certain that you lawmakers are ready to accept term. w.'s max hoffman is in strasbourg has been covering all these negotiations and joins us now from the european parliament where they are voting today max what to any piece there make of fonda line as the nominee to become commission president. it depends which political group you asked now the greens have flatly rejected the whole package so if things don't change dramatically in the next 2 weeks they will not vote in favor of. the conservatives will vote for it was enough on the line at least most likely many of them were not happy with the choice because they wanted their candidate during the campaign months to be able to be the nominee but that didn't happen it's going to be difficult for them to oppose fund a lie nevertheless because like i said she's from the same party and so the conservative e.p. p. would continue to provide the e.u.
commission president now the key to this whole conundrum are the sole szell democrats they are extremely disappointed because up until the end it looks like they're the candidate plans to moments was going to be the choice of the leaders in brussels but that didn't happen as we all know it so now they have to arrange themselves with the situation when you talk to some of them especially the german social democrats are flat out rejecting. how to turn that around within 2 weeks is not very easy to say at this point but it was enough on the line once to become commission president she will need the votes of those social democrats let's take a closer look for a minute here and to fund a lion isn't washy so controversial if confirmed as european commission president the 60 year old would become one of the most powerful politicians in the e.u. but as we've already seen her nomination is not without controversy and in her current role as germany's defense minister she's also faced number of challenges.

nato european leaders have now agreed to choose her as the next president of the e.u. commission if the european parliament endorsers her she would be the 1st woman to fill the influential post. and i understand that will be visiting strasburg and visiting the european parliament the softer new do you think she's going to be able to convince parliamentarians there that she is the right person for this trial. it depends who she's going to visit we know she's going to visit the political group of her own party the european people's party so the conservatives that should be possible she will meet with month it babe i had a chat with faber earlier saw the actually candidate of the conservatives and he said he's going to support her this is just how the political process goes albeit being disappointed about this choice about was enough on the line but you could say
this is a home game if she decides to visit the social democrats it's going to be a lot more difficult like i said earlier they are very disappointed some political groups are extremely opposed to the choice of was enough on the line they are opposed to the whole process how things worked out in brussels this kind of dealing and wheeling behind closed doors but still she's going to have to convince them she's going to have to make contact and visit them at some point not sure if it will happen today max thank you very much t w monday in strong support for the european parliament is meeting today. now to some of the other stories making headlines around the world today at least 40 people died when an airstrike hit a migrant attention center in the libyan capital tripoli official said another 80 had been injured libya's un backed government of national accord has blamed the attack on the self-styled libyan national army it denies being behind strike. demonstrators burned tires and blocked roads across israel to protest against the

of the blocks at this world cup against england it was no different. they believe christian press posting in the back post shocked replacements and making repeated justifying a place in the side. england could have been overruled but they hit back so you know. what. she's going to number 6 in the tournament. but anything she could do so you could both take out alex morgan she had been the stuff and not the team me more than she could be said the bracing her thank you very english way is that having been choking on that cd they were positively crying in sweet by the end of the video referee having only a child. offical frost size helps to this the penalty step captain step fulton she . us brief the sigh of relief a day with that is when it's. sports correspondent all over moody joins us now from
leigh all where the dramatic match took place all the of the favorites the u.s. or through but they really had to work for it didn't they. they certainly did yeah and the initial stages actually looked like they might blow. they started with that kind of ferocious pace and power that we've become so used to seeing from the u.s. in the opening stages of games they dominated the opening changes and deservedly took the late but england did very well to bright that u.s. spell of dominance and leveled the schools and after that the much actually took place in a very kind of even so saying the teams were very evenly matched and england as we saw could even be equalized towards the end but of course the u.s. has so much quality and not see alex morgan is one of the world's best strike is and she proved it again on the biggest stage the world cup semifinal. england came so close to tying the match with the penalty what was the atmosphere like in the stadium at that moment. it was very tense i was sitting
mostly around americans at the game and they were very loud throughout the match but when the referee went over to the video screen to check the replay of the incident they went very very quiet and they stayed quiet right up until i listened i pulled off the site but ultimately put the u.s. in see the world cup final a huge moment for them a hugely disappointing moment for england of course and it wasn't the only one they also had a goal disallowed for a very fractional offside ellen white again coming close of course to getting on the scoresheet again. to moments that will hurt the england players for years to come i'm sure even if they are rightly very proud of that form and says that this tournament now we heard from seeing them right back off the guy let's hear what she had to say about those 2 moments. obviously because medicaid. part of our decision all sides an offside we're not going to argue with that but you know it's easily defined once and for all and and it's a final push to us
a right to the edge. you know even at the end of the game we still looked and even with 10 men unfortunately that's the way. touch the way football goes indeed all the training champions there or in the final again can they be stopped. i think they can i mean they still look like the best team in the world at the moment and they've proved that really by beating some very tough opposition the likes of england and france of course the hosts in the in the quarterfinals they've also beaten sweden already at the tournament one of the other teams left in the play in the semifinal against the netherlands but look the u.s. as i say of taking the lead early on in every game so far they've scored in the opening 12 minutes of every single game they've had at the world cup so far so the key for whoever plays them in the final is to keep them out for that opening kind of stage the opening stretch of the game and if they can do that then ultimately they're not at a disadvantage from such an early stage and they've got a chance
a chance of beating the best team in the world probably all all of them already of did at your sports thank you so much. now in chile and argentina tens of thousands of people watched in all as the sun vanished behind the moon in a total eclipse the 2 countries the only inhabited places on earth where the rare sight could be seen the path of the eclipse started in the south pacific and stretched to the south american continent 11000 kilometers. and just a reminder the top story we're following for you here today on day 3 news new leaders have nominated a german defense minister ursula from the lion for the top job of president of the european commission surprise choice came after 3 days of marathon talks but european greens and socialists say they lose from the mines culmination making it unclear whether she will be confirmed in the post. coming up
