杂谈

2008年欧洲杯,真可谓是冷门不断,精彩纷呈。

我想欧洲杯的Fans绝对比世界杯多,因为大家都说欧洲杯比世界杯好看,可是原因是什么呢?欧洲杯16强其实也占据了世界杯的半壁河山,南美洲有世界冠军巴西和阿根廷,非洲也有诸如:尼日利亚、科特迪瓦、喀麦隆等经常制造奇迹和冷门的球队,其实,想想真正拖了世界杯后腿的也就是以中国为首的少数几个亚洲国家。

早在欧洲杯之前,就有好多姐妹跟我说过今年不看欧洲杯了,因为没有英格兰。我觉得与其说她们是英格兰的fans,不如说她们是Beckham的fans.可见,很多女球迷看球的目的都不纯啊,大家都是冲着帅哥去的。所以,如果你是女球迷,大家问你喜欢哪个球星,千万不要说Beckham,或是C罗,那样大家会觉得你的段位很低;一定要说一些长得很丑的球员,越丑越好,那么大家就会觉得你的层次很高了,哈哈~~~~

 

下面是一篇外国媒体预览欧洲杯的文章,英格兰又被戏谑了一把儿。有的总结确实很搞笑,而且,原汁原味的英文写作,里面有很多俚语,是英文学习的好材料,大家一起来学学呗!

 

Euro 2008 - A to Z

Austria and Switzerland host the 13th European Championships this summer. Here we give a quirky lowdown on the tournament:

A is for AUSTRIA - The Alpine nation will play host to the final in Vienna. However, with a group which includes Croatia, Germany and Poland, the chances of Josef Hickersberger leading his side there look somewhere between slim and none.

A for Austria (奥地利),奥利利维也纳是本届欧洲杯决赛比赛地,但是,奥地利队要想从包括克罗地亚、德国和波兰的B组出线,希望微乎其微。

事实也增明确实如此,东道主奥地利队小组赛即遭淘汰。


B is for BLATTER - Despite this being the European Championships and under UEFA's jurisdiction, you can bet the FIFA president will stick his oar in about something, about nothing and most probably anything.
B for Blatter (布拉特),尽管欧洲杯在欧足联的地界里举行,不过,国际足联主席布拉特的影响力也是举足轻重的。


C is for CROATIA - Slaven Bilic's well-organised team got the better of England twice to qualify ahead of Steve McClaren's under-achievers. Even without their injured key striker Eduardo, the 1998 World Cup semi-finalists look set to make an impression.
C for Croatia (克罗地亚),克罗地亚在预选赛中两次击败麦克拉伦的英格兰队。尽管缺少了队中头号射手Edurdo, 98年世界杯季军还是会给我们留下深刻的印象。

当克罗地亚遇到了土耳其,会发生什么呢?我想赛前大家都没有想过什么合适的答案,应该来说,克罗地亚和土耳其的1/4比赛,前118分钟都是无聊至极,让人乏味的比赛。这场比赛只看3分钟就可以了,那就是119-121分钟,错过的人肯定会终生遗憾,克罗地亚人经历了从狂喜到大悲的地狱般的落差,早早的跟欧洲杯说再见了。


D is for DIVING - Expect to see the full works from Europe's top masters of falling to the ground, rolling around in agony, only to then jump up fresh as a daisy once the referee has booked the other bloke. Scandalous.
D for Diving (假摔),想要看看欧洲顶级球员摔倒在地,在痛苦中挣扎,直到裁判给另一个球员黄牌/红牌,才又恢复活蹦乱跳吗?

我认为巴西队和意大利队觉得是超级演员,基本上是属于风一吹就能倒下的那种,演技一流,我想退役之后也许可以到好莱坞继续发展。


E is for ENGLAND - Well, it should have been, but for some bizarre tactical decisions by the 'Wally with the Brolly'. Still, at least there is Andy Murray at Wimbledon to look forward to, although proud Englishmen may have to overlook the fact that he is Scottish.
E for England (英格兰),无数女球迷痴爱的英格兰队连预选赛都没进,英格兰拥有无数有天赋的球员,可是,主教练的策略确实让人不跟恭维。


F is for FRANCE - Raymond Domenech's squad may be ageing, but the likes of Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira, Lilian Thuram and William Gallas certainly have the big-game experience needed to go one better than they did at the 2006 World Cup. However, as always, temperament will prove key to Les Bleus' chances.
F for France (法国),Domenech的法国队已经老了,但是他们拥有亨利,维埃拉等一批有经验的球员,可是,能不能走得更远,要看球员的状态了。


G is for GERMANY - Love them or loathe them, you can never write off the Germans. Shame. Joachim Low's young side are still a work in progress, yet they breezed through qualifying and are among the favourites.
G for Germany (德国),无论你喜不喜欢德国队,你都不能忽略他们。勒夫和他年轻的德国队,预选赛表现不错。

尽管德国队跌跌撞撞地从小组赛中突出重围,可是,他们击败了夺冠大热门--葡萄牙队,希望他们能够走得更远。


H is for HIDDINK - Guus the Dutchman out-thought Mr Magoo, sorry McClaren, to mastermind a crucial victory on the plastic pitch in Moscow last October. Despite a dramatic defeat in Israel, you could always rely on England to stuff things up....
H for Hiddink (希丁克), 希丁克随队2007年10月在莫斯科击败了麦克拉伦的英格兰队,期待他能够创造更多的神奇。

希丁克真是太神奇了,太厉害了,一个荷兰人给11个荷兰人好好的上了一课,俄罗斯队3:1击败了荷兰队,爆出欧洲杯开课以来最大的冷门。

 

I is for ITALY - Champions of the world, they may be, but the Italians made hard work of qualifying ahead of the battling Scots. The quality is there to get through the 'Group of Death', which also includes France and Holland - but do they have the necessary bottle? Peroni anyone? Lovely.

I for Italy (意大利),意大利预选赛艰难地击败了苏格兰,又陷入了死亡之组(包括,荷兰、法国、罗马尼亚),他们能够出线吗?

J is for JAN - Vennegoor of Hesselink. The big Dutchman with possibly the best name in the world, ever, which brings us nicely onto the next item...
J for Jan-Vennegoor Hesselink (扬`维尼格尔`海瑟林克),这个伟大的荷兰人也许可以带给我更多的期待.....


K is for KITS - The must-have fashion accessory of the summer. Well, almost. You can't really see much of a demand for Germany's away strip. Yet the French and Italians always seem to look stylish - both on the pitch and around the cafes of Covent Garden.
K for Kits (成套的球迷装备),如果你是真正的球迷,那么这个夏天你绝对需要准备成套的装备。


L is for LEHMANN - You can always rely on good old Jens for a decent story, whether it is for a last-gasp penalty save or to get himself sent off in the Champions League final. May not be Arsenal's number one any more, but you try telling the big German he no longer has what it takes during an interview in the mixed zone. Brave or stupid? Possibly both.
L for Lehmann (莱曼),莱曼,德国国家队/阿森纳的门将,有在点球中的神勇表现,也有低级失误葬送好局的糟糕表现。


M is for MONEY - At the end of the day, that is what football is now all about isn't it? If you managed to splash out the 250 euros (that's about £195 in proper money) for the top-priced tickets at the opening game in Basle, you had better pray your credit card is still 165 euros (£125) shy of its limit, because that is what the cheapest seat for the final in Vienna will set you back. All that to watch the Germans win on penalties, again.
M for money (钱),如果你挥霍了250欧元(约195英镑)购买了开幕式的头等票,那你最好祈祷你的信用卡里还有165欧元(约125英镑),因为决赛门票最低票价就是165欧元。


N is for NETHERLANDS - If they stop arguing amongst themselves about who is the best dribbler, most caring lover or most fashion-conscious in that fine Oranje stripe, then Marco van Basten's boys could just edge out Italy and France. Just don't let them take penalties. The Dutch have a worse record than England, yes, that's right - WORSE!
N for Netherlands (荷兰),橙色军团技术一流,只要他们正常发挥就能够击败法国和意大利,只是,千万不要让他们罚点球,荷兰人的点球甚至比英格兰人更差。


O is for OFFSIDE - Was he active? Passive, or simply standing on the touchline having a chat with the physio? Who cares? If you are on the pitch, then you are 'interfering' with play and seeking to gain an unfair advantage. But you can bet there will be an assistant referee who doesn't agree.
O for offside (越位),无论是主动的,还是被动的,或是你只是站在边线跟队医聊天。可是,谁会在意呢?一旦你“搅乱”的比赛正常的秩序,伺机获得领先位置的时候,一定会有由个人站出来反对--那就是边裁。


P is for PORTUGAL - Even if you are not a Manchester United fan, from Exeter, you can't help but marvel at the skills of Cristiano Ronaldo. The flying winger is arguably the best on the planet at the moment, so expect more silky skills and stepover this summer. Brilliant.
P for Portugal(葡萄牙),无论你是不是曼联的球迷,你一定会为C罗着迷。期待他这个夏天有更令人惊艳的表现。


Q is for QUIT - Several managers are already set to call it day following the finals, and you can bet a couple more will follow in the wake of disastrous first-round exits. What price on Joachim Low again?
Q for quit (辞职),很多球队老板也许已经决定决赛之后马上给勒夫打电话,也许有更多的人会在小组赛淘汰之后就这么做了。可是让我们想想勒夫的价码吧?


R is for REHHAGEL - King Otto, as he is known to his pals, already has a place in football folklore for guiding outsiders Greece to glory four years ago. Once may have been a shock, but surely even those hardened ouzo drinkers cannot expect a repeat performance this time around? Or can they? Make mine a double.
R for Rehhagel (雷格格尔),四年前他带领希腊队创造了希腊神话,不知道他们是不是可以续写神奇呢?


S is for SPAIN - This lot just have to come good one year, don't they? A bit like England, but with more flair, the Spaniards always seem to flatter to deceive. With 2004 winners Greece, Sweden and Russia in their group, Cesc Fabregas and company will be hoping this does not prove to be another one of those years.
S for Spain (西班牙),今年西班牙应该抽到了上上签,跟上届冠军希腊队,瑞典和俄罗斯同属一组。可是,西班牙还是不怎么让人放心,总是象英格兰一样,给我们一种貌似强大的假象。希望法布雷加斯和他的队友们能够证明自己。


T is for TORRES - Fernando has breathed new life into the Liverpool attack this season and could emerge as a rival to Ronaldo for player of the tournament, provided the rest of his team-mates turn up on the day.
T for Torres(托雷斯),西班牙的天才球员,在利物浦有上佳表现,也许是C罗本届欧洲杯最佳球员最强劲的对手。


U is for UNDER-ACHIEVERS - This time someone else will have to take on England's mantle. Take a look at the previous couple of entries for prime candidates. Hopefully, though, it will be Germany. Now wouldn't that make a nice change?
U for Unfer-achievers(让人大跌眼镜的球队),不知道这次谁将接过英格兰的大旗,荣膺此称号。


V is for VIENNA - The 'Tiergarten Schönbrunn' is the world's oldest zoo. Really? How interesting. Home to the final in the Ernst Happel stadium, the place really would go bananas if the Austrians make it that far.

V for Vienna (维也纳),'Tiergarten Schönbrunn'是世界上最古老的公园,Ernst Happel 球场是本届欧洲杯决赛比赛地,我想所有球队都不会希望奥地利队进决赛吧?否则奥地利人不知道要迸发出多大的能量。


W is for WEBB - England will at least have a representative at the finals in the shape of Yorkshire referee Howard Webb. Darren Cann and Michael Mullarkey make up the officiating trio, who will hope to avoid the same blunder as Graham "Three Yellows" Poll at the World Cup.
W for Webb (韦伯),英格兰裁判,在本届欧洲杯决赛圈的比赛中,还有最后一个英格兰人,那就是裁判--Howard Webb. 与Darren Cann, Michael Mullarkey组成的执法三人组,希望他们能够避免犯“三张黄牌“的大错。


X is for EXTRA-TIME - And penalties, which will no doubt settle more than one match this summer. Probably unjustly, as the Germans win, again.
X for Extra-time (加时赛)and penalties (点球),毫无疑问这个夏天肯定有不只一场比赛会进行加时赛或是点球决战。


Y is for WHY AREN'T ENGLAND THERE AGAIN? - Take a look at the entry for 'C'. Anyone for tennis? Or maybe cricket at Lord's? Now we are good at that, aren't we??
Y for Why aren't England there again? (为什么英格兰又没有进入?)


Z is for ZURICH - Last, but by no means least come the Swiss. Great clocks, trains run on time, clean air. Yet with Arsenal reserve centre-half Philippe Senderos as their skipper and defensive anchor, you have to wonder just how far head coach Jakob Kuhn can take them in his swansong. Cloud Cuckoo Land perhaps?
Z for Zurich (苏黎世),瑞士,一流的制表技术,清新的空气等等为人们所熟知。拥有阿森纳球员Philippe Senderos作为他们的防守核心,不知道瑞士队能够走得多远?
