Seven goals for Liverpool.
The Royals talk mental
health at Newsround HQ.
Plus, what on earth is this?!
Hi, I'm Ricky.
It's Thursday morning.
Welcome to Newsround.
Let's start with this
exciting sport story...
England have become the first
country to have five teams
in the Champions League knock-out
I've been taking a look at last
night's thrilling seven goal game
between Liverpool and Spartak
Liverpool went into last night's
game against Spartak Moscow knowing
they couldn't lose if they wanted
to be sure of reaching
the knockout stage for the first
time in nine years.
So they pulled out all the stops
for a brilliant 7-0 win at Anfield.
Phillipe Coutinho scored a hat-trick
and also won man of the match.
Sadio Mane got
a couple of goals too.
They are the first English team
to score 23 goals in a single
Champions League group.
Even manager Jurgen Klopp
was surprised by the score.
With my assistants I was sitting
outside when it was 6-0
and we were looking at each other
and thought, wow.
How did that happen?
Liverpool's victory means this
is the first time in history that
five English teams have qualified
for the Champions League last
16 in the same season.
Chelsea, Manchester City,
Manchester United and Tottenham
will join the Reds in Monday's draw
at Uefa headquarters in Switzerland.
Liverpool could now face current
champions Real Madrid,
five-time winners Bayern Munich
and Italian champions Juventus.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
have been in Manchester to raise
awareness about children's
They dropped by Newsround HQ to see
how kids feel talking
about their emotions and issues
around mental health.
William and Kate have been
encouraging people to talk more
openly about their feelings
and mental health.
One person who has opened up
about his own mental health issues
is 15-year-old Josh.
Earlier this year he spoke about how
it affected his life in a Newsround
special called Inside My Head.
I'm Josh, I'm 14 and I
love playing hockey.
I'm just like you,
except for one thing.
I've got a mental health problem.
Josh decided to talk about this
to help other kids who are going
through a similar thing.
Having someone else to share
it with just means it
feels so much better.
Today he was happy to chat
to the royal couple about why
he wanted to share his story.
Really well done with the film that
you made, it was so impressive.
You are so articulate I think,
and that's what is so
extraordinary to hear from you.
What I would like to know
if possible, like you said,
you didn't realise you had a mental
health issue, you just
thought it was you.
At the time was it quite normal,
or you didn't really
notice the difference?
I thought I was very,
very different, and then I started
to realise that something was really
wrong, not just different.
Did it take you a long time
to build up your courage
to speak to your father
or was it quite quick?
From when I first started
to feeling anxieties,
to when I told dad was about a year
and a half.
Things started to develop very
quickly, then it got to the point
where it took an hour to get out
of bed every day.
Eventually it reached
the point where I thought
I had to tell someone.
How old are you now?
To have the bravery and courage
to do what you have done
Josh, is very important.
You are a shining example
to everybody, adults
and people your age.
Talking about it might be scary
but actually the process
of going through it is the right
thing to do it makes you feel better
and ultimately everyone is a winner.
Prince William also gave a speech
about the safety of children
when they're online.
He said he's working with social
media companies to try to stop
cyberbullying and wants to encourage
children to be 'smarter,
stronger and kinder'
when they're online.
What we heard is that cyberbullying
is one of those issues that has been
allowed to slowly take root.
An age-old problem had been
and accelerated by technology,
that allowed bullies
to follow their targets even
after they left the classroom.
Firefighters are doing their best
to put out a fast-moving wildfire
in southern California.
It's now hit the main road along
the coast and the Pacific Ocean.
More than 150,000 people have had
to leave their homes in an area
north of Los Angeles.
Hundreds of buildings
have been damaged.
Strong winds are making fighting
the fire really tough.
A feathered dinosaur,
which looks a little
like a strange swan,
has been discovered by scientists.
The weird creature had a long neck,
but also sharp claws,
a tail like a reptile and a beak
lined with teeth.
It's thought to have lived
75 million years ago.
Now if you're heading
to a panto this Christmas -
I bet you've never been to one
like this - on real snow.
Oh no it isn't you might think...
But oh yes it is!
Rather than a stage,
it was performed on a ski slope.
Have a great day at school.
