最近臉書被世界盃洗版...

是的,聽說梅西和C羅一起回家了...

阿根廷和葡萄牙雙雙出局,被淘汰!

我們先一起看看各大外媒的新聞頭條,



紐約時報(New York Times):

 

Messi Exits the World Cup. Hours Later, So Does Ronaldo.

 

華盛頓郵報(The Washington Post):

 

Messi and Ronaldo won't be defined by World Cup failures, but they couldn't win one alone

 

路透社(Reuters):

 

 

Headline acts Messi and Ronaldo bid farewell to World Cup

 

美聯社(The Associated Press):

 

Messi and Ronaldo Exit World Cup Without Titles

title一詞在 體育比賽中指的是第一名,冠軍”(the position you get by beating all other competitors in a sports competition)

 



你最喜歡哪家的標題呢?

下面我們來看看相關報導,

- -

First, Lionel Messi. Then, Cristiano Ronaldo.

先是梅西所在的阿根廷被淘汰,幾個小時後,是C羅的葡萄牙。

 

In a matter of hours Saturday, soccer's biggest names were knocked out of the World Cup, ousted by better opponents and overshadowed by players of immense ability.

 

in a matter of hours: 這裡的matter指的是大約,左右(表示數量或時間之少)”(used in expressions describing how small an amount or period of time is)

舉個🌰

The interview was over in a matter of minutes.

採訪約幾分鐘就結束了。

 

oust: to force someone to leave a position of power, job, place, or competition 趕下臺,罷免,廢黜;趕走;淘汰

舉個🌰

Last year's NCAA winners have been ousted from the tournament.

去年的NCAA冠軍在錦標賽中被淘汰了。

 

overshadow: to cause someone or something to seem less important or less happy 使黯然失色;使相形見絀;使蒙上陰影

舉個🌰

Karen has always felt overshadowed by her famous elder sister.

凱倫總覺得自己與出名的姐姐相比光彩全無。

具體比賽比分,法國4:3戰勝阿根廷,葡萄牙2:1負烏拉圭:

Messi's Argentina lost 4-3 to France and hours later Ronaldo's Portugal went down 2-1 to Uruguay, leaving the tournament without its two best known and most loved players.

 

go down: to lose or be defeated 輸,被打敗

舉個🌰

England's unbeaten run of ten games ended last night when they went down 4–2 to France.

英格蘭隊昨晚未能延續一連十場不敗的戰績,他們被法國隊以42打敗。

注意這裡一個說法「十連勝」:unbeaten run of ten games

 

 

The World Cup lost its headline acts on Saturday as the game's two biggest stars, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, readied to leave Russia after their teams were eliminated in the round of 16.

 

淘汰還有另一種通俗說法eliminate: to defeat someone so that they cannot continue in a competition (比賽中)淘汰

舉個🌰

He was eliminated in the third round of the competition.

他在第3輪比賽中被淘汰。

兩位巨星的年齡,梅西31C33了:

Given their ages - Messi is 31 and Ronaldo 33 - this could be the last the world sees of the pair, who have monopolized the world player of the year award for the last 10 years, on the biggest stage of all.

 

monopolize: [mə'nɒpəlaɪz] to have or take a large part of sb's attention or time so that they are unable to speak to or deal with other people 占去(某人的大部分注意力或時間);獨佔;霸佔;使無法擺脫

舉個🌰

She completely monopolized the conversation at lunch.

午餐時她滔滔不絕,別人根本無法插嘴。

我們再來看美聯社(Associated Press)對梅西失落之情的刻畫,眼神,雙臂,臉龐,鬍子極具畫面感:



Lionel Messi stared, hands on hips, pain etched across a face once boyish and filled with limitless joy, now obscured by a brown beard and hardened by expectations for his nation unmet.

 

etch [ɛtʃ]這裡指的是(臉上)流露出的意思(if a feeling isetched on sb's face, or sb's face isetched with a feeling, that feeling can be seen very clearly),此外,它還有(尤指在金屬或玻璃上)蝕刻,鑿出的含義。

舉個🌰

He etched his name on a piece of glass.

他把自己的名字蝕刻在一塊玻璃上。



obscure這個詞昨天作為形容詞出現過,這裡作為動詞表示隱藏,掩蓋;使難理解,使晦澀”(to make something difficult to discover and understand)

 

- -

 

1530千米之外的C羅,同樣的,面對比分落後的失落,心中的怒火燃向了裁判的判罰:

Four hours later and 950 miles (1,530 kilometers) away, Cristiano Ronaldo's eyes were wide in anger as he shouted in protest just ahead of the final whistle, once again arguing with a referee. The tirade got Ronaldo a second yellow card that would have suspended him for the next match. No worries, Portugal's World Cup ended with a loss.



tirade: 本意是是長篇抨擊性演說”(a long, angry speech expressing strong disapproval),這裡可以理解為C羅不滿裁判判罰的怒吼

舉個🌰

She launched into an angry/furious tirade about how she had been unfairly treated.

她就自己遭受的不公正對待進行了長時間憤怒的控訴。
