the mexican president shows that he can handle she's not like some people said at the beginning of his spirit that he could be like some kind of model he's open to protect the economy he's open to negotiation and he's not thinking with the stomach like some other presidents are wrong. what is the reaction in mexico been though he's open to negotiate but has he possibly made too many concessions there well i think some of the some part of the society is not happy because well they like things to very intellectual way. so they they say well we need to start. the 3 months of prison. to mix things up because well they were speaking about the economy some months ago. nafta was sand and right now he's using these other topic migration as
a measure of pressure but otherwise i think in general. the businessmen are happy because well we knew it was important to stop this at this moment. as part of the deal mexico says it'll deploy 6000 troops to the southern border how likely are they to stop the flow of migrants coming in well i think the most important thing. that they are going to start to have some control over what's happening there because in the past some other presidents just northeast dystopic this year on their word like 3 if it wouldn't exist because it was nothing to mexico directly because people was just passing through i think it's very important to point out that mexico asked for our long term strategy in order to reactivate that corner from central america to tackle these problems not just in one month but for the future. thank you very much.

a real game of it and on another day with some better finishing they could have come away with the win as it was though it was taken the side who writes about all important 1st victory this world cup thanks largely to one of the youngest players in the squad now we've got the highlights in this game so let's take a look about right now. germany almost got off to a dream start with this opportunity in the 3rd minute to do brits firing just inches why china had a chance 10 minutes later one showing she should have pulled the trigger sooner i. dorsenne conjugate deflecting the shocks in the nick of time. china came close again is young lead curled in explicit effort into schultz post. a huge lead off for germany. germany's big break arrived in the 2nd town adores to encourage a corner was cleared but only as far as julia when the midfielder smashing home to
put her in the lead for good. one the final score coach martina foss techmeme board could be happy that her team came away with a scrappy victory. so a rather tight make 3 there for germany but what a moment for julia angwin what did you think of her performance absolutely is very impressive for a while to come out with a moment like that a match winning moment for a 19 year old as well playing a 1st world cup game ever just over the moon after that i thought her and said you hoops that to win is germany's best outlet talking out ledger in the game when they struggled really to create chances those 2 were the best options that they had so that was one plus and i think youth generally was a big plus for germany in this game as well aside from julie had when i also had a daughter who was just 17 years of all come on off the bench. just 21 she is someone with a very bright future i think as a as
a goal scorer so yes certainly the future looks very bright for germany with these 3 players already making an impact on the same as big as the world cup 90 area took on norway how did that one play out yet this one turned into a bit of a walkover for nor why unfortunately for nigeria we got the highlights from this once they can take a look at it was good or right and who opened the scoring for norway in the 1st off a short former team here and thanks for a deflection from nigeria. and not too long after that. lisa marie slimes problem is one that really finished her. shortly after about getting it was pretty much over although it was still with us also not all holiday scoring and go for nigeria and picture perfect result there is no way now it really shows how impressive this norway so ideas because they did this they won this game without not just their best player but arguably the best player in the world the hague about who is missing from this tournament as she has been from the norway team for
