Hi, I'm Ricky, and this is your Friday morning Newsround.
All this on the way.
Disappointment for England, as the Lionesses are
knocked out of Euro 2017.
Could you be the new planet protector?
And the rare tigers born at a zoo in Germany.
The England women's football team were knocked out of the Euros
last night by tournament hosts the Netherlands.
The Lionesses suffered a 3-0 defeat in the semi-finals,
bringing to an end their hopes of lifting the trophy.
Radio 1 Newsbeat reporter Ben Mundy was watching the action and sent
Newsround this report.
England's run at Euro 2017 is over.
They faced a tough and strong Dutch team.
With home support, it was too much.
The Netherlands scored early in the first half.
Then, they added two further goals in the second.
Chances for England came but went.
The luck we had seen in the earlier rounds wasn't
here in the semifinals.
We worked really hard, we deserved to get as far as we have.
We deserved to get further.
For us, it wasn't our time on the night.
Everyone is trying to stay positive, and looking to work just as hard
to go into the World Cup.
It is the Netherlands fans going home the happier.
The England fans will be happy in the long run,
but disappointed tonight.
However, their team has now made two semi-finalss at the last
two major tournaments, and they have a decent
crop of players.
So, the future is bright for England.
Usain Bolt, known to many as a living legend,
will retire from athletics, and run his last solo race today.
We take a look back at his career.
Usain Bolt's career began the way he starts and ends most races,
a slow start, but dominant finish.
His first appearance at the Olympics was in Athens in 2004,
where he ran his first 2000 200 metre race.
In that one, he lost.
The second Games in Beijing, China, in 2008, showed
the world Usain's skills, he won the 100 metre, 200 metre
and 4x100 metre relay races.
His famous lightning bolt stance became a global symbol.
The 2009 World Athletics Championships proved to be the event
that would seal his status as the world's fastest man.
He set two world records by running the 200 metre
race in 19.19 seconds, and the 100 metre
in 9.58 seconds.
At the London Olympics in 2012, he won gold in three races.
In Rio 2016, Bolt's last Olympic Games, he went
for the legendary triple triple.
And he did it.
Nine Olympic races, nine gold medals.
But the celebrations didn't last long.
One medal had to be handed back after his 2008 relay team-mate
Nesta Carter tested positive for banned
Despite this setback, Bolt didn't let this break his stride,
and he is sure to end his career on a high.
Next, what's your dream job?
A teacher, a dentist, a fire fighter?
Or how about a space protector?
Yep, this is real.

Have you always wanted to work for the US Space Agency?
Do you fancy yourself a bit of a planet protector?
And, importantly, are you good at scaring off aliens?
If you have answered yes to these questions,
your future might just be at Nasa, as their planetary
To defend the Earth from alien life.
Stop astronauts in space ships bringing back and spreading
pollution to other planets.
And to get paid more than ?90,000 for doing it.
Oh, but you need to be an American to apply.
On top of a degree in physics, engineering or maths.
And, of course, lots of experience working on really
important space projects.
Other than that, it is all yours!
Next, four rare Siberian tiger cubs have made their first public outing
at a zoo in Germany.
The two female and two male cubs, who were born in June,
are the first cubs to be born at the Hagenbeck Zoo
in Hamburg in 15 years.
Zookeepers say the new arrivals are healthy, and doing really well.
Next, to a few shoppers who were getting a bit annoyed
with hearing this noise all the time.
Customers at this shop in Manchester didn't realise the noise
was coming from a parrot!
This cheeky chappy is the actual culprit.
He's called Ted, and that was his owner.
That's all from me.
Newsround's back right here in about half-an-hour.
I've got two favourite shows on CBBC,
and my first one is The Next Step,
because I love dancing.
I'm a ballet dancer.
And my second one is Millie Inbetween.
I love it when they argue, and it's really funny.
