増田有華ファンが英語学習に悪戦苦闘する日記

アーセナル,暫定首位で最終戦へ!etc.

プレミアリーグ

アーセナルオールド・トラッフォードでのアウェイゲーム,
0-1で勝利して,マンチェスター・シティを勝ち点1差で
上回り,暫定首位に。これで,最終戦まで,優勝の行方は
決まらないシチュエーションとなりました。
スパーズ,頑張って欲しいです。
うちの環境ではBBC WORLD SERVIE, LIVE SCOREよりも
30秒ぐらい,実況が遅れている感じでした。

なお,女子のFA CUPはマンチェスター・ユナイテッドがスパーズを
下して,優勝しました。宮澤ひなた選手は途中出場,優勝の瞬間に
ピッチに立っていました。おめでとうございます。
