i'm irish waiter thanks for joining us at the world cup in russia defending champions germany have a lost their opening match to underdogs mexico one and nothing i'm joined here in the studio by chris harrington from sports across there's definitely plenty to dive into and about the shock defeat but first let's take a look at how exactly germany lost their first world cup opener in thirty six years . a mexican stunner in the thirty fifth minute she had ito left much from those ins around bullets hang in his tracks and fed having less on her own with the bones of the. dismissive lazing counterattack from the mexicans maisano made a nifty move and measured is it in the box and fired the ball passed to help the smile knowing exultation for 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 moscow to ice to go matches but he couldn't flick it past the m.r.o. and show up the ball then found its way back to bronze but his streaking long range shot clipped the post mexico now top group f. well germany needs to go back to the drawing board. press there was really an onion in a gated disaster for germany what do you make of the performance you know take a page out of you or he may love their head coach addressed the media he called it negligent in haphazard i would have to agree because as defending champions you expect more from them they're known as a turning ment 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 net but if 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 a progress moving forward and reclaim that now for a german audience watching this are there any positive takeaways at all from this game where 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's one positive you know and factoring in them being 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 with now germany's goalkeeper man on neuer is back on the pitch after nine month layoff an injury is nine months too soon for i would say so i'm i'm of the opinion yes because you know he hasn't had a 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 the design now 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 about after i saw this because my bone though is known as superman between the posts clearly mexico at some kryptonite in their boots because they walked away with the upset so i think it was too early for manuel neuer your he love has some talent on the bench testing again even kevin trap you know so we have to wait and see what happens when with for but turned quickly to the other days actions of brazil and switzerland just wrapped up what happened there was a pretty shocking finish i mean even that even you know and it started off in a defensive blunder you know the swiss headed ever so cross right to the feet of philippe could she know five started right out the reach of you on somewhere in the
twentieth mini he had no chance to stop that. watch and 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 him to quarter clearly into the box stephen 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 shocking 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 of 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 may be 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's shock defeat to mexico right there and that's a prize draw between brazil and switzerland elsewhere serbia defeated costa rica one nil that's a wrap up of the latest world cup soccer action chris harrison from g.w. sports thank you so much thank you. now to some of the other stories making news around the world afghan officials say at least eighteen people have been killed in a suicide bombing in the city of jalalabad the blast struck a crowd of people as they were leaving the governor's compound it's the second attack this weekend that's targeted security forces and civilians during a unilateral government service fire. french prosecutors say a woman armed with

no ruction of relief after a week long odyssey at sea. was very happy to escape. the three vessel convoy was carrying six hundred thirty migrants including some one hundred twenty three unaccompanied minors some of the new arrivals had to be taken directly to hospital. volunteers turned out in their hundreds to assist the migrants and called for cooperation among you state's. board i think the aquarius has become a symbol that something isn't working that we are here confirms that it doesn't and wouldn't be like this if politically things worked in europe. a week ago the migrants were rescued from overcrowded dainties by the aquarius in the mediterranean. the ship soon became the focus of
a pan-european dispute about migration when it was turned away by malta and italy with rome saying e.u. member states were not doing enough to shoulder the migrant burden. spain's new socialist government is offering the migrants free health care and says they will examine their refugee status on a case by case basis. german chancellor angela merkel is seeking emergency talks with several e.u. nations on migration policy the very same issue that is bringing germany to the brink of its own polar crisis americal is locked in a rout with her interior minister horst is a harper he has threatened to defy her and go ahead with plans to unilaterally tighten germany's borders merkel is adamant a european solution must be found. conservative newcomer eva has won colombia's landmark presidential election two k. was running against former rebel and leftist gustavo pedro it was
a close contest with counting almost complete taken around fifty four percent of the vote his victory over petro could have implications for the country's historic peace deal with the former far crumbles the historic 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 affair. who is following the elections for us from bogota ophelia these results came in 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 surveys are right they were right on the first round of elections and yes it is confirmed 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 then 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 handpicked 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 that 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
once 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 the an agreement that has already not been implemented as they wished we see that many of the territories that were former territories are now being taken over by. 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 colombians 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 believe the majority of colombians are supporting do kay who is not in favor of how the agreement is looking they do agree with him that the former members of the far there are less should be serving jail 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. it's always nice
