9:01 am
the world cup in russia where a spectacular error by argentina's goalkeeper moves his team to the brink of crashing out of the tunnel. well i'm terry martin good to have you with us emergency e.u. talks on migration are planned for sunday and italy will know has now confirmed that it will take part but only after german chancellor angela merkel agreed to scrap a prepared joint statement she hoped would clinch a swift deal anti immigrant leaders from central europe meanwhile said they'll boycott the summit in a sign of worsening divisions within europe. just two days to go before german chancellor angela merkel's mini migration summit invitations have gone out in the name of the european commission to ten countries including italy greece spain boag
9:02 am
area and austria merkel wants as many countries as possible to sign up to a deal whereby asylum seekers would be returned to the e.u. country in which they first registered a draft migration accord pointed to a tightening of e.u. asylum policy the document proposed establishing migrant processing centers outside the borders also a mechanism for deportations between e.u. countries cash and other welfare provisions would only be available in the countries migrants are registered and not be controls at stations in airports to limit cross border movement but the document provokes disagreement has soon as it was leaked italian prime minister just said picante complaining that the paper disregarded his country's position he threatened to boycott this weekend's meeting he says italy wants a moratorium on new migrants before it takes any back from of the e.u. countries cities far right interior minister had already ups the rhetoric the previous evening. in europe the times are very very when france and germany decided
9:03 am
refugee policy when they told your opinion italy watch they have to pay and which migrants they had to take and. if you look at it. it took a call from angela merkel and a withdrawal of the draft record before the italian prime minister agreed to attend this weekend's talks we'll see each other in brussels on sunday continue wrote sounds like he is perhaps ready for a fight our europe correspondent barbara bizzle joins us now from lots in board barbara sunday's mini summit is just an informal meeting to lay the groundwork for a full blown e.u. summit next week what is turning out to be so hugely controversial. because of course the government crisis that was created by want to for the nz coalition partners sort of brings in the open all the differences and the total inconsistency is of european migration policy that has been just brushed under the
9:04 am
carpet for years now every summit every meeting there's been talk about it and because there is no consensus and none could be found things we have brushed back under and now they're open and we see kaos days in brussels because they have just forty eight hours to come up with some new proposals that are out palatable to the reception countries particularly italy and greece and we look at the political developments there in the rise of the right wing leader in italy who really wants power and nothing else and he does really care about consensus in europe and we understand how extremely difficult and dangerous the situation is particularly for the german chancellor so we've got some new leaders joining merkel in brussels to talk about migration meanwhile other in new members hold a counter gathering in hungary what stop all about. that's division got group the group of the eastern european four of which is not an
9:05 am
unusual thing they're always hold sort of separate meetings before the e.u. meetings however they made a point of saying we're not counting. they haven't even been invited terry so this is a piece of political theater and some grandstanding that trying to participate in a game that isn't really about them but that is mainly about france and germany because in london the crown was one of the few or european leaders sort of heavy angular markets back and of course the reception countries in particular italy they want to get rid of migrants they want to head over to europe and then before they say we can process further the numbers of incoming and people. and the other side i'm going to marcos under pressure to sort of give people and push people back to them so how can that be brought together nobody knows so there clearly divisions there in the e.u. we've all known that but the big question how likely is it that the e.u.
9:06 am
can agree on an migration policy that will allow the chancellor here in germany to keep her government together. the hell you will not agree not in one go it's not possible and part of this package has already been pushed forward into the fall what the commission hopes for and the i say helpers i'm going to marcus helpers are hoping for is that valid through a trilateral agreement can begin to pave the way and we can slowly move towards a solution in the future that is the best that shouldn't she can get at the moment and whether her a very insistent party will be satisfied with that that is the decision that is going to be made not in brussels not in berlin but in munich i'm afraid barbara thank you so much your correspondent barbara faisal there in luxembourg well while all this is going on in europe chancellor merkel is visiting lebanon

jakarta that killed four people. it's match day nine of the world cup in russia emily all shoots from devious sports is here to talk about it. first of all croatia crushes argentina this is a kind of oh my god moment that's a huge result isn't it absolutely i mean this is about as humiliating as it gets for argentina as the limitations of a team that just narrowly qualified for the world cup were brutally exposed creation on the other hand are fantastic side they've got a good mixture going on of individual technique tactical discipline and the winning mentality but let's have a look at the highlights because there were some stunning scenes at the game. annuity first toss will argentina squander several clear cut chances enzo perez's miss on the hot foul among the worst of that bunch they were made to regret their proficiency in the second and say read it ruthlessly punishing me sweetie caballero era i'm
9:19 am
a first world cup goal for the eintracht frankfurt man and ice cold finish in the fifty third minute leaving caballero no chance. thank you aisha wasn't done then luka mode which was allowed for too much space in the a.t.f. minute he unleashed a sensational strike to double his side's advantage. a time for heroes if ever there was one but any hope soon disappeared and unselfish much hello because of it she gave even rocketed to second bites of the cherry to kill a game in the ninety five minutes three nil the final score. argentina's world cup survival is out of their own hands missy's bid for world cup glory surely up in smoke. looking glum messy this is not the headline that leanna messi was looking for is it in what may have been his this what might be his last world cup tournaments yeah it's really rough for him and to be honest if you looked at him during the game he just looked really really defeated but in his defense there's only so much he can do when the rest of his
9:20 am
team are performing ok let's go to moscow and get some reaction our correspondent jonathan crane is standing by there for straws and you've been telling us this is week that. messi is a kind of hero in russia what's been the reaction to argentina's defeat his defeat his hero as if you will. yes a hero indeed if you ask any russian football fan who that most excited to see this world cup i guarantee you most of them will say no messi there's so much disappointment here one fan i was just speaking to was saying become believe how messy can have so much success with fossilised and then badly with argentina now where you can trust that disappointment with the argentinian friends that absolutely furious and much of that anger is directed at the coach jorge somehow they say he's the main reason this is all going wrong that they are reasonably optimistic they can still progress in this tournament because from an atmosphere point to be you have to hope they do they've been the noisiest by far here in red
9:21 am
square and other central locations in moscow so if argentina do make an early exit their fans will go with them and that would be a massive shame you saying that some are still optimistic argentina's chances but this result doesn't really bode well for them doesn't. it doesn't bode well that sort of that will have a very nervous eye on iceland's match with nigeria later because if i said manage to win that then option tina really are on the brink of elimination it isn't in their own hands as we were hearing even if they beat nigeria in their final match and even if they beat them handsomely it won't guarantee them a place in the knockout stages but based on what we've seen so far that's a long way off they were shambolic against croatia defensively a mess they offered very little going forward and i said many were saying they relied too heavily on lean on messi and that makes them very very predictable easy to defend against they scraped to qualify i mean you're at risk of coming out of the first hurdle here so shambolic making the big headline there but that wasn't
9:22 am
the only game on thursday wasn't enough france beat proof one zero and that means france earned their spot in the knockout stages of the world cup whereas prue has to travel home after the group phase and the frenchman really looked improve from their first appearance in their starting to show why they're actually also favorites to win the world cup and denmark and australia tied one all which leaves both teams with a fighting chance to still a lot of suspense in this tournament jonathan in moscow what do we have to look forward to today. well just up today we have brazil taking on costa rica now as we've been hearing is going to bad wells cup with some of the game's biggest stars and the chips are out messi having problems as we know is the name of brazil hope to reverse that trend brazil in many ways in a similar position to argentina this time yesterday they drew that right now again say that still looking for their first win this tournament that boosted by the news the name on looks to have shaken off a injury he sustained during training now costa rica's said neymar will be marked
9:23 am
by at least two defenders say no can make it easy for him as you might expect to brazil have only lost once to chris to costa rica that was all the way back in one thousand nine hundred sixty now as i was saying i'll take on nigeria after that and the evening game is the other match in brazil was great featuring so and switzerland beautiful weather looks like to johnson for the turn of the today johnson crane in moscow and we'll do it all shows from sports post here in berlin thanks. now this is one of the most iconic images of german history seventy years ago children in west berlin cheer on u.s. and british pilots who occasionally drop candy now those planes became known affectionately as candy bombers they were in fact part of the first international crisis of the cold war after the second world war germany was divided into four occupation zones american french british and soviet tent so it was the capital
9:24 am
berlin in one hundred forty eight the western allies united their zones into one economic and monetary area soviet union reacted by blockading west berlin and closing all over land transport routes to the sectors under western control well to supply the population with essential goods the allies had to use three remaining air corridors and the berlin airlift was born. over more than a year a plane may have dropped to the seas city every three minutes they delivered thousands of tons of food cold medication daily and sometimes even candy for berlin's youngest thess week marks the seventieth anniversary of the blockade our reporter daniel beirut met one berliner who was a child at the time of the airlift here's the story. for boris still feels attached to this place today seventy years ago he watched western allied
9:25 am
aircraft land here to see west berlin. well i think of the past in connection with. i feel totally different back in time in my heart and mind relive those hardships. planes no longer flying. but that then the airport was the heart of one of the most extraordinary rescue missions of all time the soviets blockaded west berlin in one thousand nine hundred the people of the war torn city were on the verge of starvation there was no food or gasoline west berliners were afraid of succumbing to the soviets. got there there. either is not only a case in which the last year either should not own either is why they should i.a.s. added. the western powers response was unique and airlift every few minutes planes
9:26 am
dropped essential supplies in west berlin up to thirteen thousand tons each day the response was just nine years old but he still remembers the airlift well. the planes can't be bombers because the pilots drop sweets from the sky instead of bombs. they drop little parachutes for us kids the whole street was full of children running towards the falling parachutes. of course it was a big deal when one of the kids caught one we were thrilled those chewing gum inside and of course paul's candies. one childhood picture is especially meaningful for fun. and. whenever i look at this picture i look for my brother or for myself but back then we couldn't afford shoes we always went around barefoot. oh i can see you know children who are barefoot.
9:27 am
you can bob. the rescue operation came at a high price more than seventy u.s. and british airmen lost their lives in accidents today a monument stands in their honor at tempelhof airport. yes. i did i see this monument as a sign of the fight for freedom that's what it was the americans fed millions of us west berliners didn't abandon us to the russians. or. back then americans were seen as rescuers and benefactors but today the u.s. is increasingly going its own way even so sklansky it still feels grateful for him the americans will always be friends. so you news for now be back at the top of the star with more thanks for watching.
