日本 270 - 尼日利亚 100

Japan 270 – Nigeria 100

今天下午,世界杯再次充满惊喜。排名第二的夺冠热门球队屈服于日本队近乎完美的表现,也被淘汰出局。

A World Cup full of surprises yielded yet another this afternoon as the second of the tournament's favourites crashed out of the competition, yielding to the might of a Japanese side that put in a near flawless performance.

这场比赛应该被称作是击球手之间的战争,因为这两个出色的魁地奇国家在处理游走球方面都是名副其实的大师级水平。一面是奥科耶奥朱古精准而有创造力的击打,一面是辰吾本乡标准的动作,证明击球手——一般被讽刺成拿着球棒的暴徒——也可以成为艺术家。

This match ought to be remembered as the Battle of the Beaters, because these two outstanding Quidditch nations put on a veritable master class of Bludger work. The precision and creativity of shots hit by Okoye and Ojukwu on the one hand, and Shingo and Hongo on the other, framed the action, demonstrating that Beaters – so often caricatured as thugs with bats – can be artists, too.

比赛的转折点无疑是本乡的惊人的用力一击,尼日利亚找球手埃奎亚诺扫帚的尾巴被击碎了。就在埃奎亚诺失去控制的时候,佐藤典子趁机突然上升,在一群因救队友而分神的尼日利亚球员中间抓住了飞贼。日本队闯进了半决赛,将会面对保加利亚队。

The turning point of the game was undoubtedly the staggeringly powerful shot hit by Hongo, which smashed the tail off Nigerian Seeker Equiano's broom. As Equiano span out of control, Noriko Sato soared through the middle of the action to seize the Snitch from the midst of distracted Nigerian players intent on saving their teammate. Japan pass into the semi-finals where they will meet Bulgaria.

尼日利亚人骑的扫帚是有争议的霹雳七,这是火弩箭系列的竞争产品。许多专家认为它为了速度而牺牲了安全性。专业的扫帚应该能够经受住游走球的撞击,而调查也已经展开。传言称有一队尼日利亚男巫目前正在前往位于英格兰曼彻斯特的霹雳公司总部,但这尚未证实。

The Nigerians have been riding the controversial Thunderbolt VII, a competitor to the Firebolt series, which many experts feel has sacrificed safety for speed. Professional brooms ought to be able to withstand all Bludger blows and an inquiry is already underway. Rumours that a posse of Nigerian warlocks is currently heading for the Thunderbolt Headquarters in Manchester, England, have not been confirmed.
