systems that was washington's response to iran's downing of a u.s. spy drone the cyber attack was launched on thursday and reportedly crippled tehran's military command and control systems no lives were lost in the cyber attack but tempers still boiled over in iran's parliament on sunday as persian lawmakers chanted death to america. iran's president rouhani accused the u.s. of throwing oil on the fire when tensions were already running high in the middle east in israel trumps national security advisor john bolton vowed to keep up the pressure on tiran. neither iran nor any other hostile actor should mistake u.s. prudence and discretion for weakness no one has granted them a hunting license in the middle east u.s. president donald trump took

9:12 pm
is always a very sad thing when when a country leaves the world cup so emotional right now the world is against them it's not a nice feeling at all but we don't have to listen to me rant about exactly what happened my colleague tom general has prepared a report for us so let's have a look at what happened now. england were quick to apply pressure and benefited from a back pass from augustine as young 11 players on the goal line couldn't prevent center back steph horton from hammering home to give the lionesses the elite. number 2 came on the stroke of half time and meet through goal found ellen white and the strike a bite full of the tournament. the flag had been raised but a v.a.r. intervention proved white was on the side and the goal was given during furious protests among the cameroon players the mood was not improved at the start of the 2nd half when this stunning strike by iraq and shoe was disallowed for the most marginal of offsides in the build up cameroon were inconsolable. minutes later they
9:13 pm
were 3 nailed down alex greenwood converting a cleverly worked corner to send cameroon packing their tournament ends in violence ian. i mean it's just a matter of centimeters you look at that line they are supposed to make things clear are supposed to take these judgement calls out of the hands of the referee and use technology is that working i mean this is just making it even worse what my opinion it's not working whatsoever i mean in the broader context we still have the same old problems with they are it is wasting a lot of time where the referee checks decisions it's also making these referees actually doubt the decisions they're making and it is also ruining the atmosphere slightly a lot of fans still don't know if they should celebrate a penalty when it's awarded or a goal when it scored because they have no idea if it's going to stand but i think this game is a perfect microcosm if you will of exactly what is wrong and right would be a all because on the one hand it did get everything right within the rules it technically make all right cool what was on side for her goal and the cameroon
9:14 pm
player was offside for her goal so it's rightly disallowed so if it's making the right calls me why the controversy because i think i think when you get to a point where so many cameroon players are so incensed by decision that they think is so marginal and i can certainly see as you just said it's a matter of centimeters if not millimeters that cause the world cup goal to be disallowed she's not relieve seed any actual advantage from being in that position and it's only because someone in a t.v. studio in paris has said let's roll that goal out i can see why they'd be so annoyed and i think the you know both sides the debate were echoed perfectly in the manager's statements after the game phil neville the england coach said that the cameroon players would it were described as well the cameroon coached. that been a miscarriage of justice which just goes to show you how polarizing they are has been one for me it's not working briefly how impressed for you with england not particularly they start the game well as we saw but they go a little bit rattled once cameron players start getting a little bit annoyed and i think they're going to be in for a very hot sauce against norway in the next round well unfortunately technology may be getting a bit in the way of the action there at the cambridge to sports thank you so much.
