Morning!

0:00:110:00:12

Hayley here with your Thursday

morning live Newsround update.

0:00:120:00:15

Here's what's coming up today.

0:00:150:00:16

The young women with big hopes

for their footballing future.

0:00:160:00:18

Plus...

0:00:180:00:19

Only dogs allowed!

0:00:190:00:20

The hotel that's perfect

for your four-legged friend.

0:00:200:00:22

Keep watching!

0:00:220:00:25

First, there's a very special

anniversary taking place,

0:00:320:00:35

celebrating 20 years

of the Angel of the North.

0:00:350:00:38

Check this out.

0:00:380:00:42

It's one of the most pictured

landmarks in the UK, the Angel of

0:00:420:00:45

the North.

0:00:450:00:48

If you've ever been

to the north-east of England near

0:00:480:00:51

Gateshead or Newcastle,

the chances are you have seen it.

0:00:510:00:55

And today marks 20 years

since, in the middle

0:00:550:00:59

of the night, the Angel was moved

into place by the side of the A1

0:00:590:01:03

motorway.

0:01:030:01:04

Its body is as long as four

double-decker buses and its

0:01:040:01:07

wings are longer than

a Boeing 757 plane.

0:01:070:01:10

The Angel was made in Hartlepool

in the north-east and it

0:01:100:01:13

is thought 33 million people come

and visit it every year to take

0:01:130:01:16

pictures, selfies, and there have

even been marriage proposals.

0:01:160:01:21

Now on its 20th birthday,

the Angel will

0:01:210:01:25

have a medical to check its joints

are OK so it's ready to stand proud

0:01:250:01:29

over the north-east

for many years to come.

0:01:290:01:33

As spectacular as ever.

0:01:330:01:35

Champions League news now,

and Liverpool impressed

0:01:350:01:37

in their match last night.

0:01:370:01:38

It was the Reds' first

game in the knock-out

0:01:380:01:41

stages for nine years,

and they marked

0:01:410:01:42

the occasion in style.

0:01:420:01:49

A hat-trick from Sadio Mane

helped them to a 5-0

0:01:490:01:51

away win, against

Portuguese side Porto.

0:01:510:01:56

It's a very good one. Exactly as

good as necessary, so, in the end, a

0:01:560:02:05

great result but I think everybody

saw in the game all the moments when

0:02:050:02:10

we were not as compact, but we

scored fantastic goals and scold

0:02:100:02:16

them at the right moment. -- scored

them.

0:02:160:02:21

From Champions League stars to some

young sporting hopefuls next.

0:02:210:02:23

And when you think of big

footballing nations,

0:02:230:02:25

the African country of Chad probably

isn't the first place

0:02:250:02:28

to spring to mind.

0:02:280:02:29

But the country's young female

footballers are hoping

0:02:290:02:31

to help change that.

0:02:310:02:32

Let's meet them.

0:02:320:02:35

These players are part of history,

playing in their country's

0:02:350:02:40

first-ever all women football

tournament. The competition is

0:02:400:02:42

taking place in Chad in the middle

of Africa. Chad is one of the

0:02:420:02:46

poorest countries in the world and

there was a war they're not long

0:02:460:02:51

ago, but football is one of the most

popular sports there and they want

0:02:510:02:57

to get Chad playing as well as other

footballing nations. The sport is

0:02:570:03:03

also getting really popular amongst

women like Stephanie.

I play

0:03:030:03:07

football because since I was a

little girl I used to dream of

0:03:070:03:09

playing football.

This very special

tournament kicks off in the capital

0:03:090:03:18

of Chad, and it looks like the girls

have a lot of support. The number of

0:03:180:03:21

female teams in the country has

increased in recent years, but this

0:03:210:03:25

is the first time something like

this had been organised.

It's been

0:03:250:03:29

very difficult for us to start the

competition because here in Chad

0:03:290:03:33

sport is the least of anybody's

worries, especially for girls.

0:03:330:03:36

People love to do this kind of

activity that they should do.

The

0:03:360:03:43

competition will help people see how

important it is to give women the

0:03:430:03:47

same opportunities as men.

Head online to find out

all about the big challenge that

0:03:510:03:54

CBBC favourite Steve Backshall

is taking on.

0:03:540:03:57

He's a brave one!

0:03:570:04:03

Plus, it's almost Chinese new year

so we've got everything

0:04:030:04:07

you need to know about

the Chinese Year of the Dog.

0:04:070:04:10

What better way to celebrate

the Year of the Dog than by checking

0:04:100:04:13

your favourite four-legged

friend into this place.

0:04:130:04:15

It's China's new five-star dog hotel

which offers cinema,

0:04:150:04:18

swimming pools and luxury rooms

for its four-legged guests.

0:04:180:04:20

Sounds paw-fect!

0:04:200:04:28

There's a multiscreen cinema that

shows dog-friendly films with

0:04:290:04:31

pictures edited especially

for doggy eyesight.

0:04:310:04:34

There is doggy dinner popcorn

and chewy, comfy VIP

0:04:340:04:36

seating.

0:04:360:04:40

It's all part of the five-star

experience you can

0:04:400:04:44

book your dog into in China

a small price and no

0:04:440:04:47

stay is complete without

a

0:04:470:04:50

swimming pool, a massage

and some soft play.

0:04:500:04:53

It's a dog 's life.

0:04:530:04:55

Sounds good, doesn't it?

0:04:550:04:56

Well, here's a guy who'd

love to check in there.

0:04:560:04:58

Flynn is a six year-old bichon

frise dog he is having

0:04:580:05:01

a very good week indeed.

0:05:010:05:02

He's being treated

a slap-up doggy dinner

0:05:020:05:04

after winning the top prize

at a New York dog show.

0:05:040:05:08

Here he is enjoying the best treats

in town at a posh restaurant.

0:05:080:05:12

They served him chicken

pie on a silver plate.

0:05:120:05:15

Lucky boy!

0:05:150:05:18

And they even let him

stand on the table!

0:05:180:05:21

Finally, it's hard to imagine

feeling hot in this cold weather,

0:05:210:05:27

but over in Peru, they're

having a heatwave.

0:05:270:05:30

And just like me and you,

0:05:300:05:31

when the sun comes out these animals

like an iced dessert

0:05:310:05:34

to keep themselves cool!

0:05:340:05:36

Bears are slurping on frozen

fruits like watermelon,

0:05:360:05:38

and these jaguars are even

having their meat frozen.

0:05:380:05:42

It looks like an ice-cream sundae

is the only thing these cheeky

0:05:420:05:45

monkeys have ordered.

0:05:450:05:49

Looks good. That Sean Lock this

morning but don't forget to go

0:05:490:05:52

online to find out more on what's

going on -- that's your lot. Have a

0:05:520:05:59

great day. I will see you later.
