football. this was the first element. so we presented for different formats and each of them
6:34 pm
had advantages in terms of the financial situation and that means we are in a comfortable situation to ta ke we are in a comfortable situation to take a decision simply based on the sporting merit. well we have some football tonight. the first of the football league semi cup final. jose mourinho has promised to put out a strong team at old trafford tonight against hull city. he will be up against hull city. he will be up against marcus silva. the semifinal is also a big occasion and maybe for them it is more important the match that they have to play three days later in the premier league. we play against liverpool and it is a big match for us but we want to be in the final. so we're going to face this hull city match with everything we have all the power we have, because we know the second leg is
6:35 pm
away so in the first leg we should do something to give us an advantage. jose mourinho is jose mourinho and for us it is fantastic to have a couple of portuguese coaches tomorrow. we play against a big team. it is a tough game for us. we will see what happens. it is good to see jose mourinho tomorrow, i'm sure we will talk a bit. but we are opponents, he is trying to win and i will do the same. more now on that match with mark edmondson at old trafford. manchester united are likely to field a strong team tonight, jose mourinho is determined tonight, jose mourinho is determined to get to the english football league final and the possibility of a tantalising draw at wembley
6:36 pm
against the old rivals, liverpool. the involvement of it removed which, valencia and paul pogba has already been confirmed by jose valencia and paul pogba has already been confirmed byjose mourinho but what about wayne rooney, of course he equalled the record set by sir bobby charlton, at the weekend. who would bet against him trying to grab the record with a goal tonight if he gets a start? probably cheered on most likely by sir bobby charlton himself. and you can follow that match tonight on 5 live sport. well our reporter has joined me and
6:37 pm
lord coe is said to have received information back in 2015 and he has said that he passed them straight on to the ethics committee. but mps wa nt to to the ethics committee. but mps want to grill lord coe again. the hearing today centred on an e—mail sentin hearing today centred on an e—mail sent in 2014 containing allegations about the former marathon runner against some senior officials at the iaaf. at the time details had been sent to the ethics committee but dave bra ilsford sent to the ethics committee but dave brailsford said he approached lord coe because he felt he would not sweep it under the carpet. he said he spoke to lord coe on the phone and he said he did not know about the ongoing investigation. lord coe always acknowledged receiving the details but he said he did not open e—mail because he said he thought it was a matter for the
6:38 pm
ethics committee. two weeks before the documentary was aired, lord coe said he was not aware of any of this until the documentary came out but bradford said that they did speak about it. as regards him not opening the e—mail, he was asked about that. the penalties are being imposed on russia and it was recognised there was state—sponsored doping in sport. but have we had any response from lord coe or the iaaf? but have we had any response from lord coe or the imf? well be iaaf put upa lord coe or the imf? well be iaaf put up a statement saying the evidence that came out today was not new and lord coe has nothing more to add really. from the tone of the e—mail suggests he has real
6:39 pm
intention to speak to the committee again. the interesting part is because he is a lord, i do not think they can force him to appear before they can force him to appear before the committee again. but they can put out information which the government can act upon. so whether he chooses to answer questions in parliament or with journalists remains to be seen. sir dave b ra ilsfo rd remains to be seen. sir dave brailsford said the head of uk anti—doping david kenworthy has undermined the investigation into wrongdoing at team sky. his evidence toa wrongdoing at team sky. his evidence to a select committee last month explaining the contents of a package delivered to sir bradley wiggins after race was described as extraordinary by kenworthy. b ra ilsfo rd extraordinary by kenworthy. brailsford who is at the team training gap at the moment said they can be trusted 100%. he spoke to andrew swift. most fair—minded people in the uk would accept that if there is any issue and there is
6:40 pm
an authority which is the right place to get the bottom of something, and it is a diligent process and we trust and respect that and we are in the middle of that and we are in the middle of that and we are in the middle of that and there is an open investigation still ongoing, for the chair of the organisation to discuss the actual contents of the investigation whilst it is live and open is extraordinary in my mind. but some people now have lost trust in team sky because it has been handled badly? there's a difference between handling and active wrongdoing. there might be a pr issue and i think that is a separate thing. chris froome when he was asked whether he still supported you on friday he did not give his explicit backing, did that disappoint you and doesn't undermine your readership? he was put in a difficult situation by the questions he was asked. we're not talking about performance here and in many respects he does not need to be put
6:41 pm
in that situation. those questions are not for him to answer but for me. i was saddened by the fact that especially with bradley wiggins retiring, the fact that this has cast a cloud over his achievements and those of team sky? it is reg retta ble. and those of team sky? it is regrettable. but equally i think over the test of time that is the key thing and overtime he will continue to perform at the highest level and continue to give people a reason to get behind team sky and feel proud of our achievements. kempton park is to be closed after almost 100 years of racing to make way for a housing project. many people in racing would say kempton
6:42 pm
park has had a horse racing since the 1870s and it is part of the fabric of the sport in the uk. every boxing day the king george is run their and it has been won in the past by great names injump racing. kauto star for example in recent yea rs. kauto star for example in recent years. so why get rid of it, it is one of the great occasions in jump racing. 0n the other hand thejockey clu b racing. 0n the other hand thejockey club who own the race was —— the racecourse, with say we need the money for the greater good of the sport. if we can get money from selling houses that could be reinvested in a modern all—weather track in newmarket and which king george could be moved just a few miles down the road to sandown. but in essence is the conflict of points of view. and i suppose different points of view and reaction to this news as well today. we have clive smith, the owner of kauto star so linked to kempton park, he spoke
6:43 pm
today of his shock and that it is a great shame and what would they do with the statue of kauto star. but in contrast the chair of the newmarket trainers federation saying it isa newmarket trainers federation saying it is a marvellous initiative and just what newmarket needs. so as ever there are winners and losers. but nothing will happen before 2021 and the jockey but nothing will happen before 2021 and thejockey club needs at least £100 million from the sale of kempton park before anything else happens. that is it, i'm back throughout the evening with updates. for now, goodbye. the headlines. jeremy corbyn has told supporters he is not wedded to the idea of keeping freedom of movement for eu citizens during
6:44 pm
brexit negotiations. police in york have named the child found badly injured yesterday and who later died as seven—year—old katie ruff commission was discovered in the woodthorpe area. a 15—year—old girl has been questioned for the documents went to the bbc show 47% rise in psychiatric attendances at accident and emergency department in england over the past four years. and a look at the markets, this is how the ftse ended the day in london and the dax in frankfurt. the dow and the dax in frankfurt. the dow and nasdaq also doing well in the united states. supermarket chain morrisons has recorded a strong period, with like—for—like sales rising by almost 396 of top
6:45 pm
mince pies baked in store, to show stopping turkey we like to treat ourselves at christmas. at morrisons, they lured shoppers in and they served up some great results.
