they've won the tournament. one of france's goals was scored by their 19—year—old forward, kylian mbappe, who became the first teenager to score in a world cup final since pele in 1958. this is the scene live in paris, where huge numbers have been celebrating. our paris correspondent hugh schofield has this update. it's a completely bonkers evening in paris, where there seems to be license to do whatever you want — cars are going by with people leaning out of windows, motorcycles going by, people without any helmets on. everyone is going completely football crazy. it all started an hour or two ago... i'm going to resume simply to say that we're here outside the eiffel tower, but across the land in every village and every town and every arrondissement of
every city you will be seeing scenes exactly like this, as this country celebrates its "deuxieme etoile" — second star, two stars on its world cup record and everyone... everyone‘s. .. well croatia fought hard right until the end and their performance earned them a prolonged standing ovation from their fans at the final whistle. the team and their coach are likely to return home as national heroes. our reporter gavin lee is in zagreb where — despite the end result — the atmosphere is one of celebration. croatia have lost tonight, but you'd never know,
because ultimately this is the best performance by one of the smallest countries to ever get to the final of a world cup and, well, what an incredible result. look at this! this atmosphere — of a team that's, well, barely 30 years old, independence after the fall of the former yugoslav republic and many of those stars were refugees during the civil war and now, well, what a moment. we have a team that have made the final. they were a 33/1 outside bet. they were runners up, they beat greece, nobody thought they would get this far and they managed to beat england in the semifinal and when they did, seismologists said... well done... there there was a small tremor. i mean look at this atmosphere. seismologists said there was an earthquake when they beat england. well, tonight it will be louder and it will go on for longer.
look at this atmosphere! the england team have returned home after finishing fourth at the world cup in russia. gareth southgate‘s side arrived back at birmingham airport on a flight from st petersburg. their return was kept low key and — unlike the last time england reached the last four in 1990 — there will not be an open—top bus parade. speaking to the bbc, mr southgate said the world cup had offered the england team an opportunity to build and grow. i think yesterday was a disappointment to end with a defeat, but we were able to put it into the context of the tournament we have had. you know, incredible experience for everybody. and we've learned a lot. we've learned as much from the defeats as the victories and i think the group of players have given everything they have had.
and the best performance for 28 years. so incredibly proud of what they have done. and they are such contrasting emotions, obviously, the disappointment of coming so close, but also the satisfaction with achieving so much. how do you build on both of those? yeah, it's, well it's a good position to build from. because we were aware of a number of landmarks we wanted to hit and barriers we wanted to break through. and it's always better to be looking to build from a position of reaching the last four. so we know there's a lot of work to do. we know we're not the finished article as a team. but also we know we have brought a lot of happiness to everybody and that's been very special. president trump arrives in helsinki ahead of his summit with vladimir putin. in helsinki ahead air force one takes him to finland on the final stage of a tour that's included unexpected assessments of america's allies: i think we have a lot of foes. assessments of america's allies: i think the european union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. now, you wouldn't think
of the european union, but they're a foe. of the european union, russia's a foe in certain respects. of the european union, we'll be looking ahead to the likely tone of the meeting with president putin. to the likely tone also tonight: to the likely tone if allez les bleus! —— allez les bleus! triumph for france as a 11—2 defeat of croatia in moscow sees them become football champions of the world. back home — a nation celebrates — champions of the world. as france claims the trophy for a second time. here, theresa may defends her brexit white paper after a turbulent week — and reveals president trump's advice: and reveals president he told me i should sue the eu. and reveals president sue the eu? and reveals president sue the eu. and reveals president not go into negotiations — sue them! and reveals president and at wimbledon a fourth men's singles title for novak djokovic. a fourth men's singles good evening.
president trump has arrived in the finnish capital helsinki — the venue of his summit tomorrow with russia's president, vladimir putin. with russia's president, mr trump flew in from scotland after a uk visit that ended with him describing the eu as a foe, accusing it of taking advantage of the united states over trade. accusing it of taking advantage the meeting with the russian leader comes just days after 12 russian intelligence officers were charged in the us of hacking during the 2016 election that brought mr trump to power. 0ur north america editorjon sopel reports from helsinki. it's a topsy—turvy world. reports from helsinki. president trump arrived into helsinki tonight, having given nato and european union allies a kicking and theresa may a mauling, but saying his meeting with vladimir putin might well be the easiest of this european tour. with vladimir putin might well be so in the trump world view, who is friend and who is foe?
i think the european union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. now you wouldn't think of the european union, but they're a foe. of the european union, russia is a foe in certain respects, china's a foe economically certainly, they're a foe, but that doesn't mean they're bad, it doesn't mean anything, it means they're competitors. and that sort of language causes deep unease among us allies and some in his own administration. deep unease among us allies and some theresa may wants the us president to raise the use of novichok in salisbury. president to raise the use only two days ago 12 russian spies were indicted for interfering in the 2016 presidential election, so would the president be asking for vladimir putin to agree their extradition? well, i might, i hadn't thought of that. but i certainly i'll be asking about it, but again, this was during the 0bama administration. about it, but again, this they were doing whatever it was during the 0bama administration. the russian president isn't here yet. he's been detained
by the small matter of a football match in moscow. by the small matter so was he ignorant about what his agents were up to? almost certainly not, says the us president's national security adviser. says the us president's i find it hard to believe but that's what one of the purposes of this meeting is, so the president can see eye—to—eye with president putin and ask him about it. eye—to—eye with president putin the summit will take place in the presidential palace behind me. until now donald trump has seemed remarkably resistant to hold russia to account for its interference in the election, and given the choice between believing the united view of the us intelligence services that there was systematic interference, and vladimir putin's word that there wasn't, donald trump somewhat extraordinarily seems to have sided with the russian leader. seems to have sided on three previous occasions, going right back to the soviet era, helsinki has played host to russian—us summits. but in the past there's been a very fixed agenda. this looks like it will be much more freewheeling and that's
leaving many in the west feeling distinctly queasy. and we can speak live tojon in helsinki now. what is on the agenda for the summit? wish i knew! that's the key point about i wish i knew! that's the key point about all of this. nobody quite knows what will be discussed. is there going to be a grand bargain struck between vladimir putin and president trump over the future of the middle east, over the annexation of crimea? will it be more incremental than that? will he raise questions about russian interference in the election and seek assurances from vladimir putin that won't happen in the future? will he raise what happened in salisbury with regard to the novel choke attack which took place which the british out the russians responsible for? —— novichok attack. we don't know. that is what people are concerned about. remember singapore, we had that
conference after the kim jong—un meeting, donald trump announced the americans were going to stop military exercises on the korean peninsula. that was news to the south koreans. it was also news to the pentagon. nobody knew that was coming. soi the pentagon. nobody knew that was coming. so i think there is that deep sense of unease about what might be agreed when the two men meet alone with only their translators present, and there is unease in europe, and there is unease in europe, and there is unease within his own administration. 0ne unease within his own administration. one other thing to say about this, you could easily make the argument that given that donald trump has already put sanctions and tariffs on european goods, has attacked nato, has attacked theresa may's handling over brexit, that in strategic terms vladimir putin has already had a win before the talks even get under way. thanks very much. while the president was playing golf in ayrshire earlier today, the prime minister revealed in a bbc interview that he had advised her to sue the european union over
brexit, rather than negotiate. to sue the european union over theresa may spoke as she defended her plan for a brexit deal which favours close links with the eu on trade in goods. the policy has been strongly criticised by some leave campaigners, and faces a tough test tomorrow in the house of commons. a tough test tomorrow here's our political correspondent iain watson.. the prime minister is coming out fighting on brexit. though her most immediate battles are with some in her own party. at her country retreat chequers, she hammered out a new brexit plan, and then lost two cabinet ministers. she hammered out a new brexit plan, and many more of her mps think shejust isn't being tough enough on brussels. think shejust isn't oh, and so does someone else. think shejust isn't i gave her a suggestion, not advice, i wouldn't want to give her advice. i'd give her a suggestion... i wouldn't want to give her advice. i could fully understand why she thought it was a little bit tough. so just what was this tough suggestion? he told me i should sue the eu. tough suggestion? sue the eu? tough suggestion? sue the eu. tough suggestion? not going to negotiations, sue them, actually, no, no, we're going into... sue them, actually, no, did you think about
that for a second? chuckles that for a second? we are going into negotiations with them. but more seriously for the prime minister, a new plan to have a common rule book with the eu on traded goods has not gone down well with many of her own backbenchers. this week ardent brexiteers worked out to change crucial legislation to scupper it, while some of those who backed remain will try to pull her closer to the eu. some people are saying they want to vote in the trade bill to keep us in the customs union. they want to vote in the trade bill i say that's not acceptable, that's not what the british people voted for, others are saying, well, perhaps we could not have the bill at all. well, perhaps we could not that would be damaging to our no deal preparations, so let's just keep our eyes on the prize here. the prize is delivering leaving the european union. some long—standing leave campaigners say they won't vote down the government's brexit legislation entirely. but they are determined to give it a radical overhaul. brexit is enormously positive. it a radical overhaul. a huge opportunity for the country. it a radical overhaul. i'm afraid the prime minister doesn't see that. and it's why i think
she is a remainer who has remained a remainer. she is a remainer who has so would labour help the prime minister out and back are brexit plan? the prime minister out and back her brexit plan? the prime minister out so would labour help the prime minister out —— and back her brexit plan? the prime minister out —— i've read it a couple of times and quite frankly can't make head nor tail of it. and quite frankly can't make it's theological. and quite frankly can't make it is, sort of, it's a mess. and quite frankly can't make so the answer to the question is fairly simply not that i can see. and a political fallout from chequers continues. today a parliamentary aide at the foreign office resigned over brexit. at the foreign office it's still not clear if the prime minister's new plan will survive intact. if the prime minister's new plan theresa if the prime minister's new plan may faces a testin this theresa may faces a testing time this week at westminster. she wants key legislation on customs pass tomorrow and on trade on tuesday. but long—standing leave campaigners wa nt to but long—standing leave campaigners want to get her to rethink her brexit plan. and here is a matter measure the pressure she is under. justin greening says the brexit plan is too much of a fudge for her even,
and writing in tomorrow's times newspaper she is calling for a new referendum and staying in the eu or leaving would be one of the options. theresa may is walking a political tightrope, i know that isn't overdone analogy, but we will see if she will be able to keep her balance and also be able to pull on the rope. thanks very much. the world cup has drawn to a close in russia, with a dramatic final that saw france beat croatia 11—2 to lift the trophy for a second time. france beat croatia 11—2 to lift president macron was in russia to see the team's triumph — for president putin it was the end of a tournament that gave his country a prominent place in the international spotlight over the course of the last month. in the international spotlight over our sports editor dan roan followed the entire tournament and joins us from moscow. the entire tournament football's the entire tournament world rankings turned upside football's world rankings turned upside down. would the same happen
in moscow today? could croatia, the conquerors of england in their first—ever world cup final triumph over favourites, france? in first—ever world cup final triumph overfavourites, france? in the end it wasn't to be but we got modern classic. it's a sporting occasion like no other. a fixture with appeal that resonates far beyond football. and in keeping with a world cup full of surprises, a final that few had predicted. of surprises, a final russia's put on quite a show. of surprises, a final the tournament a timely boost to the country's image. so would this live up to the last month? france were favourites, and it was the three—time finalist who took the lead, albeit fortuitously. as easy a goal as you will see! albeit fortuitously. mario mandzukic, whose goal ended england's dreams of being here, putting the ball into his own net. england's dreams of being here, not for almost 70 years has a country with such a small population reached a world cup final. but this is croatia, and for the fourth match in a row they then fought back from going behind.
perisic with a super strike! from going behind. but then controversy, goal—scorer perisic seemed to know little about the ball flicking his hand here, but french protest saw a var review for the first time in a final. penalty given. for the first time in a final. antoine griezmann doing the rest. for the first time in a final. france regained the lead! for the first time in a final. these the scenes of celebration in paris. then came the tournament's first real lapse in security, russian feminist activist group pussy riot claiming responsibility for this pitch invasion. pussy riot claiming responsibility but it was the football that was providing the real drama, france scoring in quick succession. that was providing the real drama, paul pogba has the biggest goal of his career! one of the stars of the tournament, kylian mbappe, bendik adjusts one of the stars of the tournament, kylian mbappe, then becoming just the second teenager to score
in a world cup final after pele. france 4—1 up. in a world cup final after pele. france are running away with the crowd! this final had it all, even a goalkeeping howler, but that was merely a consolation for croatia. even they had their way back. a consolation for croatia. —— even they had no way back. a consolation for croatia. and france are world champions! a consolation for croatia. france adding a second title to the one they won 20 years ago on home soil. to the one they won 20 didier deschamps was the captain then, nowjust the third man to win the sport's most coveted prize as both player and coach. this, the moment of victory back in paris. the party under way. victory back in paris. despite the torrential rain in moscow, nothing could dampen french celebrations. in moscow, nothing could dampen france are crowned world football champions! football's top nations struggled at this tournament, but ultimately one of them prevailed. at this tournament, but ultimately russia 2018 had a worthy winner, and a fitting finale. an estimated 90,000 fans packed into afan
