a political stunt despite the encounter coming ahead of elections and a host of social media in germany international said refusing an invitation to meet with any president would have been disrespectful to his ancestors roots also was heavily criticised for the meeting in both german media and by the german football association. but joining me now in the studio to talk more about. president harrington from the prez. this uni's finally released this statement now why now two months after the meeting you know i think he finally buckled under the pressure he was receiving it's very clear here in germany he's received a lot of criticism even called a scapegoat for the reason germany you know had a premature exit from this year's world cup the president of the german football association richard grendel was urging him to explain his actions and even a step further the general manager of the b.
3:11 pm
the german football association as it's known was saying in hindsight the arsenal star should have been left off the roster altogether so i think that someone close to him got to him and gave him a bit of advice how to maybe alleviate some of this criticism he's been receiving and i think his message you know spoke loud and clear as he stated the obvious there that he's turkish and german is well he has two hearts and i think he expressed himself well in that matter and so do you think that was good advice so to speak out right now do you think that will leave it some of the criticism or will it will it still could again yeah i think it's a band-aid situation you know i think it least it will satisfy the president of the german football association but in all honesty his actions on the team will have to have some success you know because everyone's pretty disappointed that the defending world cup champions crashed out in the group stage you know ms it was ill is up in eighty's twenty nine it's uncertain whether or not he will be on the roster in the next major tournament in the euros coming up shortly so will it

remains to be seen what will happen but. i personally think he'll have to do something really good in a german uniform to you know put some smiles back on the face of all these media people that do the talking on the pitch definitely stay with me for a month because we have some interesting gulf news because the goal for world waits in anticipation today as tiger woods attempts to pull off victory in the british open it would be an incredible career comeback with a former world beater without a major championship since his u.s. open win. ten years ago heading into the final round woods sits just four strokes of leader and defending champion jordan spaeth he climbed into contention after a remarkable round of five under par in yesterday's play. as coming back to you tiger woods used to be a name you know synonymous with success in the world of sports that was many many
3:13 pm
years ago though i mean really really witnessing gins of tiger woods you know he's only forty two years old and when you factor in that third round performance of sixty six the last time he shot under seventy and a major was eleven years ago to the day so this is something this special about that third route he's gearing up to tee off in his fourth and you know looking at the history of tiger woods. he pretty much revitalize the sport of golf and made it a lot more inviting and you know he has fourteen majors for shy of the major chip chip holder jack nicklaus so it's nice to see and i do believe that tiger you know if he's healthy personal issues aside and he's focused all steam ahead he's definitely capable of pulling off a miracle this is the thing though with with comebacks right and certain age athletes come back do you think if he is indeed successful it would give a goal for a proper boost yeah definitely good golf
3:14 pm
a second wind it's needed you know you have a small group of americans that are actually leading the in the open right now but they're not household names the way tiger woods is ok and tiger woods was their idol this younger group of golfers we see now in action and you know getting their fair taste of success you know but i do think it will be great for the sport of golf because people love second chances you know he'll be back to phoenix rising again as long as his body doesn't quit on him because he's had so many surgeries and things like this but as of right now he was quoted saying he feels good he hasn't felt that he's at this control of the golf ball in a very long time so if he has that mindset you know look out and be ready good luck to him thank you very much for your insight thank you. and the official mascots of the twenty twenty olympics and paralympics in tokyo been officially introduced to the world the two carriages made a grand entrance at a ceremony in the japanese capital well organized this revealed plan you name is
