hello, and welcome to sportsday — i'm katie shanahan. coming up tonight... drama in madrid as dan evans wins it for great britain to book their place in the davis cup semi—finals. england's cricketers look to secure a big lead against new zealand as the third day of the first test gets underway. and two heroes at chelsea with one now starting a new chapter as tottenham boss. what are the chances of frank lampard ever following in mourinho‘s footsteps? ican i can firmly say no, and you can replay that again in ten years.
we'll start with some good news as great britain are into the semi—finals of the davis cup. kyle edmund and dan evans both won their singles against germany today to spark the celebrations in madrid. craig templeton has all the details. no andy murray again as great britain kept the same team that beat kazakhstan. that made up first that was kyle edmund against philipp kohlschreiber. kyle edmund produced one of his best displays of the season one of his best displays of the season and he picked up where he left off. the serves looking on returnable, his forehand was too powerful. it wasn't long before the first set was his. the germans started the second strongly but edmund broke back immediately with something special. he broke again at 5-5 to something special. he broke again at
5—5 to put himself in front. i—o great britain, job done. up next was dan great britain, job done. up next was da n eva ns great britain, job done. up next was dan evans who had to do something he had done all week, when. a tough ask against a tough opponent but evans could make it difficult to look simple. it was a tight contest and that often means one thing. tie—break. it was nip and tuck but evans tie—break. it was nip and tuck but eva ns ke pt tie—break. it was nip and tuck but evans kept fighting and forcing mistakes, and managed... it's the next one where things started to go awry. it was proving to be the same story again. the german producing a moment of magic to wind the set. it was looking like a momentum was with him and everything he tried was coming. but evans‘ fighting spirit returned and he somehow made this for another tie—break. tie—break that he dominated from start to finish and when his opponent was off target, he had done it. finally a
victory for evans, a semifinal for great britain. this is how much it means. meanwhile, novak djokovic‘s serbia are out of the davis cup, after they were beaten by russia in their quarterfinal. but, it did have it‘s frustrating moments for the world number two. djokovic won his singles rubber to take it to the doubles but djokovic and viktor troicki were beaten by karen khachanov and andrey rublev on a final set tie break. russia will now play canada in the semis. england‘s cricketers are looking to take control against new zealand on the third day of the first test which has just got underway. new zealand began the third day trailling joe root‘s side by 209 runs. they‘ve added six more to that total and with the black caps currently on 150 for 4. and there is full coverage
of the second day‘s play between england and new zealand with the test match special team over on 5 live sports extra right now. the draw has revealed that scotland will face israel in their euro 2020 play—off semi—final at hampden park. that will be played on the 26th march. and if steve clarke‘s side win, they will be face either norway or serbia for a place in the finals. scotland have won three of the four times against israel and are 36 places above them in the fifa rankings. northern ireland will host republic of ireland in belfast. that‘s if both sides win their respective semi—finals at bosnia and slovakia. fulham fought back from a goal down against qpr to move them into 4th place in the championship table. qpr opened the scoring to stun the hosts. aboubakar kamara, scored twice with this winner securing the victory at craven cottage. kamara was brought in to replace the suspended top goal scorer
aleksandar mitrovic. falkirk have become the first team to book their place in the fourth round of the scottish cup with a 4—1 win at linlithgow rose. the amateur side from the east of scotland league did draw level in the first—half, but the league one side hit back to eventually go on and secure a comfortable victory and book their place in sunday‘s draw. now there will be plenty of managers, renewing their rivalry withjose mourinho now that he‘s back in the premier league with tottenham but there‘s one relationship that will be taking on a different perspective this season. frank lampard is now the boss at chelsea, where he won the premier league title under mourinho. and he admits he was surprised to see his old boss at spurs which sparked questions as to whether lampard would have taken the job? ican i can firmly say no and you can replay that again in ten years or whatever you want. no, replay that again in ten years or whateveryou want. no, it replay that again in ten years or whatever you want. no, it would not happen but i think things are different. jose mourinho worked with a lot of football clubs and we have
to respect his right to work. i was here for 13 years as a player, deep feeling for the club and i went to manchester city for a year at the end of my career but chelsea is something very close to my heart hence why i‘m so proud to manage this club and why i would not manage totte n ha m , this club and why i would not manage tottenham, and that‘s no disrespect to tottenham, i have lots of your totte n ha m to tottenham, i have lots of your tottenham and arsenal fans but there arejust some things tottenham and arsenal fans but there are just some things you wouldn‘t do. not because of your feelings about the club but what chelsea has given me over my time as a player and now. and it‘sjust certainly not on my list. welljose mourinho‘s return has certainly got everyone talking. including the man who replaced him at manchester united nearly a year ago — ole gunnar solskjaer. he says his arrival back to the premier league will be a "circus". and has given his reaction to new tottenham managers comments on social media suggesting that the united midfielder, nemanja matic could be reunited with mourinho for third time.
no, that was... that‘s not the part of being boring. when it is like this, you likejose coming back and it will be a spectacle and a circus, and nemanja‘s got a sense of humour. two of the biggest clubs in south america have arrived in peru to find out who will become the continent‘s club champion. the libertadores cup final will also provide south america‘s entry to the club world cup next month which also includes liverpool. defending champions river plate of argentina and the brazilian side flamengo trained on the pitch in lima, ahead of tomorrow‘s match. flamengo are looking to become the first team to complete a league and libertadores double since santos in 1963. that was when pele was in their side. you can watch the final. it‘s live on bbc two tomorrow night. kick—off is at 8 o‘clock. let‘s have a look at some
of the day‘s other sport stories. eniola aluko will leave juventus next month, after almost 18 months with the italian champions. the striker with 102 england caps helped juve retain their league title last term. but says she‘s "excited to be moving back to london, and back into women‘s football in england". tommy fleetwood shot a second round 68, including seven birdies, to move to within three shots of the lead at the world tour championship in dubai. rory mcilroy slipped to sixth place after a disappointing round. in tonight‘s champions cup game, ulster beat clermont in pool 3. this try from john cooney helping them on their way to an 18 points to 13 victory. britain‘s sam bird has won the first race of the formula e season. that‘s despite starting from fifth. well, the envision virgin racing driver finished ahead of the new porsche and mercedes teams. you can watch the second race of the season on the bbc sport website tomorrow.
now, if you‘re scared of heights, or diving into water from a great height, this might be your worst nightmare as we‘re going to end the programme with championship well divers, orlando duke and rhiannan iffland leaping into india‘s famous toorji step well. the pair took it in turns to take the 20—metre dive into the pool, which is 300—years old. duke has previously dived off an iceberg in antarctica and in front of the statue of liberty. absolutley terrying. but an incredible feeling as well i can imagine. that‘s all from me on sportsday. there is of course more sport throughout the weekend. right now though, it‘s time for the papers. bye for now.
hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me is the director of polling company, deltapoll joe twyman and journalist at broadcaster, caroline frost. many of tomorrow‘s front pages are already in. the times leads on jeremy corbyn‘s announcement in tonight‘s bbc leaders‘ debate — the he will stay neutral in a second brexit referendum. the telegraph has the same story — that as prime minister mr corbyn would negotiate a new exit deal with brussels, but then refuse to campaign to leave. after the conviction of the killer of british backpacker grace millane,
—— meanwhile the guardian says boris johnson was attacked by members of the audience. the daily express said the audience. the daily express said the government could have a £1.6 billion boost for research. for bringing a cure dementia closer. and tomorrow‘s i newspaper renames the duke of york the "duke of nothing", as he stands down from his role at his business charity. what did you think of the british audience grilling our mps? what did you think? i thought they were pretty impressive and thatjust shows that when it comes to really putting our leaders on the sport and potential aspirational leaders, that the british government really do know what‘s going on. i think eve ryo ne know what‘s going on. i think everyone says you‘re suffering from massive brexit fatigue but if it means that we are informed, angry in
some places where we feel they role has been pulled over our eyes and not shy to hold our leaders to account. we highlighted the major wea knesses account. we highlighted the major weaknesses that the leaders had. whetherjeremy corbyn and brexit borisjohnson whetherjeremy corbyn and brexit boris johnson trust, whetherjeremy corbyn and brexit borisjohnson trust, whether it is jo swinson on her track record, none performed really well and this will be about to perform is worst. are we surprised as mr cobb and‘s perform that leads. it‘s an interesting stance to take. branding yourself as neutral on something so divisive. perhaps ofjeremy corbyn had done the six months ago or two yea rs had done the six months ago or two years ago, it would have been seen asa years ago, it would have been seen as a real positive and set itself apart from everyone else but now we‘ve seen him dilly—dallying for so many mums desperately not trying to lose those voters and is party, not
trying to lose those lead verges on the north and now it seems as though quite rightly at least two of the papers have said it‘s a man who just cannot make up his mind and so has tried to make a virtue of that. most people are seeing through it for the wea kness people are seeing through it for the weakness it is. this is new information technically speaking in the previous event of the readers debate where it just the previous event of the readers debate where itjust that the previous event of the readers debate where it just that two the previous event of the readers debate where itjust that two of them, he was repeatedly refusing to a nswer them, he was repeatedly refusing to answer a noun them, he was repeatedly refusing to answera noun in them, he was repeatedly refusing to answer a noun in light of that, he has to come out with an answer if not a position and so he adopting this neutral answer where the news that boris johnson this neutral answer where the news that borisjohnson is not trustworthy is perhaps not a new development in the same way. what did you make of the reaction to the neutral line? there was a great collective sigh? i don't think that is an audience reaction, i think thatis is an audience reaction, i think that is the nation reaction. this has been a weak spot forjeremy
corbyn consistently and he has refused to come down on one side of the other. now coming out and saying, no, iwill the other. now coming out and saying, no, i will be neutral, looking as we do at the data, i suspect that we will fail to engage with either side of the argument which will not resonate well with leave voters in leave leaning constituencies that you want to hold onto, nor will it resonate with remainder leaning constituencies in the voters there who want him to come out and unequivocally be in favour of remaining so and attempting to please all the people all the time, you may find that he has pleased none of the people at all. that manifesto was give to other matters, brexit uk part of that. we saw that when it was just the two of them earlier in the week. borisjohnson was the two of them earlier in the week. boris johnson was hammering the two of them earlier in the week. borisjohnson was hammering home the point that he is the man to get brexit done and desperate to pull the discussion away from things he holds dear. many people think his agenda, whether he says he is
