and sergio garcia will take a four—stroke lead into the second round of the nedbank golf challenge in south africa. hello and welcome to the programme, where we start with the news that arsenal suffered bad news in their goalless europa league draw with sporting lisbon. danny welbeck suffered an horrendous ankle injury inside the opening half an hour which will more than likely spell the end of his season. the 27—year—old england international fell awkwardly inside the opposition penalty area and was stretchered off, as the gunners qualify for the last 32 in a match that saw former barcelona defenderjeremy mathieu sent off for taking down pierre—emerick aubameyang in a scoring position outside the box. but unai emery‘s side did extend their unbeaten run to 15 despite failing to score although the welbeck injury was the manager's focus. now he is in the hospital and the news is, at the moment, with this

injury, we think it is a serious injury. when you are playing football, when you are playing with the competitive matches, it can happen. we don't want it, but this is our profession. elsewhere, bayer leverkusen beat zurich 1—0 to qualify for the last 32 — and zurich are though as well despite that defeat. dinamo zagreb have qualified from group d after beating spartak turnava 3—1. in group h, wins for eintracht frankfurt and lazio means they've also qualified for the last 32 — with two games to spare. and so have chelsea. olivier giroud scored the only goal of the game as they won at bate borisov in group l. he isa he is a very important player for us, because he is a very, very useful play—off for the team. ——

play. the strikers want to score. and so for his confidence i think thatis and so for his confidence i think that is very important. but i don't wa nt that is very important. but i don't want him to be worried about scoring, because for us is very important and very useful. staying with football, the england manager gareth southgate has been defending his decision to include wayne rooney in his squad for next thursday's friendly against the united states at wembley. rooney now plays his club football in the usa for dc united. he officially retired from international football in august 2017 — nine months after winning the last of his 119 caps. but the former england captain, who's scored a record 53 goals for his country, will be given the chance to make a farewell appearance in a match where some of the gate receipts will go to the wayne rooney foundation. gareth southgate doesn't agree that selecting rooney devalues an england cap. if anybody deserves one more it is

somebody who is at a 119, more than somebody who is at a 119, more than somebody who is at a 119, more than somebody who has had one or somebody that might have had a handful. i think i has earned the right to that over a period of over ten years and six major tournaments with england and to be the record goalscorer. so i think there would be numerous exa m ples of i think there would be numerous examples of people that have earned caps in different circumstances and the fact is it's the opportunity to pay tribute to what he's achieved. england's cricketers are on the brink of victory in the first test against sri lanka in galle — thanks to a century from keatonjennings. england made 322 for six declared in their second innings — with jennings unbeaten on 146. he reached three figures for the first time since making a century on debut in 2016. that leaves sri lanka chasing a record score of a62 to win — and they'll resume on day four shortly on 15 without loss — jo currie was watching.

is a big deal, you know, you always wa nt to is a big deal, you know, you always want to win with the support of your fans, yourfamily is, you know, coming to see you. and i think for us coming to see you. and i think for us it is a great deal and to win, to regain the title here and notjust that but the first ever standalone t20, that would be history, so we definitely want to create history again. in rugby union, the pick of this weekend‘s november internationals is in london where england face new zealand. it‘s the first meeting between the teams since 201a — and the all blacks‘ first game at twickenham since winning the world cup there three years ago. our sports correspondent joe wilson has more. well, it is a welcome back to leafy south—west london for the autumn internationals for the all blacks. it‘s been a while. we are here at their training base, twickenham just down the river thames. new zealand confirmed today
1:52 am
that the rarity value of this fixture does make it a bit special. and let‘s bickley, there is new zealand influence where ever you look in european rugby, look at inglot‘s team for twickenham. there is brad shiels who will start in an england jersey, having played all his rugby career, really, in new zealand. he‘s what new zealand‘s coach tim hansen makes about that. it will be lining up and facing the haka facing a team he has always wa nted haka facing a team he has always wanted to play for. and u nfortu nately we wanted to play for. and unfortunately we did not pick him. for his day, i say unfortunately, and now he has the opportunity to play against them. some of his great mates are in that team. i think i will find it emotional. eddie jones‘s england team won themselves a bit of breathing space with a narrow victory against south africa last weekend, but they didn‘t score a try. maybe ashton back in the team will give them some creativity, 80

try scoring option. there was a lot of talk at new zealand‘s media conference today about the difference in sales, the english way in the all blacks way —— sales. difference in sales, the english way in the all blacks way -- sales. when i was in the all blacks way -- sales. when iwasa in the all blacks way -- sales. when i was a kid in the all blacks way -- sales. when iwasa kidi in the all blacks way -- sales. when i was a kid i wanted to see the ball flying around. that's good. encourage that here, that would be great. that does not mean we will not see it from england. they have the potential to do that. do you think it is a mindset thing that you need to have the confidence to play that way? we are encouraged as coaches and encouraged from a young age to express ourselves. i don‘t know if it is the same uphill. but it is great growing up knowing that coaches back youtube express yourself as a player, because ultimately you are out here doing it forfun and ultimately you are out here doing it for fun and that‘s where you get the biggest rewards and it is enjoyable at the end of the day. at the end of the day, one thing is absolutely clear, before any match the all blacks play everyone in new zealand and pretty much everyone in the

1:55 am
initially, western parts of the uk. we already have had some rain and some stronger winds across some western areas. this was the weather front that went through during the course of thursday. this next whether system is rushing in and that really is going to bring some very poor weather to northern ireland, scotland the irish sea coast, wales and down into south—western england as well. through the early hours we still have the rain across some western areas, that‘s the left over from what we had on thursday, actually. this next weather system here — that‘s piling in. some very strong winds with this weather front. before that arrives, actually a bit of a calm for some of us. in fact, starting off fairly bright across many central and eastern areas of the uk. here‘s friday morning, as this weather system approaches, a lot of isobars here, these white lines, pressure lines, that indicates strong winds and those winds can be quite destructive. heavy rain and gales are expected across western and south—western parts of the country.
1:56 am
also central and southern england will be feeling the effects of this weather system. so let‘s get the forecast then for friday morning onwards, initially the weather is actually not too bad across central and eastern areas, even the south coast will have some sunshine. in fact, it could be a bright, if not sunny, start but then very quickly the weather will go downhill by the time we get to the middle part of the afternoon. the south—west of england, wales, northern ireland, the irish sea here, gale force winds and some very heavy rain. let‘s zoom into this area. this is what it looks like at three o‘clock. the dark blues obviously indicate the very heavy rain. within this band of rain some very strong gusts of winds, could be in excess of 60 miles per hour in some coasts. that‘s also strong enough to cause some disruption and damage to trees potentially. and very windy a little bit further towards the east as well. so even if you do not get the rain, those winds really will be picking up. friday night into saturday, that band of wind and rain sweeps right across the country. the worst will be in the west. as that band of rain moves towards the east it will tend to ease. by the time we get to saturday morning, it is out of the way and we are left with a day
1:57 am
of sunshine and showers. still quite a breezy day but nowhere near as windy but relatively mild. mild south—westerly winds so highs up to around 1a degrees or so. here‘s remembrance day, sunday. we have sunshine and showers on the cards. some of the showers will be heavy but many of us should have a decent day too. that‘s it from me. bye— bye. welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to viewers in north america and around the globe. my name is mike embley. our top stories: us authorities announce they will block asylum claims by people who enter the country illegally. civil liberties groups say the move is illegal. a former us marine with suspected mental health problems is named as the gunman who shot and killed 12 people in a bar in california. tens of thousands are ordered to evacuate as a fast—moving california wildfire explodes
