will now play in front of 70,000. the challenge in a world cup final is to play without fear, but not without care. inside the first ten minutes, english defence lost their shape. gomez put spain ahead. they can score goals like this. gomez again. same old england? no, something different about these boys. when they needed a booster... england get one back. his eighth goal of the tournament, making him its top scorer. look at the celebrations, they were just getting started. now the strange sight of an england team not intimidated, but invigorated. 0ver england team not intimidated, but invigorated. over to fill vodafone manchester city. england in front for the first time in the final. even in their teenage dreams, these players couldn't have imagined a second—half like this. 4—2, five
minutes to go. if you thought it was all over... can get better for england? the party can begin now. purejoy shared earlier this england? the party can begin now. pure joy shared earlier this year by the england under 20 team. evidence ofa the england under 20 team. evidence of a youthful revolution in english football. but these players can't have had a better start. the challenge is to make sure it is just the start. england are the under 17 world cup winners and that is a double as well in this year because the under 20s won the world cup injune and they we re won the world cup injune and they were managed by paul simpson, who has given up his time to talk to us this evening. i know you were watching the match, part of the bbc two commentary team here. what is your reaction, what a game, fighting back from 2—1 down at the end of the first half? it was a united and spirited performance. we have got
ability, we had incredible work ethic, we had fantastic ability. real good goals, we have scored. they stuck together and showed resilience to come through and go two goals down. getting the goal before half—time mate gave them a lift and second—half they were outstanding. they thoroughly deserved the victory and to be so emphatic, they deserved that. deserved the victory and to be so emphatic, they deserved thatlj emphatic, they deserved that.|j can't emphatic, they deserved that.” can't remember enjoying an england match quite as much. you are the under 19 coach, so lots of these players coming through, i bet you can't wait to get your hands on them? we have got a top group of players right through. i was involved with the under 16 is at the turn of the year and some talented lads in there. we have got it going right through the setup. but we are also aware that these are the development teams. what we want to do is make sure we get improvements and development so the 21 develop
and development so the 21 develop and they can build on the semifinal they got to last year in the euros. we wa nt they got to last year in the euros. we want the seniors to be successful. we have done well to qualify from russia, but we feel like we are apologising for qualifying. we have got to put on performances. i will ask you an impossible question, but given the success impossible question, but given the success of the under 17 and under 20 level, how far away are we from similar success at the senior level? we have talked for many years about wanting to be successful in the twe nty20 two wanting to be successful in the twenty20 two world cup. everybody laughed at us when we said that. five years, st george's has been built and we said it was something we needed to help us develop. five yea rs we needed to help us develop. five years end, we have world champions are under 17 years end, we have world champions are underi7 and years end, we have world champions are under 17 and european champions at under 19. it is fair to say the work is going on, but can we get some level of success? it would be fantastic if we can go and win in
russia, but can we get them developed where they will be competing into the latter stages of the competition and then by 2022, the competition and then by 2022, the happy experience. i want success yesterday, i want the senior team to wini yesterday, i want the senior team to win i am unpatriotic england supporter. i don't think we are i million miles away but i think there isa million miles away but i think there is a lot of work to be done. we are 12th in the fifa rankings, we want to be in the top places and stay there. we don'tjust want this year asa there. we don'tjust want this year as a good year, we want to build on it and make sure most of our summers england supporters are watching successful football. it wasn't the most exciting of matches but manchester united have continued their 100% record at old trafford. it was a 1—0 went over totte n ha m. defence switched off, united's anthony martial pounced.
as tim hauge reports. after a hairy afternoon last weekend, this isn't the spurs we are used to. harry kane out injured. evenif used to. harry kane out injured. even if he had been able, openings we re even if he had been able, openings were at a premium. moussa sissoko's strike summing it up. although the quality was lacking there was other elements to keep us entertained, but where were the goals? romelu lukaku did his best and couldn't have gone much closer. but despite the second—half pressure coming from united, they were almost undone by the other superstar, dele alli should have scored. romelu lukaku continue to knock at the door at the other end, but not open it. thatjob would go the way of anthony martial, so would go the way of anthony martial, so often the substitute am so often the scorer this season. the frenchman with a crucial goal. and after the hair dryer at huddersfield, this result, one to
silence the critics. i think we were a little bit by the wind. the wind was in our favour. i think we were a little bit by the wind. the wind was in ourfavour. in the second half, we were getting more adept, attacking players were making more movement. we put the pressure on even better than the first half. we were pressing really well. disappointed because it was amazing. i think the game was even. we move oi'i. i think the game was even. we move on. it is important to lift the players. with a look at the rest of the day's premier league action, here's jessica creighton. adam wilde alongside me. manchester
united, 1—0, big 3—pointerand adam wilde alongside me. manchester united, 1—0, big 3—pointer and they keep pressure on manchester city at the top of the table? after the criticism jose mourinho has faced over the last few weeks, he pulled it out the bag. but they did leave it out the bag. but they did leave it late. anthony martial, getting the victory in the last few moments. it was, as you say, a crucial win. everyone at the club won't be under any illusions how important that victory is. it keeps them in touch with manchester city at the top of the table. 22 games unbeaten at home. it was a vital victory for manchester united. anthony martial coming off the bench again for the fourth time this season and scoring his fourth goal. manchester city, a 3—2 win against west brom. unbeaten in the premier league, who can stop them?m west brom. unbeaten in the premier league, who can stop them? it was more comfortable than the scoreline suggests. but perhaps it wasn't as
co mforta ble suggests. but perhaps it wasn't as comfortable as it should have been. manchester city in control pretty much throughout. they took the lead through leroy sane. but thenjay rodriguez scored for west brom. he did fearfor them as rodriguez scored for west brom. he did fear for them as soon as manchester city scored, but they came back into it. but they had barely stopped celebrating before manchester city were back in front. fernandinho, a fortuitous goal, deflection off the post. manchester city turned it on in the second half. fantastic team goal by raheem sterling. but pep guardiola won't be defending with the defending. poor defending with the defending. poor defending from manchester city made for a nervous last couple of minutes. this is what pep guardiola had to say. we weren't panicking at 1—1, we went panicking at 3—2. congratulations.
they had three chances and scored two goals. we had so many clear chances and scored just three. but thatis chances and scored just three. but that is football. credit for water we st that is football. credit for water west brom did. we did it in a difficult stadium. it is always complicated here at west brom. i am so complicated here at west brom. i am so pleased. brillant when the liverpool. everyone was asking, can they do it again against the big team. but they can't? it probably was too much to do it again, just a week later. it was billed as the battle of the best friends. david wagoner, huddersfield manager, againstjuergen klopp, best friends in opposing dugouts. 0ne manager, againstjuergen klopp, best friends in opposing dugouts. one was the best man at the wedding and the other is godfather to one of the children. that is how close they are. liverpool missed a penalty in
the first half, but then they had a sound 3—0 victory at anfield. juergen klopp planted a kiss on the cheek of david wagner at half—time. no love lost between those two. you have to be successful. we are still in a good way. the football we played, we played without mane. it is difficult, but we still played good football and 0k, it was enough today. we always take the situation as it is. we are ambitious, we want to be successful, really, really and we have to work for it. we are disappointed because we have shown a great effort. very good attitude. but the liverpool came
back. they created more chances and of course they deserved the result. asi of course they deserved the result. as i said, some very good moments in the first 55, 60 minutes that we had. liverpool and their three match winless run. has been chaotic faso, there was a protest at their recent agm at the way the club is being run. but on the pitch, fourth win in a row in all competitions? it has never been plain sailing for arsenal over recent seasons. this is arsene wenger‘s 800th premier league match in charge. 0nly sir alex ferguson has been in charge for more premier league games. it is a staggering achievement. sam clucas but swansea ahead. that was totally against the run of play. arsenal did eventually come good, goals from classic and
aaron ramsey in the second half gave them a 2—1 win. and you swansea had only conceded one goal away from home since the start of the season so it would be tight defensively. in the first half, the pace of game was not sharp enough, passing was good, but not penetrative enough. we need to up the tempoa penetrative enough. we need to up the tempo a little bit and change quicker. the second half was much better. we will play other games at that level and win them. it is a frustrating time in terms of the results. i saw some good things in oui’ results. i saw some good things in our performance. not a bad performance. some of our games recently, we have not performed well and we have lost. we can draw some positives from back, come to a big round, gave them a tough game and now we have an important game at home. we need to turn it around at home. arsenal playing well i getting the
results. let's have a look at the results. let's have a look at the results from the premier league. action packed, the i—0 results from the premier league. action packed, the 1—0 win for manchester united keeping pressure on manchester city. the other matches crystal palace against west ham. late, late drama against crystal palace for west ham. west ham conceding a very late goal in the sixth minute of injury time by wilfried zaha. the sixth minute of injury time by wilfried za ha. wilfried the sixth minute of injury time by wilfried zaha. wilfried zaha, loved by the fans, after that goal, i imagine the fans will be naming their children after him? you saw their children after him? you saw the contrasting emotions at the end of that match. slaven bilic has been under pressure, few managers in the premier league under as much pressure as he has. he must have thought they had victory. seventh minute of injury time, crystal palace got the equaliser through wilfried zaha. palace got the equaliser through wilfried za ha. roy palace got the equaliser through wilfried zaha. roy hodgson ecstatic on the touchline. slaven bilic,
looked thoroughly dejected, hands in pockets, shaking his head. he must have felt like a huge defeat. another game to mention, watford against stoke. good win for stoke, they have been in trouble recently. watford, good form seems to have run out. darren fletcher gave stoke are very good away win. the latest match, bournemouth against chelsea. chelsea are 1—0 up after a goalfrom adam hazzard. chelsea are 1—0 up after a goalfrom adam hazza rd. they chelsea are 1—0 up after a goalfrom adam hazzard. they were fifth going into this match but it should put them into the champions league places if they can hold onto those three points. hazard putting chelsea 1-0 three points. hazard putting chelsea 1—0 up against bournemouth. let's look at the premier league table and what it has done. manchester city sitting pretty at the top. manchester united keeping the pressure up. arsenal, a good win for them, adam? yes, important for manchester united to stay in touch
with manchester city at the top. arsenal, up to fifth. we will see what happens with chelsea, their game is ongoing at the bottom. crystal palace still rock bottom, they would have been, whatever happened today. but a good draw for them. bournemouth looking like they are heading towards another defeat so are heading towards another defeat so they are still deep in trouble. they are, let's take a look at the fixtures we have coming up tomorrow, sunday and on monday. we have brighter against southampton, leicester against everton will be interesting. head to head against the new bosses. we have the south coast derby so that will be important. and as you say, two new managers involved at leicester city tomorrow. it will be exciting to see how both get on in their first premier league game in charge. 0n monday, burnley against newcastle. looking forward to that. you are up today, any more football for us?
yes, hull city taking on nottingham forest. it is the visitors enjoying the better of things. forrest leading i—0 banks to kieran dowell‘s g. sheffield wednesday were held by yorkshire neighbours barnsley. there were wins for ipswich, derby and brentford. second placed wolves suffered a surprise 2—1 loss at qpr while there were also wins for middlesbrough and bristol city. the other matches finished as draws. graeme murty‘s second spell as rangers caretaker manager got off to an excellent start with a 3—1 win at hearts. it was the edinburgh side who took the lead, a free—kick from the former rangers striker kyle lafferty, who made a point of not celebrating. but kenny miller had a point to prove after being dropped by sacked rangers boss pedro caixinha — he scored two and set up their third — that puts them 3rd in the table. in the three o'clock kick—offs in the scottish premiership aberdeen beat ross county 2—1. leaders celtic were surprisingly
held at home to kilmarnock. there were also wins for hamilton, partick thistle and and hibernian. it's shaping up to be a big weekend for british sport, in football, boxing, even rally driving — we'll get to that later. also lewis hamilton could become the most successful british fi driver tomorrow, if he wraps up a fourth world title. fortunately for him he only needs to finish fifth to do that. hamilton was pipped for the top spot on the timesheets in final practice by max verstappen. the red bull driver wasjust seven hundredths of a second quicker than hamilton though. the briton's only rival for the championship sebastian vettel was third quickest just a tenth of a second off the pace. all looking good the lewis hamilton ahead of the mexican grand prix tomorrow. anthonyjoshua is just hours away now from the defence of his ibf and wba world titles against the stand—in challenger, carlos takam. 70,000 people are expected at the principality stadium in cardiff and among them will be our reporter
alex gulrajani. alex are their fans there already, it is said to be a huge event in cardiff? it is. good evening. the fa ns cardiff? it is. good evening. the fans have been streaming in trying to get warm, it is cold in cardiff. hopefully it will be warmer inside the principality stadium. the roof will be closed and it will be the largest attended indoor fight of all time. it is the kind of numbers anthonyjoshua does time. it is the kind of numbers anthony joshua does now. time. it is the kind of numbers anthonyjoshua does now. 90,000 saw him beat klitschko at wembley six months ago and another bumper crowd here in the welsh capital. mike costello joins us live. what can we expect from anthonyjoshua versus carlos ta ka m expect from anthonyjoshua versus carlos takam tonight? it is like a cup finaland carlos takam tonight? it is like a cup final and must pay. the crowd filtering into what is predicted to be this world record attendance. the
british public have got behind this fight. judging by the many accents around town, there is a broad section of the public got behind anthonyjoshua. i was in this stadium ten years ago when joe calzaghe four. conditions were more than manageable in terms of the weather. he said then the crowd becomes like a heavy force in your favour and that is what anthony joshua is going to feel. he is the favourite and is expected to win. he should win if he is going where he says he is, in terms of creating a legacy. but here we have, in prospect, a 70,000 attendance for a big fight. whatever the personality and the title at stake, it is very rare at any time in the world of boxing. what of carla takam, only 12 days notice for this fight. it is not rare in the world boxing to have late call ups, but a new experience forjoshua? yes, he's dealing with
the situation as well as the opponent. but he couldn't be more relaxed and confident. his main aim is to win all four belts. he has two, the wba, the ibf, no heavyweight in history in the three decades since four belts have been available has ever held them all simultaneously. klitschko, evander holyfield and lennox lewis have helped free, no man has ever held all four. joshua can lose more fight than when. the prospect of going on to unify the title is lost if he doesn't win. he has got to take this chance tonight to continue to build his reputation and his record. thank you thejoining us. records his reputation and his record. thank you the joining us. records falling everywhere and hopefully anthony joshua things, not him and carlos ba cca joshua things, not him and carlos bacca macro will fall tonight. we can find out about ten o'clock. wales' rugby league side have suffered their record
world cup defeat at the hands of papua new guinea this morning. the joint hosts scored 10 tries in their 50—6 victory — a thoroughly dominant performance. wales haven't won at the world cup since 2000. only the winners of pool c, which also features ireland, will qualify for the quarter—finals. caroline wozniacki is through to the final of the end of season world tour finals. the world number 6, beat the third seed karolina pliskova, 7—6, 6—3 after an impressive performance, in their semi final this morning. wozniacki will meet venus williams — who is the oldest ever finalist at the age of 37 — she beating caroline garcia in three sets. and roger federer breezed past belgium's david goffin 6—1, 6—2 to make it to the final of the swiss indoors — if he wins, it'll be the eighth time he's won the tournament in basel. england's cricketers have flown to australia today for the winter ashes series. having lost the first two. the third
get underwayjust having lost the first two. the third get underway just after having lost the first two. the third get underwayjust after midnight our time and england can ill afford another loss. though the 2017 women's ashes are less tha n though the 2017 women's ashes are less than a week old, england's aspirations of regaining the trophy have been severely damaged. two defeats from the opening international ‘s has left mark robinson and his coaching team with much to ponder. england are world champions but acknowledged they have become the team others are desperate to beat. hostility on the field has been substituted with partisan campaign of it. it is hard to wrestle a title back, but we are confident. it will be tough, but we're focusing on tomorrow and what we're focusing on tomorrow and what we can do about it. not moping on what has gone and we are positive
and the girls are working hard and i can't question their fight or their ability to work hard and their desire to put this right. australia will be feeling on their way to not just retaining the ashes but proving they call the world's best this by england's world cup win. the team is ina england's world cup win. the team is in a really good place. but you never want to be comfortable. we have spoken about the past two matches and how we want to play and the areas we want to prove. —— improve. it is a great position to being, england are very good team i don't think we want to be too comfortable. england have 12 points to play for and they know australia require eight to retain the ashes. they want to go out and show the quality and fighting spirit that saw them to the world cup triumph in july. that's all from sportsday.
there'll be more sport here on bbc news throughout the evening. there wasn't as much sunshine is down under but we did manage to break up the cloud here and there and it lifted the temperature is above average for the time of year. in twickenham and in shropshire. we saw some sunshine at times. mainly sheltered by the welsh hills, hoping to break up this cloud that has been feeding in across the uk. a lot of cloud around. the picture looks very different for tomorrow. the cloud has been drawn in by mild air and gusty, westerly winds as well. that will change as the clocks change, the wind direction changes and we will draw down the air from the arctic and it comes in behind that whether from there. it is an area of
cloud syncing southwards overnight and behind that, the wind direction changes so we draw down clearer skies. where we keep the weather front, cloud and drizzle across england and wales it will be milder thanit england and wales it will be milder than it will be north across northern england and scotland where we have clearer skies. this cloud in the south and south—west and bits of drizzle eventually fades away from devon and cornwall. good spells of sunshine around on sunday. showers coming in across northern scotland, feeding down the north sea coasts. it will feel cold because it is here we have the strongest wind. temperatures struggling to make double figures in scotland. not about further south and west. the winds will become lighter overnight because high pressure will build in across the uk. stronger winds getting pushed away. with light winds and clear skies, it points to a cold night. this is the temperatures that we are expecting in the countryside by the time we get to monday morning. a touch of ground frost quite widely, not seen
much of that this month at all, so a change on the way for monday morning. gradually as we head into next week, it will be turning milder and we will see the westerly wind returning and i will blow in more cloud and some rain, mainly in the north—west of the uk. not much rain around on monday after the frosty start, we will have some sunshine. it will cloud over more from the north—west and we will see outbreaks of rain arriving to the day as well. given the cold start and this cloud coming in over the top, it will be a chilly day and temperatures struggling to make nine or 10 degrees. the westerly wind strength is during tuesday and we will see more cloud and more rain again in the north—west. this is bbc news.
the headlines at 7pm: a call for peaceful resistance against direct rule from madrid — by the deposed leader of catalonia. it comes as thousands take part in rallies in spain's capital madrid, in favour of unity with catalonia. jeremy corbyn demands that mps who sexually abuse or harass women are held to account — and appeals for victims to come forward. this needs to be the turning point. any members of parliament who engage in this sort of behaviour must be held to account. earlier, the environment secretary, michael gove, apologised ‘unreservedly‘ for an on—air joke about disgraced hollywood producer, harvey weinstein. compulsory drug testing on board royal navy submarines is ordered — after nine crew members are dismissed for reportedly using cocaine.
