coming up: i defiant england put six goals past bulgaria, but did it in the face of ugly. bulgaria, but did it in the face of ugly, racist abuse as the match was almost abandoned because of monkey chanting. it is the international language, so will football breakthrough political barriers as a historic match is scheduled to take place in the middle east. the only major title that eludes him. roger federer confirms his bid for the tokyo 2020 olympics. welcome to the programme. we start with the disturbing story that the euro, euro qualifier match between england and bulgaria had to be stopped twice because of racist cha nts stopped twice because of racist chants from the fans. sections of
the stadium already closed because of previous abuse by fans, england's black players were subject to monkey chance and nazi salutes —— monkey chants. some are asking why uefa didn't send the players into the dressing room the second time the cha nts were dressing room the second time the chants were heard, as per the second step in their protocol. our sports correspondence joe wilson step in their protocol. our sports correspondencejoe wilson is outside the stadium. one england supporter has just told me he heard monkey noises from some bulgarian fans from the first minute of this game. england have experienced this kind of thing before, so what has changed? clearly now they have the confidence and determination to report racism, and there was a response. the second piece of the protocol should, could, have involved the game being suspended. it could well be argued that england's emphatic victory is the best possible response. gareth southgate, england manager, has admitted that england has its own issues with racism in football to address, but this kind of thing here
cannot stand. and the response from uefa is now of the utmost importance. this evening a few thousand seats closed off. it made no difference. as for the match itself, marcus rasch had opened the scoring with a stunning strike after only seven minutes. barkley scored twice before sterling added two more either side of the break, and england captain kane completed the rout five minutes from time, 6—0 the final score. you have become the latest team to qualify for next year's finals, after beating the holders in kiev. they want to—i. both goals coming in the first half —— won 2—1. cristiano ronaldo‘s penalty was the 700th goal of his career.
kosovo beat montenegro 2—0 to keep their hopes of qualifying alive. the result means that group a leaders england are not certain of their place in next year's finals. the world champions, france, were held toa i—i world champions, france, were held to a 1—1 draw by turkey in paris. both remain level on points, but only just both remain level on points, but onlyjust ahead both remain level on points, but only just ahead of both remain level on points, but onlyjust ahead of iceland. with two games to go, it is still a 3—way fight for two places. well, in world cup qualifying for 2022, the two koreas will meet in pyongyang on tuesday, the first time the pair have played in the north's capital since a friendly back in 1990, with the two countries still technically at war. south korea departed on monday. this tottenham's star forward son heung—min is included in the squad. the teams are expected to face each other at the kim il—sung stadium. both have won their opening two games in the second round of qualifying in qatar. in group d, saudi arabia have travelled to the west bank
for their qualifier with palestine. many arab countries have historically refused to play in the palestinian territories, as it requires obtaining entry permits to israel, a country many do not recognise. the match marks a change in policy for the saudis, who have previously played matches against palestine in a third country. we are pleased to be in palestine for this game. football needs to be like that, and it is of course a historic game, so it will be a very tough game, first of all because palestine beat uzbekistan in this group already, so the level of this tea m group already, so the level of this team is very good. so we know
tomorrow it won't be easy. it will bea tomorrow it won't be easy. it will be a tough game, but we will be ready for this very important result. vlatko andonovski is set to be the new us women's football coach. he is currently in charge of seattle side reign fc, which includes one of the us stars, megan rapinoe. a former player in his native macedonia, he won the championship twice with his previous side, fc kansas city. jill ellis, who won two back—to—back world cups with the national team, stood down last week. we have arrived at the knockout stage of the rugby world cup injapan, and after the host nation was hit by a devastating typhoon over the weekend, there was emotional scenes as japan secured their spot in the last eight for the first time. patrick gearey looks ahead to the quarter—finals for us. if sport is escapism, then rarely
can it have been more completely, thrillingly so. japanese inhibition left at home. on the streets they we re left at home. on the streets they were a people transformed. the joy of beating scotland to reach a first world cup quarterfinal felt all the more keenly because of the sorrow of the previous day, when a0 people we re the previous day, when a0 people were killed by typhoon hagibis. south africa await, but as hope now turned to expectation injapan, and has that changed the dynamic?” don't think there is any question. we have got through the quarterfinals and we have got nothing to lose now. nobody probably expects us to win again, i think, in town, but we believe. and we're going to go out there and we're going to go out there and we're going to go out there and we're going to play as well as we can and try to beat south africa. it is a mark of how japan have disrupted the old order that even new zealand say they are pleased to have avoided them. their next opponents are ireland, who the all blacks have lost two twice in the last three meetings. not that the irish are talking up chances. they are not
back—to—back world cup winners for no reason. they are that because of the personnel they have, because of the personnel they have, because of the culture they have, and the performances they managed to put together on a very regular basis. so for us it would be, to a degree, a mountain to climb. if ireland face reggie pot —— rugby's version of mount fuji, wales face a lower road. they can't play the all blacks until the final and next they play a far back france team that has hardly impressed so far, all a reward from winning their group. that was massive for us. that was honestly a big goal coming into the competition. the last time we won our pool games was back in 1987, so it isa our pool games was back in 1987, so it is a fantastic achievement for this group. and it gives us a lot of confidence going into this quarterfinal. england have already travelled to stop further than the last world cup, but now it is all change. they have australia in the last eight, a fixture where the
level starts at medium. the cancellation of the last game means eddiejones's cancellation of the last game means eddie jones's team cancellation of the last game means eddiejones's team have had better preparation than his homeland, and australia's head coach is in exactly the shy type stop yes, well, i saw that he was saying that that would be an advantage, and at the typhoon gods were smiling on him. so i suppose they had better win. they have had the best preparation, according to the coach, so they had better get out there and win, if thatis better get out there and win, if that is the best possible preparation. we will see how we go. come the weekend, the soundbites will be background noise. eight teams have worked for four years to win the next three matches. in the land of the rising sun, high noon is near. he has been asked the question for months, and he has finally answered it. roger federer has announced that he will compete at next year's tokyo olympics, when he will be 39. federer has won all four of the grand slams as well as the atp tour finals six times, but an olympic singles gold has eluded him. he missed the rio games
through injury, but did win a gold medal at beijing in the men's doubles. every olympic games has been very, very special for every olympic games has been very, very specialfor me, every olympic games has been very, very special for me, and every olympic games has been very, very specialfor me, and i don't know. i just felt like this very specialfor me, and i don't know. ijust felt like this is very specialfor me, and i don't know. i just felt like this is for me something i would like to do, if iam me something i would like to do, if i am healthy, me something i would like to do, if iam healthy, and me something i would like to do, if i am healthy, and that's why i really hope i will be, and i can't wait. and ijust thought yesterday, asi wait. and ijust thought yesterday, as i basically had everything decided, ijust as i basically had everything decided, i just checked as i basically had everything decided, ijust checked with the tea m decided, ijust checked with the team if it was ok for me to announce it here while i am actually in the city where the lip exist taking place, ijust figured city where the lip exist taking place, i just figured it city where the lip exist taking place, ijust figured it was city where the lip exist taking place, i just figured it was an organic place to do that, so i am very happy to announce it. as long as he keeps winning, he can keep playing. men and women will compete against each other for one trophy at a new event to be hosted by swedish golfers henrik stenson and annika sorenstam next year. the scandinavian mixed will take place in stockholm nextjune, and is co—sanctioned by both the men's and ladies european tours, and will feature 78 men and 78 women in its field.

weather front heading our way, course of tuesday. but there is a weatherfront heading our way, and thatis weatherfront heading our way, and that is going to sweep in soon after. so let's have a look at the forecast, then, through the early hours of the morning. still some rain around in the north—east of the country. so newcastle, perhaps the borders of scotland, edinburgh may be as well, a few spots of rain, but the vast majority of the country i think a the vast majority of the country i thinka dry the vast majority of the country i think a dry and to the night. it is still wet, there are lots of paddles out there, but it won't be raining. and a bit of mist and fog first thing, for example, in the south—west of the country. so a bright day, i think, for most of us in store on tuesday. not completely dry. there is just in store on tuesday. not completely dry. there isjust the possibility ofa dry. there isjust the possibility of a few showers in south—western parts of england, possibly wales as well. but you will notice that the vast majority of the country enjoying that bright weather. there will be some clouds around. 17 in london, 1a expected in the north of the country. and then tuesday night into the early hours of wednesday, we are expecting another weather front to move across the uk. that means wednesday morning it is
looking wet across eastern areas. so anywhere from london through into lincolnshire and eastern parts of scotland, there will be some rain around. but by the time we get to wednesday afternoon you can see the wet comic weather is much better again, and the sun is out. so mid week, in the afternoon, there will be some sunshine. 16 in london but cooler there in glasgow, around 12 degrees. and on thursday we start to see a change. this area of low pressure is expected to roll in off the atlantic. it is quite a large area of low pressure. it is also quite slow—moving, so that means onceit quite slow—moving, so that means once it starts moving in, it will just roll and roll all the way through the rest of the week and into the weekend as well. so on thursday we are expecting increasing winds and heavy, frequent showers across western parts of the uk. on thursday, still, across some central and eastern areas, the weather should be mostly bright. and then by the time we get to friday on the weekend, that low pressure is parked over the uk. strong winds in the
