the trend" after a first series win in sri lanka in 17 years. and novak djokovic is bidding for a record—equalling sixth title at the atp finals in london. hello and welcome to sportsday. thanks forjoining us. they left it late but england got their revenge on the team that knocked them out of the world cup. gareth southgate‘s men were a goal down to croatia at wembley and looking like being relegated from the elite group of the nations league, but two goals from jesse lingard and harry kane in the final 12 minutes of the match saw them win 2—1, and with it book their place in next year's finals. john watson was watching the drama unfold at wembley. john — a great comeback from england. yeah, what a comeback indeed, as you
6:33 pm
say. it was clear at the start of the day what england had to do a commoner permutations they had, england had to win to book their place in the semifinals in portugal next summer. blues and they would have been relegated into the second tier of the competition. the margins we re tier of the competition. the margins were just so tier of the competition. the margins werejust so small, tier of the competition. the margins were just so small, and that would have been a sickener for gareth southgate and his team in light of the way they have played and the benefits this tournament has brought his team. we'll talk about those in the moment, but as you say, it was very nearly not going to be england's day at all with croatia taking the lead in the second half before those two goals from jesse lingard and harry kane sealed the win. southgate said his team would go for it, and they certainly did at wembley. at wembley, reminders of an england of old. can gareth southgate match their success with the younger generation?
6:34 pm
for now, the nations league, a win and england would reach the semifinals, a chance to win some silverware, raheem sterling eager to get them there. kane the provider soon provided with an opportunity of his own. he could and perhaps should have done better. with the margin so small, when croatia scored, it was england now facing relegation — a meaningless friendly this wasn't. seeking the win to qualify, southgate sent for reinforcements, harry kane poking the ball forward forjesse lingard to score. but england needed another. who else? captain harry kane getting the ball over the line, and his team too. it would not have felt as good. we
6:35 pm
have been thinking about this all the way up to the march camp. they couldn't have gone any better. to grind it out and come back from behind and turn it around is a great feeling. captain harry kane speaking after the game, who arguably was quiet today by his high standards, but popping up with that crucial goal when it mattered. the benefits of this tournament have been plain to see, hadn't they? we have once again witnessed a huge win for england over croatia. and over spain as well, one of the world's best. the victory over spain felt like a watershed moment for this england tea m watershed moment for this england team in their evolution. as we know, a change in tactics and personnel from gareth southgate, this tournament has enabled him to do that, and that has certainly brought about results as well. and you can
6:36 pm
see just how much playing competitive football has benefited england. we know the nations lee was about doing away with those seemingly irrelevant friendlies and playing competitive football, and england have benefited from that. so, too, have the younger players gareth southgate has begun bedding into the squad. significant that it is england who go through to the semifinals in portugal next summer, a chance to win the nations league outright, and a chance to contest some silverware. it has been a long time since england have won some silverware. this isn't the world cup, but it is in the european championships but it is an opportunity that gareth southgate will be pleased he has not missed out on. all eyes on portugal next summer, then. northern ireland are in action now against austria, in group b3. the irish have already been relegated though after losing their first three matches. austria — who have already won the group — scored first in belfast, just after half time. xaver schlager with the goal.
6:37 pm
but corry evans hit back for the home side, just seven minutes later. that was northern ireland's first goal in four matches. it is still 1—1 with around ten minutes left to play. arsenal have maintained their 100% start to the season in the women's superleague. they beat bottom side everton 4—0. it was 1—0 at halftime but vivianne miedema scored twice in the second half to make sure of the win. that's now eight out of eight for arsenal and they are six points clear of manchester city at the top of the table. but there was late concern for them in the match, with captain jordan nobbs stretchered off with a knee injury. elsewhere, birmingham city beat west ham 3—0 but slip to fourth in the table on goal difference. two goals from fara williams helped reading win 4—1 at brighton. and chelsea thrashed 10—woman yeovil town 5—0 to move up to third. england test captainjoe root says he wants his team to "set the trend instead of following suit" after winning their first series

in sri lanka in 17 years. the lankans had begun day five in pallekele needing 75 runs wih three wickets remaining, but england's spinners once again proved too much for them, as they won the second test by 57 runs. patrick gearey reports. england fans had gathered for the kandy crunch — anticipating a short, sweet finish. they needed just three sri lankan wickets to win the series. moeen ali took the first and most significant of them. when niroshan dickwella departed, so did his team's chances of an unlikely victory. the end came quickly. two balls later moeen baffled suranga lakmal, then pushpakumara pushed back a sitter to jack leach. his fifth wicket in the innings, and england's first win in sri lanka for 17 years. to come here and perform as we have done, and manage to soak up the
6:39 pm
pressure and played back on the opposition for long periods of time as well, to hold our nerve, shows a lot of maturity for what is quite an inexperienced side in this part of the world. not for nothing are england's away fans known as the "barmy army". it's taken a mix of optimism and masochism to follow english cricket teams on foreign shores — but maybe nowjoe root has this side travelling on the right course. it is highly significant. sri lanka have a reputation of ambushing visitors here on pitches that suit them. the fact that they have won not just these first two test matches but also the twenty20 series and the one—day international series as well, they've never done that anywhere before. it is a significant achievement. not for nothing as england's away fans known as the barmy army. it has taken a lot of

following grinned that might follow in win cricket teams abroad. they seem to be back on course. at the women's world twenty20 england and defending champions west indies have already qualified for the semi—finals. they play each other this evening to determine who they'll face there. the winners will face australia in the last four and the losers will meet india. windies currently top the group with three wins out of three. there are in—play highlights on the bbc sport website and app, test match special commentary on bbc radio, the bbc sport website and app from eight o'clock this evening. open champion francesco molanari has won golf‘s race to dubai. molanari could only have been beaten to it if tommy fleetwood had won the world tour championship, but the englishman finished a long way down the leaderboard. the tournament was instead won by his compatriot danny willett — this is his brilliant approach on the 17th in dubai. willet finished on 18 under par,
6:41 pm
two clear of the pack. it's his first win since the masters two and a half years ago. it was tricky art llama. it probably won't sink in for a while. with all the ups and downs, injuries and this and that is. like i say, the body feels a lot better. there were times i wasn't sure if i would be able to do it again. pretty special. very proud. it has been an incredible year, an incredible season. i have achieved all i could ask for and even more. you look at the names on the race to divide trophy, and it is only the top guys that have done it. you put a major on top of that and there isjust a dream season.
6:42 pm
world number one novak djokovic is bidding to match roger federer‘s record of six atp finals titles. he's in action right now against alexander zverev, who's playing in the biggest match of his career. the 21—year—old german beat federer to reach this final. it is currently 11—3 to djokovic, currently going with serve, though. these are live pictures from the 02 arena. victory for djokovic would also make him, at 31, the oldest winner of the season—ending tournament. you can watch the match live now over on bbc two. in rugby union, two late tries helped england's women beat canada 27—19 at doncaster. the red roses led at half—time, before tries from kelly smith and then this one from abbie scott sealed the win. it means england stay undefeated this autumn, with a final match against ireland next saturday. champions exeter have gone back to the top of rugby union's premiership
6:43 pm
with an injury—time win over bristol, in a dramatic match at ashton gate. bristol — who were 11th in the table before kick—off — led 26—12 early in the second half, thanks to this try in the corner from luke morahan. and they almost held on... ..until in the 83rd minute. the chiefs were awarded a penalty try for illegally bringing down this maul. they won 31—29 to go ahead of saracens on points difference. now let's round up some of today's other news. great britain's women are still without a win at hockey's champions trophy in china. having drawn with the hosts in their opening match they lost 2—0 to six—time champions australia this morning. their next game is against japan on tuesday. ronnie o'sullivan and judd trump are level at four frames all after the first session of the northern ireland open final. it's been high quality snooker so far, with trump making three centuries, they'll play to a finish at seven o'clock tonight in belfast, with the first to nine frames taking the title.
6:44 pm
and rain in valencia made for a dramatic season finale in motogp. several riders had big crashes, including maverick vinales, his yamaha team—mate valentino rossi and recent world champion marc maquez. the race was red—flagged and restarted, with ducati's andrea dovizioso going on to take his fourth win of the season. finally, staying with motorsport, formula 3 driver sophia fleursch has fractured her spine in a high—speed crash at the macau grand prix in china. just a warning that some viewers may find the pictures distressing. the 17—year—old lost control going into a bend before flying through the air and crashing backwards into fences. she is conscious and in a stable condition and has since tweeted to say "i'm fine but will be going into surgery tomorrow morning." a japanese driver she first crashed into has been taken to hospital with back pain. two photographers and a marshal are also in hospital. that's all from sportsday.
6:45 pm
we'll have more throughout the evening. hello there and welcome to the film review here on bbc news. and taking us through this week's cinema releases is mark kermode. what delights do you have for us this week, mark? very interesting week, we have fantastic beasts: the crimes of grindelwald which is the latest in thejk rowling wiza rd world expanding. we have suspiria, which is a remake of the dario argento 1977 horror classic. and the price of everything a documentary about the intersection of art and commerce. ok, so, fantastic beasts: the crimes of grindel —vald or —wald? even within the films the w and v sounds are slightly floating. are you a harry potter fan?
6:46 pm
up to a point. 0k. there's some question about whether or not if you hadn't kept up with the expanding harry potter wizarding universe, how much of this you would follow. it follows on from fantastic beasts and where to find them left off. essentially grindelwald was in prison at the beginning, there is a fantastic escape sequence, he goes to europe to spread his anti—muggle, pure blood message. meanwhile, eddie redmayne's character of newt is enlisted to help thwart his rise. but dumbledore, now played byjude law as the younger incarnation of dumbledore, is conflicted. here's a clip. why can't you go? i cannot move against grindelwald. it has to be you. i can't blame you. in your shoes i'd probably refuse, too.
6:47 pm
it is late. good evening, newt. wait, no. oh, come on. dumbledore. so, it's an odd one, on the one hand, i like this world, i like these characters, and i was somebody who was very much seduced by the harry potter cinematic world because the first films i wasn't crazy about and then i kind of felt into them round about the time of prisoner of azka ban. one of the issues with this is, and this was something which was true of the star wars prequels, because the world that has been created is so big and expansive, when you start telling this story from this perspective, there is an awful lot of detail and plot and characters and threads and i do feel that there are times that this gets lost in its own back story, in its own threading
6:48 pm
the narrative together. that said, there's a sort of strange tonal mix, on the one hand you get moments of slapstick comedy, which we have always had in the potter movies, there are times when you have spectacular set pieces, great big visual effects, set pieces, huge things happening on screen in a way which is rather delightful. you also get the return to hogwarts, which which was a moment, at the screening i was in, you could hear people enjoying that. and there is also a lot of darkness in the same way that there was with the deathly hallows films and i think some of it works, some of it gets confused and tied up in its own back story and logic. however it does come together in what's kind of the third act, when all of these themes about the central character, who is somebody who's basically spinning lies and deceit and has this aryan philosophy of pure blood, which is something which has
6:49 pm
run all the way through the stories and this is tied in with the politics of the era in a way which looks like its setting us up for something very interesting in the next film and again that is one of the weaknesses of this, quite a lot of it felt like getting everything in the right place so that the next instalment can do something really interesting. i mean if you are a fan of this world and there's no question people will go to see it, there are very good things in it, some nice performances and touches, i did feel it got lost in its own exposition, there was almost too much plot fighting for space. and there are times when it lacked that central clear line which you need through this kind of narrative. but by the time we got to the end of it, it had gathered it all together, ok, fine, now i'm ready for the next instalment — that is going to be quite a way off. there is going to be quite a few more! there will be, yes. it's doing fine. it'lljust kind of keep going. suspiria, supernatural horror, is that the right categorisation? ok, well, did you ever see
6:50 pm
the dario argento suspiria? i'm afraid i didn't. that's fine. quick primer, dario argento in the ‘70s, having done these giallo thrillers moved into sort of supernatural suspense, horror and suspiria was a huge international hit, moving on from the work he had set up until that point. everything was very stylish. the story was an american dancer comes to europe, she enrols at a dance academy where she uncovers witchy secrets. now we have what tilda swinton describes not as a remake but a cover version directed by luca guadagnino. story is dakota johnson comes to europe, she enrols in a berlin academy, a divided berlin it is set in, and she goes to a dance academy where she uncovers witchy secrets. but this one, which is pretty much an hour longer than the argento version, there's an awful lot of back story about baader—meinhof, about nazi legacy, about the changing role of women in pre and post war society. there is an awfully sort of verbose feeling of explaining everything. my problem with it is there are individual things in this which are very good,
6:51 pm
the dance numbers are evocative horror dance numbers in the same way that gaspar noe's film climax had evocative dance numbers. the problem is when i watched suspiria by dario argento, there was no point where i thought, this is great but what it really needs is an hour of people holding forth about the politics of this specific time. also, the dario argento one alludes to its timeless setting whereas this one is very specifically set when it is set and there is a lot of stuff about what is going on in the news! and the weird thing is that if, like me, you're a horrorfan, you will think, the argento was pretty much untouchable and what this has done is demonstrate that there are interesting things you can do with that idea, but i'm not sure that weighing it down with all this padding and baggage is actually to anyone's benefit. however, i do know a couple of people who have seen it and said, well, i think it's the masterpiece that the argento version never was. they're wrong — but it is an interesting if utterly flawed opinion!
6:52 pm
they're wrong but it's their a valid opinion! they have every right to be completely wrong! you're so generous! it's not about being generous, it's about being right! this isjust a matter of right and wrong. the next one a documentary, the price of everything. yeah, which leads us very nicely into this. my opinion is my opinion, why is it any better than anyone else's? it employs the phrase price of everything — which implies price of everything and the value of nothing. it's a documentary about how we now live in a world in which a art commerce is this multibillion—dollar industry and in which modern art sells for millions and millions, not old masters but modern art, which is being made now, selling for millions... speaking of that, we have been reporting on bbc news that a david hockney has sold at auction for £70 million and that is the highest value for a work by a living painter to be sold.
6:53 pm
wow. in a way that makes this all the more timely because at the beginning of this, you see this montage of auctions in which huge amounts of money are going... we hear from artists and auctioneers and dealers, collectors and investors, about what it is that they are doing and what it is that they are investing in. and the thing i like about the documentary is, it's notjudgemental, it's not saying you can't possibly talk about art and commerce because the two things are bound up. at one point it says, all of this money is making people make more sun, and stop complaining about it! then there is the question of supply and demand, if there is more of it, is it worth less? then there is the people who wanted to go somewhere where it can be seen by the public — here is a clip. so, you want your work in museums. museums are for the lack of a better word the gatekeepers of culture, to some extent. once you cross the threshold you are walking in and you're
6:54 pm
thinking, these are works that matter, not just for our generation but for future generations. so maybe things happen and i fall out of favour in a number of years, it will go into storage, but someday, maybe in 50 years, maybe in 70, maybe in 150, it could come out, it doesn'tjust vanish. what i know about art would not fill the back of a postage stamp but i was really gripped by these debates about, how can you say that this painting is worth this much money and how is it that this has now become an investment strategy? if an artist isn't actually making the work of art, can they still put their name on it? and all the things put together in a way that thought it was witty and fascinating and i came out of it thinking i knew more than i did when i went in but i was entertained throughout. speaking of entertainment, best out at the moment? yeah, they have reissued what was a brilliant film, 9to 5.
6:55 pm
it still holds up and it has a very strong feminist message but it is funny and he has characters you can root for and i can't wait to go back and see it again in the cinema. yeah. lovely. and best dvd? this one is out on dvd and i was never a bros fan... i bet you were! hey, listen, i liked showaddywaddy so i have no shame in pop music! but bros i never did. but this documentary made me really like them. it is part spinal tap, part sibling rivalry, and it is also a story of the fans got out of loving bros, it's very sympathetic, very funny and very, very funny and i thought it was touching. mark kermode, secret bros fan, even though he won't admit it! quick reminder before we go that you will find more film news and reviews cross the bbc online and you can find all our previous programmes on the bbc iplayer. but that is it for this week,
6:56 pm
