The 2018 FIFA World Cup is over and the champions are France! What an incredible competition it was. Japan did well to reach the last 16, but the Samurai Blues were *desperately unlucky to lose against a very good Belgium side. England reached the Semi-Final stage, which I was happy to see, but lost to a *well-organized Croatia team. Australia had a tough group, but gave France an early scare in their first game.
What are your memories of the 2018 FIFA World Cup?The best memory for me was England beating Sweden. I watched the game at home, and my son stayed up late to watch the game with me. He was very tired, but he was very happy when England scored! The funniest thing was Neymar Jr rolling around on the floor. He rolled around for a total 14 minutes during the whole competition!I think the best goal was scored by Benjamin Pavard against Argentina. The best goal celebration was Michy Batshuayi’s celebration, unfortunately against England. He kicked the ball into his own face. Using *superlatives, why don’t you try to write about your *favourite memories of the competition?
Well done to France, who played some excellent football and deserved to win. The Rugby World Cup will be held in Japan next year. What *lasting memories will be created? I recommend that you go and watch a game. It is a fantastic sport and the crowds are really friendly.
★superlatives: superlativeは「最高の、最上の、無比の、最上級の」などの意味を持つ形容詞ですが、このようにｓがついて名詞として使われることもあります。そして文法用語の一つ、「最上級」(the strongest, the best, the worst…など)も表します。二―ルが皆さんに、この文法「最上級」を使って大会のお気に入りのシーンを英文にする練習をしてみては、と提案しています！
