and in football coach germany team stuff was a surprise in austria you know pretty world cup friendly will find out how it happened the nature of the show. you money thank you for joining us here in germany a far right politician has talked controversy of to dismissing hitler and the nazi era an example galante the co-leader of the alternative for germany was speaking at a meeting of the party's youth wing his comments of caused outrage with other politicians in the parliament condemning. the seventy seven year old co-leader of the f.t. alexander garland has been accused of dismissing the crimes of nazi germany as a blip in history in comments at the f.t. youth wing's congress he said that historians have placed too much emphasis on the
twelve years of hitler's rule. and yes we recognize our responsibility for the twelve years but dear friends hitler and the nazis are just a bird dropping in over a thousand years of successful german history. of the gold and has repeatedly argued that germany should be proud of its world war two veterans he's also been criticized for failing to rein in the extreme fringes of the party. the a.f.d. tapped into anti immigrant and anti establishment sentiment to win twelve point six percent of the vote in last year's parliamentary elections that makes them the third largest party in the bundestag and the largest opposition party. about those comments from the f.t. of co-leader alexander government have sparked a massive controversy here in germany and political correspondent but the devolved
is with me here in studio so what have some of the reactions to gollum's comments been sofa and we have reactions from more or less all the major parties here in germany and all of them more to speak of discussed the first to react because the secretary general of the c.d.u. that's the conservative party of america tongues language merkel. come combo and she used twitter for her reaction there she wrote fifty million ball back to the whole of course the total ball are just good for the a of d. and going on base is the party's true nature revealed behind its middle class respectability and more or less the same said the counterpart from the social democrats lost the secretary general of the the s.p.d. he wrote to me when i called him he told me that alexander golden statements have root revealed what lies behind the eight of these to say this is a terrifying minimization of the nazi era it's shameful that people like him in the
german bunds talk and we have several of these reactions also talk to the leader of the left party comes to keeping and she said quite frankly these are the words of a fascist talking about fascism so what we hear from all parties in germany is discussed and so very strong statements coming in from a very strong statement that was also made by golan but can saying something like this attract consequences for him here in germany well there are rules in germany and other european countries it is forbidden to deny all the. all the calls to to deny the victims of the nazi era but it is not forbidden to say something what gulden just said he didn't say was no holy cause he didn't say it didn't kill six million jews and he didn't say hitler didn't start the war what he said was in the end but compared to two thousand years of german history the twelve years wouldn't mean very much this of course is disgusting but probably it won't be
a matter for for judge oh but this is obviously not the first time that allen is making such statements as it has a history of doing this yes alex on the government as has become quite a tory is for doing stuff like this it's not only him also his party colleagues have become quite notorious for saying things like that out on the a of d. we know that this is the strategy they will be know from from the internal paper which we could see just before the last election campaign. of d. wants to gather. publicity tour to this they want they want us the press to report on this breaking the taboo in the end and this is this makes it very difficult for us as the press so we always have to decide is this so about that we have to talk about it or should we ignore it but ignore east of it's very difficult for the press to so we are in some kind of
a dilemma so disgusting comments as if call them ringing up a time for self affection for the media thank you very much steve but they developed you know a come. the u.s. is facing nearly universal criticism for imposing metal tariffs on some of its closest allies earlier this week washington was singled out of the g. seven meeting of the world's biggest economies in canada now that meeting of finance ministers and top officials wrapped up on a sour note seven representatives expressed concern and disappointment to washington over the tariffs canada's finance minister said each country would respond individually fears of a possible trade war what all of us would agree is that on trade over the course last couple of days there was an important difference of opinion the americans have decided to in our minds taken action it's not at all constructive it's actually destructive to our ability to get things done and that that concern was
communicated and obviously secretary notion talked about the administration's point of view and we are hoping that with that without approach that we will have clearly communicated our views to the u.s. administration spain has a new minority government as the new prime minister is sworn in but the real sanctions the need of spain socialist party took the oath of office before he will now leave the country up to ousting his predecessor mariana hoey in a no confidence motion in parliament now that was called up to pressure grew into a whore to resign following a corruption scandal involving his conservative. meanwhile in catalonia as. torah swore in his new cabinet. earlier i spoke with ferdinando via spin he's a professor of political science at the autonomous university of wondred and i asked him what's the number one challenge for spain's new prime minister. well i
think it is indeed catalonia but. you know it in perspective i would say what he has to do is to first to create and the effective government panel with with the not backing in parliament in order to be capable of introducing some very needed measures regarding. their regeneration of the political aisle for a situation particularly. achieving it was asians with was because i don't have to push catalonia at the forefront of his challenges and now the new separatist catalan president king tara wants independence starts with the news that his prime minister what concessions do you think such as is likely to make well see his he has any chance of making a great because actions because their name obstacle fall out for solving the problem is really that the spanish prostitution forbids a referendum on independence right so first of all the specialist russian would
have to be reformed and this still no consensus regarding the the reform of the situation in today's part of it. but i think it is it is there good news. because. we have been too separated for a ha it has never even talked to to the kind of representatives and. i think this is this is a very good chance and sunni good chance to start talks to start of zation stew him sternly lewsey asians is seen what we have had we can work together. that was ferdinando via spin his a professor for political science at the autonomous university of madrid now the german national team faced austria in a friendly match ahead of this month's world cup heavy rain hail and event thunderstorms in the austrian city of track and foot initially delayed kickoff but when the referees gave the all clear it was a chance for germany captain and goalkeeper manual noya to show he was ready for
russia. captain men well neuer was made to wait to get back in the german goal bad weather delayed the kickoff for nearly two hours late start did nothing to dull germany's alertness missed it is it pounced on a mistake from austria as keeper and put the world champs zero one nil. later in the first half it was neuer who was put to the test his own casual ball came back at him. and later florian bridge peppered his goal but not by a keeper was up to the test. after the break germany's play began to drop a long corner found it's way to much on him to reckon why emphatic volley to finish all alone at the far post neuer didn't have a chance it would get worse for the visitors i was on your show want to make it to one to austria who hadn't beaten germany in more than thirty years. and those now has some decisions to make not least regarding man will neuer.
from big long walked on jamming is disappointing night of his that's the gate up to his death case calling it mcnamara is here to talk about this to get some x. what went wrong for you you know spoiler well i think they'd like to blame the delay on the weather but realistically talking the first half they were dominant austria were in the game they had a few chances but germany were clearly the better team and in the second off they just dropped off a little bit to the plays off the match admitted as much and austria then used their chances although you have to say it was sloppy defending from germany and for both of those goals i think the defense just didn't look quite a looked enough and that's a little bit worrying germany just what really upped their full full strength in the second half although you have to say it wasn't the starting eleven that they'll be starting with at the world cup tournament you know we live did use this to test out a few players test out a few tactics so we don't have to read too much into it there's still
a lot of time before the world cup and they've lost friendlies like the. before so it doesn't mean that they will go into the world cup on poor form and you'll be loath though did say after the match that clearly there are areas that they need to work on but the spotlight was really on manual noir this is the. that the goalkeeper and also the captain back after an injury how did he fail do you think i think he did reasonably well i mean he hasn't played compasses of football since september when he sustained an injury broke his metatarsal it's the third time he's done that in his career and it just didn't really heal we're not quite sure what happened there but he just didn't come back as quickly as we expected and you know he live said when he announced the preliminary squad that he wanted to go as the number one or not go woods hole and this was his chance to prove himself i mean based on today he couldn't really be faulted for either goals he looks reasonably comfortable most of the time also getting involved with play as is customary for him getting involved using his feet so for me there's no indication that he won't
go you live was confronted after the match with a statistic saying fifty six percent of germans polled don't want him to go as number one he says i don't care if well he has another headache though which is submitting his final squad who do you think is going to have him really scratching his head ahead of russia yeah i mean based on today there was no one who really gave him a headache and no one really capitalized on showing the coach you know what they can do you know the usual suspects did well measures of a great goal but he's basically already punished his take it to russia so there's no question marks over him might even though i was in the spotlight but like i said earlier you can't really fault him for either of the two goals he might have done better but the defense was really the problem that after me neal's pace and kind of capitalized he was the big surprise in the preliminary squad was his first game ever today and he wasn't really able to impress that could be because he doesn't really know the players around him yet he's well quite used to it so for him i
don't think it's just based on two. all the players will be looking at what they do in training how they fared over the whole season and then making his decision but based on what i think i think he's going to drop kevin trap the goalkeeper jonathan toews julian brunt of late accusing i'm mario gomez the veteran striker well let's see what happens next morrow from the d.w. sports to sports desk thank you for joining us for. the french open in paris men's number one rafael nadal is quest to win an eleventh title is very much on track he earned a straight sets win over richard guscott to make the last sixteen over on the women's side of the draw however the top seeded simona halep had her hands full against indra but after taking the first set in a tie break of the romanian overpowered hope own and closing out the match with a six love second set elsewhere in the draw and seeded serena williams continued to nuke shop in her first grand slam since giving birth making quick work of germany's
