7:03 pm
so thrilled to watch it. yes and i am so looking at my monitor is here from the stadium, i can see the england players getting on the team bus and and joking. and dele alli carrying a pizza for theirjourney back to their training camp as they extend their stay here in russia. do we think we would be saying that all those weeks ago as they headed here, a young in experience —— and inexperienced team. several generations on the last team that reached the semifinal. missing this penalties and there have been a few near misses, and in the early 2000, 2002 and 2006 they reach the quarterfinals and i suppose the thing that you said, the word extraordinary, it was extraordinary for a lack of drama. remember former nights ago in moscow the penalty shoot out against the colombians, we thought same old england, a penalty shoot out but they came through that
7:04 pm
for the first time at a world cup, the fourth time of asking and getting through a penalty shoot out. and then suddenly there was the believed, the wave of support, those millions back in the uk and i know you're going to go to one of the fan parts injust a moment but you're going to go to one of the fan parts in just a moment but that believe putting garrett southgate on and weren't even born during the italian 90s. they are an scared ambling with freedom. it was a straightforward win against the swedes and a little dramatic in the second half butjordan pickford who was a superstar in the last 16, pulled out three world—class saves yet again. i was very surprised if he isn't heading for the golden glove, the prize for the best goalkeeper at a tournament in harry kane did not score at the captain, but he still leads the race for the golden boot. but it was a wonderful performance and you feel like this was the change that we have been hoping to
7:05 pm
see for england because they only showed flashes of what they can do in the last four matches but against the swedes it was business like they got thejob done the swedes it was business like they got the job done with minimal fuss and they are through to the first semifinal in 28 years but more importantly look at it like this, they are one win away from their first world cup final since you know when, 1966 and first world cup final since you know when,1966 and all first world cup final since you know when, 1966 and all that stop you writing their own history and that is the mantra that gareth southgate has been driving home. notjust since they have been arriving here in russia but the weeks of preparation and months of qualification as he melded the squad together. he knows estrada dunn strongest 11 were good enough to beat sweden and they have to step up again here at the stadium in moscow where they would be facing the hosts russia, or croatia. it is still
7:06 pm
goalless and some auroras from the barand it goalless and some auroras from the bar and it suggests that the russians are on top. it is england who are in the semifinal line—up. russians are on top. it is england who are in the semifinal line—uplj love when you wax lyrical. our reporter has been in a box park in south london watching the van's excitement during the game and caught up with two former professional footballers to get their reaction. the weather has been goodin their reaction. the weather has been good in atmosphere has been read dunn electric. we get reaction from two former footballers to get there —— you predicted it would be a 2—0 victory for england. i was optimistic and i was right, so it is brilliant. when you look back at the match itself, the game, did anything stand out for you in terms of highlights? i think our goalie
7:07 pm
again, fantastic, do you know what i mean? great saves. but i think collectively we are a bit more confident and we were going for it more and driving for it and getting into the right areas to get something happen. and i think that was a big percentage of the game. we have one former furball or in one former chelsea player, who is also here, and! former chelsea player, who is also here, and i saw at one point with your hands on your head. the near misses, how intense was this game? it was very intense and you want the goalie, and in the game with colombia, the last—minute equaliser sucked the life out of everyone and did not want to go through that again and went dele alli scored, it was a relief and maybe we should've had two or three then. harry kane as captain, as he proven to the world he is world—class? captain, as he proven to the world he is world-class? he is world-class
7:08 pm
for a season or he is world-class? he is world-class for a season oi’ two he is world-class? he is world-class for a season or two and we have a world—class striker and captain and he shows his experience in gameplay and game management. gareth southgate has been tremendous as well and i southgate has been tremendous as welland i remember southgate has been tremendous as well and i remember playing with them asa well and i remember playing with them as a kid and crystal palace. he isa them as a kid and crystal palace. he is a gentleman and knows his foot ball is a gentleman and knows his football and a very intelligent person. i think he is getting everything very calculated, he is doing an exceptional role so far. he seems to take everything in his stride and that is good for the players. he has that feel. when players. he has that feel. when players leave the field, you see his arms around them and regardless of the display and they are with them andl the display and they are with them and i think that is the thing. he played dumb i change the culture of the english team. —— he has changed the english team. —— he has changed the culture of the english team. and what we have now is players who want to represent and are singing the
7:09 pm
national anthem and equal country is behind them and they realise that and it is a great thing and today we saw it and there are many bars and places like this all over the country that are doing the same thing and it is a good thing. country that are doing the same thing and it is a good thing]! coming home. reporting from box park in south london. in a tweed for the kensington palace theatre, prince william wrote you are doing just that and this has been an incredible world cup run and we enjoy every minute. football is coming home. downing street also hailed the england victory. and the twitter site said huge congratulations to gareth southgate and his team and an excellent win to make the whole country proud. three lions, world cup 2018. we will find out how this story is covered in the front pages andi story is covered in the front pages and i imagine it will make an
7:10 pm
appearance at 10:30pm and 11:30pm this evening. the guest tonight is the author and columnist for the evening standard to knows a thing or two about football and the financial services correspondent for the sunday times. the prime minister has refused to rule out making it easier for eu citizens to come to the uk when people from other parts of the world after brexit. the cabinet agreed that unlimited immigration from eu will and but speaking to the political editor, theresa may did not rule out so—called preferential access for eu citizens after britain leaves. the prime minister was speaking after the 12 hour cabinet meeting when she security minister's backing for the plan for the future relationship between the uk and the eu. what is the point of leaving the eu. what is the point of leaving the eu if we end up with a relationship that has so many tight links such as what you propose? what we are proposing is a good dealfor britain and its future, we are leaving the
7:11 pm
european union. i think when people voted to leave the european union they wanted an end to free movement and it will end, they wanted to in the jurisdiction and it will end, they wanted to in thejurisdiction of and it will end, they wanted to in the jurisdiction of the court of european court of justice. the jurisdiction of the court of european court ofjustice. and they wa nt european court ofjustice. and they want us to stop sending vast sums of money to the eu as we do today. and thatis money to the eu as we do today. and that is exactly what we will do. it will be in a way that protects jobs and enhance the economy for the future. for many brexiteer is, the commitment for following the commitment for following the commitment to share so much with them sounds like we are not really leaving in the way they believed, it does not sound very dramatic and on the other side, if we're going to be so the other side, if we're going to be so closely tied, even if it makes sense, whiteley that all? we are leaving so we can ensure that we bring an end to free movement, we bring an end to free movement, we bring an end to free movement, we bring an end to the jurisdiction of the european court ofjustice, we are in control of our money, borders and laws into the future and we have the freedom to strike our country deals with the rest of the world,
7:12 pm
rather than those trade deals being struck in the interests of brussels. that will give us that freedom and enable us to protectjobs and enhance the economy for the future and bring more jobs enhance the economy for the future and bring morejobs into the uk. this is a job that delivers on brexit but does so in a way that ensures we can build the bright future for brain. in the agreement you make a commitment to and unlimited eu migration and are you ruling out giving some form of preferential treatment to eu citizens after we leave? free movement for the youth being union well and. that was not my question. what i said before and will continue to say, people will still want to carry on travelling to europe and europeans travelling to the uk and people will still want to have opportunities in each other‘s countries as we have for people around the rest of the world. but when it comes to the hard haggling in the deal, are you ruling out or
7:13 pm
not giving eu citizens some form of preferential treatment in the future. what i am clear about is that we will bring an end to free movement as we look ahead to the immigration rules for people coming from the european union. we need to look at that in the context of the wider rules we have for immigration for outside of the european union and we will decide the rules that are right for the uk. it is possible to get some preferential treatment? we are going to decide, what we're going to do is say what works for the uk, what is right for the united kingdom. we will put our national interests. to get to this stage you had to get to negotiating a writer on top table and were you surprised that some of the brexiteer bravado seemed to disappear? what was crucial yesterday is we had a very good discussion and detailed discussion and yes, we agreed to be position that we can now all take forward as a government and the challenge now is if you would like,
7:14 pm
to the european union, let's sit around the table and discuss this, this is a proposal, a serious workable proposal. but let's spell it out, you believe yesterday drew a line and now anyone who speaks out against policy, they will have to walk away? yesterday what i said was that collective responsibility has returned and what i felt and heard from the people sitting around the table was a real sense we move forward together and we are at the start of the next phase of the negotiations, a complex phase of negotiations, a complex phase of negotiations but we have a good proposal on the table and i want to see the pace of the negotiations increased and the intensity increase so we can increased and the intensity increase so we can meet what we are all working to which is in the autumn, in october, how we are going to leave the eu and what the future relationship will be. are you hoping this will be the end of the drama over the european union? what we are
7:15 pm
all doing is putting the national interest forward and we will be out there and we are going to be negotiating a deal that is good for britain. you are watching bbc news in the headlines this evening... fans celebrate as england go through to the first world cup semifinal in 28 years after a 2—0 win against sweden. following yesterday's cabinet agreement at checkers, the prime minister refuses to rule out preferential treatment for eu citizens coming to the eu after brexit. a group of 12 thai boys are trapped in a flooded cave for two weeks and sending emotional letters to the parents telling them not to worry. more now to the parents telling them not to woi’i’y. more how on to the parents telling them not to woi’i’y. more now on oui’ to the parents telling them not to worry. more now on our top story. england is three to the semifinals of the 2018 world cup after they beat sweden in this afternoon's match. the final score was 2—0 with a headerfrom the match. the final score was 2—0 with a header from the first goal and
7:16 pm
dele alli. let's get more from the moscow correspondent who is in dunn at the stadium. how confident were fa ns at the stadium. how confident were fans before the match began?” at the stadium. how confident were fans before the match began? i was speaking to them on the way into the ground and they were saying things like 3—0, ground and they were saying things like 3-0, 2-0. ground and they were saying things like 3—0, 2—0. the least competent man spoke to was 1—0. they were confident but they were not complacent. there were no easy teams left in the world cup but they have been singing the song, football is coming home and they have the chance to get louder and louder here in russia and of course back in the uk. bans russia and of course back in the uk. ba ns were russia and of course back in the uk. bans were confident but on the way out they were jubilant and overjoyed that not only did england get through, but they did it in style and play pretty easily. you do not get those very often from the england team so here in the centre of the city tonight, there are fans out enjoying the moment and it is a
7:17 pm
moment of history for the england tea m moment of history for the england team but for the fans as well. they have been here for the last couple of days and a lot of the people we have been speaking to here are people who got tickets at the last minute and watching the team perform in the television back in the uk wa nted in the television back in the uk wanted to be here in russia to experience so they jumped wanted to be here in russia to experience so theyjumped on planes and came all the way down. as far behind me is actually in the city where a lot of the england fans have been spending the last couple of days and they are in there tonight, they are probably there celebrating england but for the moment celebrations here in the centre are subdued because they are transfixed by the russia game. russia against croatia and whoever wins that is to england will face in the semifinal, the first in 28 years and i think the first in 28 years and i think the england fans are backing russia for the semifinal. what are they saying to you on how do they plan to stay on because you do not know what you need to remain in the country until your table has one? we
7:18 pm
you need to remain in the country untilyour table has one? we have heard all sorts of stories, people who say they jumped heard all sorts of stories, people who say theyjumped on a plane and came here with no return tickets because they are hoping to stay to because they are hoping to stay to be glorious and. they do not know how long that could be but they are hoping it could be be final so people without return tickets, and one guy was speaking to someone from up one guy was speaking to someone from up north, and said that he actually quit hisjob to be here and had to be here with the england team. because he felt like these guys, he felt that england was bringing the trophy home for the first time since 1966 and wanted to be here. people are flying in and out for every game and we have people who as i sayjust arrived on a plane and the one thing to have in common is this huge hope, it is confidence as well but it is hopedin it is confidence as well but it is hoped in a dream that they will be here in moscow for some time in moscow, back in the russia capital for some time to come. thank you. the 12 boys trapped in a flooded cave system in thailand
7:19 pm
have sent handwritten letters to theirfamilies, to reassure them that they are well. their football coach, who is with them, also sent a note apologising to parents. the team were cut off when exploring the cave two weeks ago. our correspondentjonathan head reports from northern thailand. the 12 boys trapped in a flooded cave system in thailand all—out preparations to bring the young footballers and their coach out of the cave are now under way, say those leading this rescue operation. one of the main priorities is still to reduce the water levels inside the cave, in the hope that they can bring the boy out without having to use full scuba gear. many of the boys can't swim. this rescue operation has always been a race against the clock, but now timing is more critical than ever. they say they want to get the boys out before their health deteriorates and before the heavy rain that is forecast, comes.
7:20 pm
the fear is that more water will rush into the cave, making conditions even worse than they were to begin with. the only way out of the cave remains the way they came in, but it is a dangerous passage. the tragic death of a former thai navy seal delivering air tanks to the cave yesterday underlined just how difficult this evacuation will be. translation: every cave diver volunteer team reaches their limit at chamber three. they cannot go further than that. such a rescue mission has never happened before on this planet. it requires both knowledge and skills of the cave diver. messages were brought out by divers overnight. one of them from the 25—year—old coach who led the boys in there. "i am really sorry," he said to their parents. and promised to do his best to look after them. "please don't worry," say notes from the young footballers. "we are all strong." others requested their favourite foods and pleaded not to be given too much homework when they get out. letters have also been sent in from the boys' parents in the hope they will lift the boys' morale. to their coach they said, "we don't blame you." sophie long, bbc news, tham luang. our correspondent dan johnson is
7:21 pm
following the operation in thailand. it has been raining for the last hour or two here and not too heavily but just as it started the hour or two here and not too heavily butjust as it started the green sheeting was put up around the base where the rescue operation is being run from. it looked like there was more activity and we wondered if the emergency plan was just gearing up into action because we were told yesterday that if it did start raining and a threat that the water levels in the cave would rise, they had an emergency plan to get the boys out as quickly as possible. but if that is not happening they will ta ke if that is not happening they will take advantage of what is supposed to bea take advantage of what is supposed to be a three or four day break take advantage of what is supposed to be a three orfour day break in the weather to spend a bit more time training the boys in the scuba diving equipment and techniques they will need to make it out of the cave. that was the preferred option, if they have the time, if there is not that risk of the water level in the cave increasing they would put a bit more time and consideration into trying to make sure that the boys
7:22 pm
are as comfortable as possible with what is going to be a complex dive, even with a lot of experience. experience cave divers say what they are experiencing in your is tricky and challenging and challenging and that was hammered home by the fact that was hammered home by the fact that one of the dive team lost his life here the other evening. it has been a boost today with the communication between the boys and families. diverse communication they had with their loved ones for two weeks now. dan johnson in thailand. —— the first communication they had with their loved ones. two people remain ina with their loved ones. two people remain in a critical condition in salisbury district hospital after taking ill a week ago. investigators believe the couple may have handled a contaminated object containing the potentially deadly novichok. our correspondent has been the date reporting on the police operation. and has been a lot of activity here and we saw a fire crews in ambulance

7:24 pm
seen anywhere anytime soon and we have seen them in the past half an hour, going door to door and putting notes through to reassure people about what is going on here. but it could be months before we find out exactly what caused those two people to be poisoned with that same nerve agent. allison freeman in amesbury. at least 38 people in nearly 50 others are missing after heavy rain caused landslides in japan. the are missing after heavy rain caused landslides injapan. the torrential downpour caused people to be evacuated from western and central areas of the country. out the meteorology will agency is forecasting record amounts of rains forecasting record amounts of rains for the next few days. has been decades since the central and western areas of japan have seen rainfall as intense as this. the main island have been inundated with muddy water as rivers burst their banks. many of those killed have fallen into and swept away by the fast flowing floods. hundreds of

7:26 pm
pyongyang. state media said the us attitude had been regrettable and said the us secretary of state is making unilateral demands for de—nuclearization. he said there had been progress during his two days of talks in the north korean capital. bbc‘s correspondent has more on the talks. it did not take long for the north korea to start lashing out at the united states. mr pompeo before leaving for tokyo told reporters he thought the nuclear talks were very productive and that now he had a timeline for its. several hours after he landed in tokyo, we heard from north korea's state and news agency that they thought the attitude of the us negotiators were reg retta ble attitude of the us negotiators were regrettable and he thought that americans made too many demands and wa nted americans made too many demands and wanted the unilateral forced denuclearization of the korean peninsula. critics have always warned after president trump and kim
7:27 pm
jong—un have agreed to commit to the denuclearization of the peninsula, that it denuclearization of the peninsula, thatitis denuclearization of the peninsula, that it is interpreted differently between the two sides and that americans want kim jong—un to give up americans want kim jong—un to give up all of his nuclear weapons while mr kim probably does not want to do that because he has been using it as leverage to be treated as equal, to have donald trump sitting down in front of them to have a meeting with him. there were always warnings about it and of course we heard from us intelligence officials saying they had evidence that north korea continued working on its nuclear programme even after the singapore summit. and that is why there was lots of pressure on mr pompeo to get more thanjust lots of pressure on mr pompeo to get more than just words from pyongyang and to get more details about the denuclearization plan. south korean officials have been advising washington to turn tone down the language and make kim jong—un feel
7:28 pm
more comfortable about what he can agree on. but that did not work too well because north koreans seem rather upset after mr pompeo spent two days in pyongyang. for the third timei two days in pyongyang. for the third time i should say as well. mr pompeo was expected to meet with kim jong—un but apparently that meeting never happened and the us delegation had to leave after he held two meetings with kim jong—un's right—hand man. thousands of people across the country have been taking pa rt across the country have been taking part in pride. these pictures were taken outside of the bbc headquarters here in london near oxford street. thousands lined to cheer the processions, which included party floats and soldiers. they are celebrating the lgbt community and will continue over the next few weeks. time to look at the weather forecast right now. good
