new relationship between the uk's financial services and the eu. now, the china daily runs with the latest us tariffs on chinese goods. it says china has vowed to retaliate over the threat of a further $200 billion of us tariffs, and would impose its own counter—measures. and finally, a story on the front page of the new york times all about the science behind art. a group of psychologists in the us are trying to crack the mystery of what is art, and why we like what we like. good luck to them. that is all i can say. with me is henry bonsu, broadcaster and international conference host. good to see you. glad to be back. so we have on the desks of the uk front pages, whichjust give we have on the desks of the uk front pages, which just give such a broad spectrum, but it is all the same theme. we have pride of lions, thank you says the daily express. everyone
5:46 am
isa you says the daily express. everyone is a hero. that's it, you know. you watch the game, as did i. a brand—new high—definition television. have you got a waistcoat? i haven't got a fashionable one like gareth's. sport isa fashionable one like gareth's. sport is a metaphor for life, fashionable one like gareth's. sport is a metaphorfor life, it fashionable one like gareth's. sport is a metaphor for life, it allows you to project so much about yourself, about the nation, about diversity, about modernity, and looking at the headlines, heroes, pride of lions, it is about metaphor and dreams, and it could have been so and dreams, and it could have been so different. in the end we were not skilful enough. we had goals in the previous round due set pieces but very few from open play apart from against panama. my concern once we scored the first goal was that we didn't capitalise on the chances in the first half. in the second half we we re the first half. in the second half we were a bit ragged and croatia we re we were a bit ragged and croatia were much more skilful. they looked extremely determined in the second half and it was an absolute nailbiter because you could see they
5:47 am
had so much possession in the second half. and our players were the ones who looked tired. but having said that, though, all the papers seem to be, you know, like the mirror, heroes, we are proud of you all. we talk about the metaphor, but it has changed —— the mirror. something i tweeted after the result was england are out but england are back. england are back, carried on the shoulders of the manager, gareth southgate, who was in such pain 22 yea rs southgate, who was in such pain 22 years ago when he missed a penalty in the european championship. but it is also about a different group of young guys, a lot of them from yorkshire, we keep being told, in the north of england, not going around flashy and divorced from the fans, and people want to project themselves onto that sense of a new, different, more inclusive kind of england. i don't know how long it will last as we try and negotiate racks that but it was a great
5:48 am
divergent from relations with the european union, problems with the economy, the arrival of president trump, and we live the dream for a while. sport has a brilliant way of tearing up the script. that is why the agony is so painful, but it can be exhilarating. lets share some twea ks — — be exhilarating. lets share some tweaks —— let us share some tweaks we had from our viewers. sport is global, is the —— tweets. we had from our viewers. sport is global, is the -- tweets. she has to say that she is amazed by croatia, she thoroughly enjoyed watching the match but the better team won, she feels. an indian viewer says england ignored croatia's threats, playing ina semi—final ignored croatia's threats, playing in a semi—final itself is a good achievement. it is all effort that was created in the european leagues, good show by england. many, like shelley, say england did themselves proud, outclassed by croatia but should be proud of their
5:49 am
achievements. i think that is the general feeling. and achievements. i think that is the generalfeeling. and i am not sure if they will have a parade. in four yea rs' if they will have a parade. in four years' time we will do the parade, when we win! the whole point with this was gareth southgate was managing the expectations, but people ended up living the dream, got carried away. we didn't get carried away, we got to the semi—final. carried away, we got to the semi-final. we still got carried away, because even in the group stage people were saying it was coming home. even the archbishop of canterbury were saying that. everytime we say it is coming home. the guardian is looking at the big event happening today, all about the semi—final yesterday, and in the uk todayit semi—final yesterday, and in the uk today it is about the arrival of us president. the guardian says theresa may nervously awaits his arrival. i would say that is absolutely spot on. absolutely. i would imagine she is nervous about what he might say, what he could do, whether he will meet with boris johnson, what he could do, whether he will meet with borisjohnson, or whatever. he is so unhelpful. this
5:50 am
is meant to be our closest ally, the arrival of the us president is meant to bea arrival of the us president is meant to be a fantastic, unifying thing in oui’ to be a fantastic, unifying thing in our transatlantic relationship. but people are planning to protest wherever they think it might be. there will be the giant trump balloon baby floating above parliament square. some people don't like that because they think it is insulting, but he himself, many say, within the states, has demeaned the office. interesting that a lot of the events he is attending will not be in london. he is meeting the queen at windsor castle, meeting with theresa may at the country resort, checkers, having dinnerthis evening in blenheim palace —— chequers. i don't know if that is pa rt chequers. i don't know if that is part of the management of the event. there will be protests, and trump is notoriously prickly, he is a counter puncher, he has said some very negative things about london, about theresa may being in turmoil, and it is up to the british people whether
5:51 am
oi’ is up to the british people whether or not she will continue in office, so or not she will continue in office, so he is not a reliable partner. the script has been torn up, and that is one of the reasons they are preparing to protect him from the reaction of many of the british people. some people do welcome him here, but an awful lot, especially in london, do not. it is interesting to talk about london, itself, because, sadiq khan, has had a vocal relationship with president trump, and he was the one who allowed that limped to go above westminster. it was kind of his all clear, as it we re was kind of his all clear, as it were “— was kind of his all clear, as it were —— that blimp. was kind of his all clear, as it were -- that blimp. it was trump saying the that the #metoo generation need to be handled with kid gloves. but who is the baby? who is the orange snowflake? i went to the us and they let me in, homeland security left me in. i was not detained by ice agents. security left me in. i was not detained by ice agentslj security left me in. i was not detained by ice agents. i will skip over the financial times. on its
5:52 am
front page it has theresa may ditching hopes of keeping the city tight with the eu after brexit, only because we have unpacked is quite a bit in the business briefing. that is something we will discuss later as well, on our business programming. china daily looks at the news we had yesterday morning. president trump saying more tariffs on $200 billion worth of chinese goods coming into the us could be slapped on in september. we have started the process of china retaliating. as they will, as they will. already when you look at the statistics for foreign direct investment into the us last year, it is down. this is a real impact on businesses, on people'sjobs, and of course china will retaliate. they area course china will retaliate. they are a very proud people, they talk about chinese independence, they wa nt about chinese independence, they want global corporation but they won't take this lying down. everything the us does, the chinese will do, and the global economy will suffer. and we have the latest on
5:53 am
the chinese retaliation, but on the other side it talks about beijing being expected to spur trade. this is about china positioning self as a big global player —— positioning itself. had only joined the world trade organization something like 17 yea rs trade organization something like 17 years ago, and now it is opening up. we can see the chasm left by the united states and it is stepping in gleefully. we are talking about world trade and globalisation, but many countries saying it doesn't play by the rules. lots of countries, trump might say, don't play by the rules. looking at this new york times story, wanting to understand art. why do we need to know? can't we just say we appreciate it, end of story? we have all these psychologists who think they can work out through algorithm is why we like what we like, why we like van gogh's sunflowers over the
5:54 am
landscapes we see in budget hotel rooms. you get a good research grant for doing it. can we spend that money on something else?” absolutely agree. the great thing about art is no one knows why we appreciate it. stop trying to turn it into algorithms and study it. don't think, feel. it is lovely to see you. thank you very much indeed. let me get your view on the final on sunday. who will win it? france will win. speaks french. have a really good day, and we will see you very soon. hello there. temperatures dipped a little bit at the start of this week. wednesday was a warm one, and those temperatures
5:55 am
are going to continue to rise towards the end of the week. some places could be really quite hot during the course of the weekend. now, we also had a few showers around. they'll tend to fizzle out, but we could start thursday morning with one or two across some western areas, maybe north—west england, in towards wales. and there could be quite a muggy start in some of the larger towns and the cities across southern england and southern wales. now, we start thursday off, then, on a rather cloudier note. it looks like clouds will tend to break up, with some sunny spells developing, although eastern coastal areas may remain a little bit cloudy through the day. and then showers will develop, and we think most of these will be across more western areas. now, some could be quite heavy, particularly across south—western scotland, maybe western side of england to the west of the pennines, in towards wales and south—west england. and they'll be very slow moving, if almost stationary, so some areas could get quite a lot of rainfall. and the ground being so dry could lead to some local flooding, so watch out for that. pretty warm, though, where you get the sunshine, especially in the south—east — 26 or 27 celsius. as we head on in towards friday, it looks like the risk of showers and thunderstorms begins to increase, and some of them could be on the heavy side.
5:56 am
friday starts off mainly dry, with some sunshine, although there'll be showers from the word go across parts of north—west england, southern scotland. these will become more widespread across parts of wales, into the midlands, and maybe southern england as well. and like i mentioned, some of them could be quite intense, with the risk of some local flooding. temperature—wise, around 25, maybe 26 celsius, and some eastern coastal areas may hold onto that cool breeze. now, as we head on in towards the weekend, a big area of low pressure will be anchored to the north—west of the uk. this may bring further cloud, maybe outbreaks of rain, to scotland and northern ireland, but it's also going to draw up much warmer air from the near continent. so for saturday it's definitely a north—west, south—east split, with outbreaks of rain across the north and the west of scotland, maybe into the far north—west of england too. for much of england and wales, though, dry and sunny, and turning locally hot in places. we could see 28, maybe 29 celsius in the south—east. on sunday it's a similar picture — breezier, with more cloud from northern ireland and western scotland. with outbreaks of rain, could see a few showers as well pushing into wales, north—west england.
5:57 am
but elsewhere, across most of england and eastern wales, a hot day to come. we could see one or two locations to the south—east reaching 30 or 31 celsius. so for the end of the week it looks like we'll see an increase of showers and thunderstorms for a time, and then it starts to hot up as we head on into the weekend. is the good morning. welcome to breakfast with charlie stayt and naga munchetty. our headlines today: pride, passion and pain. england are knocked out of the world cup by croatia. after the hope, came the heartbreak. england's dream snatched away in extra time.
5:58 am
iam i am gutted. there are no words. we should have won tonight. we could have won this world cup, but next one, that's fine. but gareth southgate says a new generation of heroes will return home with their heads held high.
