going to be in our game. so, i feel like all of the clubs, and the presidents and the fan groups and everyone, you know, frankly, are failing these players. england recently played bulgaria in the euro 2020 qualifiers. that game was stopped twice because the racist abuse. bulgaria have been told that they have to play two games behind closed doors, one of which is suspended and fined £65,000, do you think sanctions are tough enough at the moment? if you're ever caught doing anything racist, you should be banned for life and that's just the end of it. maybe it's something — i mean $65,000, that's an absolute joke. in the uk, there are no openly gay, male professional footballers. i wonder, what would your message be to any players who feel that they're not able to be open about their sexuality? it so hard, the leagues and the organisations and the team need to do a much betterjob of setting that environment and setting that precedent prior to the player coming out. because clearly they don't feel comfortable coming out, they're not feeling safe or secure in that.
10:31 pm
obviously, it's well documented that you are involved in this equal pay dispute with us soccer? at what point do you feel you came to realise your own worth? oh, gosh. i mean honestly, we still probably undervalue ourselves. you're worth more than you think and you might as well fight like hell. megan caused political controversy at home when she said she wouldn't go to the white house if the us won the world cup. president trump then tweeted to say, "megan should win first before she talks," urging her to, "finish the job and show some respect". so would she consider a career in politics herself? 0h, definitely not right now. contrary to what the last election taught us about people totally unqualified getting put into office, i don't think that should be the norm. i'll certainly continue to be involved. i'll look forward to seeing what's next. yeah, i know. me too! and whether that's on or off the pitch, there's certainly more to come from megan rapinoe.

it but in between the darkness you could just see the empty seats. with him serving it partial band for the racial chanting. but the fence were allowed and were soon cheering, celtic leaving them all alone in the box. i— 04 lazio. the cloud of 8000 celtic fans travel for this one and it was their turn to celebrate. james forrest pulling their team level. celtic had to think him here too, lazio once again finding the english man in top form. and just like in glasgow two weeks ago, celtic received at their best and last. 0livia, sent them to the knockout stages. it will make it is historic. it is a privilege for me
10:35 pm
to coach these players and they did an unbelievable job behind to coach these players and they did an unbelievablejob behind the scenes, we have a good place at the minute, thejob done as scenes, we have a good place at the minute, the job done as well as qualifying for the new year's is concerned. we have a lot to do domestically but it is an amazing night for the team. their scottish rivals rangers got the job done as well, enjoying the home comforts at ibrox as they beat porto 2—nil. alfredo morelos broke the deadlock mid—way through the second half with his 11th european goal and 21st of the season, before steven davis' deflected shot hit the back of the net to put rangers on top of their group. manchester united also made their way through to the last 32 after a comfortable 3—nil victory over pa rtizan belgrade at old trafford — mason greenwood with the first. anthony martial scoring the pick of the three with this great solo goal and marcus rashford rounding it off, to make sure united

stay top of their group. and wolves snatched victory over partizan belgrade with rauljimenez scoring the winner in stoppage time at molineux, leaving them needing just one point from their last two games to reach the knockout stages. gareth southgate has taken a gamble on including leicester city's james maddison in his squad for their euro qualifiers against kosovo and montenegro. he had to pull out of their last set of matches due to illness, but was then spotted in a casino during the international break. this is also the first time that southgate has spoken since bulgaria were given a punishment of having to playjust one game behind closed doors for the racial abuse that england players suffered during their qualifier. 0ur sports correspondent joe wilson was at wembley. they might be relieved to talk about
10:37 pm
squad tactics, formation even qualification ahead of this international, southgate impressed with the way they have returned from serious injury and he is back in the fall squad. reassurance to see johnstone's name in there. in many ways, still the source of deep disappointment, southgate is still very proud with the way his players dealt with that situation and having seen the players come through such a challenging set of circumstances whether that has intensified team identity and that england dressing room. the best thing that we can do in terms of the message we give to the wide world is to continue to work as a team and see how close the tea m work as a team and see how close the team are and can see the diversity of the team from different backgrounds and how they are just a group of brothers they come together and play a game of football and enjoy each other‘s company and that
10:38 pm
in itself is a hugely powerful message for people in society. also blessed with playing resources, excelling in the premier league and southgate also remembers that when madison was released from the last squad because of illness, he was then pictured in the casino. character, maturity, these are important considerations of southgate continues to build its brotherhood in the england dressing room. let's have a quick look at some of the other stories making the sports news today... batsmanjonny bairstow has been added to england's test squad for the two—match series against new zealand, as back—up for the injured joe denly. bairstow will stay in new zealand after the five—match t20 series concludes on sunday. the first test starts in fhangarei next tuesday. justin rose hit a hat—trick of birdies as he began his quest for a third straight turkish open title. he picked up three shots in the last three holes to finish the day 5—under—par,
