the. mississippi lazing counter attack from the mexicans maisano made a nifty move them as it is in the box and fired the ball past a helpless mind well knowing that such a scene from mexico dejection for germany. germany got their best chances in the waning minutes first mario gomez heading over the bar from close range and two minutes later yulian brown to marco to ice to go home as but he couldn't flick it past yemo it show up the ball then found its way back to bronze but his straight chin long range shot clipped the post mexico now top group path while germany need to go back to the drawing board. press there was really an onion mitigated disaster for germany what did you make of the performance you know take a page out of you or him in their head coach addressed the media he called it negligent in haphazard i would have to agree because as definitive champions you expect more from them they're known as attorney meant team you know but considering
their form in the friendlies leading up to this tournament they only had one win so it was a kind of a shocking enough say that no one saw this coming. included you know that in it but it was a shock i mean there's only one way to go they have to rebound if they want to repeat what happened in one thousand nine hundred two the last time this happened they rebounded and finished second in the tournament which isn't too shabby let's see if they can the progress moving forward and reclaim that now for a german audience watching this out there any positive takeaway that off in this game well the positives would be there was no lack of trying i am specifically in terms of shots on goal i mean they had twenty six we can see here mario gomez an older up in age striker missed a header and then you know we saw some efforts late in the straights and last stretch of the game there the ball for. the tony crow splits real madrid midfielder could not find paydirt they could meet the side of a barn out there but there was one positive you know and factored in then be known
as a tournament team they've never finished first and fourth in a major termit under your he moves so that's one positive they can say what now germany goalkeeper man on neuer is back on the pitch after a nine month layoff an injury is nine months too soon for i would say so i'm of the opinion yes because you know he hasn't had real active minutes he's only practice we saw the footage you know but i would considering that his left foot was in question he had surgery on his left foot he had to push off his left to make this stop from those i know because i know you know he he threaded the defense right there gets open he jumps over. and fires in the left hand corner my left foot is all i was thinking if i saw this because my bone though is known as superman between the posts clearly mexico had some kryptonite in their boots because they walked away with the i've said so i think it was too early for manuel neuer your he love has some talent on the bench test a game even kevin strap you know so we have to wait and see what happens with ford
but turned quickly to the other day's actions of brazil and switzerland just wrapped up what happened there yeah that was a pretty shocking finish i mean in any event you know and it started off in a defensive blunder you know the swiss headed able to cross right to the feet of philippe coccinea oh by the party did right out the reach of you and somewhere in the twentieth minute he had no chance to stop that. watching ricochet off the post i mean it's pretty much impossible he had to have swings for that but switzerland bounce back after the restart she carries it to quarter clearly into the box steven soba. made it one all actually suba he has played a part in six goals for the switzerland team in all of his six starts so that's an accomplishment shucking have set a felt. maybe brazil didn't get some calls we saw neymar jr complaining a lot on the pitch out there but it was a shocking draw and you you're calling this is a shock so when you mention this
a little bit what went wrong for brazil out there you know just lack of execution i mean you know they were kind of similar in the sense of germany you know there were times in the ball there was no there were no passing lanes open for neymar you just saw a lot of basically it looked like a grapefruit if you come up with a grapefruit you see the orange or the red in the middle that's what it looked like on the pitch out there just switch will impact the middle killing all the passing lanes made it very difficult for brazil to get things going but you know brazil high expectations we have to see if they live up to those and let's check out the results from all of sunday's games now there's that confirmation of germany shock to feet to mexico right there and that's a prize draw between brazil and switzerland elsewhere serbia defeated costa rica one nail that's a wrap up of the latest world cup soccer action cross-hairs in front of you sports thank you so much thank you conservative newcomer even duke a has won
columbia's landmark presidential election two k. was running against former rival rebel and left to vist gustavo petrov with counting almost complete duca has taken around fifty four percent of the vote his victory could have implications for the country's historic peace deal with the former fox rebels the treaty signed in two thousand and sixteen ended the longest civil war in latin america which spanned over five decades. joining me now is g.w. correspondent a family homes out routine who's following the elections for us from bogota ophelia these results came rather quick do we have any details now. well of these results are confirming what we already saw in the surveys this is the second time that the services are right they were right on the first round of elections and yes it is come from that this tendency is not reversible anymore even duke is the new president with about fifty four percent of the votes that's more than ten million votes and he is the most voted candidate in
a column in history after one run when sandals. who only had forty three percent though had a a much of an increase a bigger increase than he ran ducat according to the votes for the first run but it didn't it wasn't enough to win even look it was an unknown politician up until he was hand picked for the senate by a former president he is forty one years old he's a lawyer and he has spent much of his adult life living in the united states he works for the entire american development bank but so far he has not as much political experience as former presidents in this country duke is definitely a political newcomers ofelia we know that the peace deal was one of the central issues of this entire campaign and we know the duke is very much for going as extreme as jailing former fark rebels what does this mean for the country and the
peace deal. yes he wants to he wants former guerrilla leaders to serve very strong jail sentences he's also talking about extraditing them he does not want to see them in politics these are two key issues of the deal and they could if they would do the reverse that would destroy much of the peace deal but we have to say that in its current form it is it is safe for three periods and he could not make major changes but what he can do because he will also have a majority in congress is to further slow down the process into failure by not implementing key parts of the process and by making especially of basis of the the former fighters more disappointed with an agreement that has only ready not been implemented as they wished we see that many of the territories that were former fark territories are now being taken over by. narco traffic and by other
criminal gangs and this is making it very very difficult for them to to further trust the agreement and they could go back to the weapons eventually fairly quickly if you can how are columbians dealing with the implications that this could have for the peace process while many people are scared but as we see with this vote they the majority of colombians are supporting sentences they are not ok with the fact that they are given ten seats in congress by not being voted by the people but they do agree with the fact that colombia is living in much more peace than it was before we hope this does not change to give you a correspondent a fairly homes or routine in bogota for us thank you so much. now to some of the other stories making news around the world protesters in the macedonian capital scorpio battled with police on sunday night angry over an agreement to change the
