cytological baggage that we all have. this is the point that the guardian makes. they have broken the curse of the penalty shootout will stop it is all to play for, now. swede is next. we will play sweden. it isa swede is next. we will play sweden. it is a betting man... —— sweden. —— ifi it is a betting man... —— sweden. —— if i was a betting man, we will get the final and then brazil will be tough please, please. that is the reality, i'm sorry. you are not alone in celebrating this incredible result. we will see their reaction ina result. we will see their reaction in a second. everybody was sort of tearing their hair out and nodding their heads and all sorts. but the question is this is a brand—new young team and they were so many concerns and doubts about this. i think maybe it is nice to have such low expectations. i went in. to be
5:48 am
honest, i knew about three of their names. usually i'm a bit better than that. i have such low expectations. when gareth southgate — i did not really, although rome was missing a penalty yea rs really, although rome was missing a penalty years ago. but to actually win on penalties with him as the manager, it is... no, we have been here before. we have all been here before. —— i did not really, although i remember him missing a penalty. there are a lot of people around me! penalty. there are a lot of people around me i could mention... others go to bed to get four hours of sleep before work, but i could not sleep. i had to keep going. —— i was about to go to bed. let's go to the financial times which is looking at the financial crisis that has dominated the media headlines for two weeks now. all we had been talk about angela merkel‘s challenge within her own party. but now that this is talking about sebastien cuts, because he was addressing the european parliament yesterday. this is the austrian chancellor. talking

5:50 am
these are being put on the northern border of austria. and they feel these will be a place where the immigrants stay. —— you cannot corbyn camps. had you to bridge between economic migrant who thinks they will be making a financially sensible decision, and people who tried to get away from a terrible persecution? wall or whatever. there is no right answer. we can be in humane and appease the people who are so humane and appease the people who are so scared of the fortress of europe being invaded, or we can be humane and find ourselves with millions of people. that is the week perhaps cannot look after. -- war or whatever. all after properly. let's go back to the financial times. they set up your places spectators was the debate about where they would be europe to make european base.

uk gdp - brexit. the city is about 10% of the uk gdp — collect billions in taxes for our hospitals and so forth. and if we lose yet more business from the city, it is another nail in the cough and for this country's economy. in the meantime, other cities in the uk are emerging as a real hub, maybe a checkup. this is something he had the silicon valley giants are taking their hunter cambridge. it looks like this is becoming a centre for things like artificial intelligence research. it is interesting how there is a rivalry between kent ridge and 0xford on this issue as well. lots of companies are choosing to have the bases in cambridge.” of companies are choosing to have the bases in cambridge. i think amazon, microsoft, apple, they are setting up their businesses there. but when i was at cambridge, and sofa mention that, but when us at cambridge as a student studying, there was the milk run, the big

5:55 am
in fact, yesterday, hardly a cloud in the sky again across much of the country, as depicted by north wales, but there are some subtle differences as we go through the day today. there'll be a little more cloud around for many of us and there may even be a chance of a shower. why? well, the high pressure isjust weakening its grip a little and it's allowing this plume of showery rain to push up from the south—west. they'll be very hit and miss and not everywhere will see them, but there is a risk of a few of those, and at the same time, the north—easterly breeze will drag in more cloud across northern england and eastern england throughout the day. so here, that could just have an effect of the feel of the temperature, but let's take a look at these showers in a little more detail, circulating around that south—west area, but we mightjust see one or two just pushing up into southern england as well. so that could be pretty tricky if you're heading off to wimbledon. there is a small chance — only a very small chance — of catching a shower, but it's certainly worth bearing in mind. i suspect there'll be a little more cloud around and that, for some of you, may come as welcome news. so this is swi9 with cloudy skies overhead.
5:56 am
just an outside chance of a shower, perhaps this is over—reading it a little bit. you really will be unlucky if you do catch one, but it's worth bearing in mind, particularly in comparison to the weather that we've seen of late. but in terms of the feel of things, despite a little more cloud and the risk of a shower, temperatures are still slightly above the average for the time of year, with 21—2a degrees. now, look at this as we move out of wednesday into thursday, we have got a weather front showing its hand in the far north—west. now, this will be interesting — not much in the way of rain on it but it is going to introduce a wind direction from a north—westerly and behind it, something a little bit fresher. so certainly on thursday, more cloud for northern ireland and for much of scotland, and a noticeable difference here to the feel of the weather. further south and east, we've still got that warmth and we lose the risk of a few showers, so temperatures are going to respond again back up to 29 degrees, as opposed to 15 or 19 degrees in the far north—west. now that weather front will drift out of the way and then high pressure builds again
5:57 am
from the south—west so things are going to quieten down as we move towards the weekend, and if you don't believe me, let's have a look at the weekend story. friday into saturday shows the temperatures building and the sunshine set to return, highs of 29—30. take care. good morning — welcome to breakfast with charlie stayt and louise minchin. 0ur headlines today: england finally win a penalty shoot out to reach the quarter—finals of the world cup. two people are in hospital and a major incident is declared in wiltshire after police say a couple were exposed to an unknown substance. in good health — we have new footage of the thai schoolboys trapped in a flooded cave system.
