How would you explain Japan’s historic World Cup win against Germany to the layman?

How Japan Beat Germany 2-1 Was Pretty Incredible, And We Explain How It Was Used Dragon BallWomen’s Wrestling and … Monetary Measures?

when it was announced Japan’s first football World Cup match will be against Germany, everyone almost assumed that Japan’s opening match would end in defeat. Even when Taiyo, a Japanese aquarium otter, predicted Japan will win Most of the reactions were a mix of disbelief and amusement.

so when Japan scored two goals in the last minuteIt was the reversal of the century, snatching victory from under Germany’s nose. After all, Germany has won the World Cup an impressive four times, while Japan is yet to crack the top eight.

Needless to say, Japan’s victory is a great dealand our correspondent PK Sanjoon Was aware of this. But when he returned to school, despite being a member of the football club, He is currently not interested in football.

As a baseball fan, PK hasn’t really dipped his toe into the world of soccer, so while he was certainly happy that Japan won, He really couldn’t understand how important the result really is, He hadn’t even seen the winning game, and he was still unsure whether he would see the next game.

But the general post-match atmosphere in the Soranews24 office (and indeed, throughout Japan in general) was one of excitement and celebration, and PK felt that was missing. So he decided to explain to his co-workers how exciting Japan’s victory against Germany was in a way that he, an ordinary layman, could understand.

PK was first to ask Takashi HaradaJoe is a huge football fan, and a fan of sports in general.

Takashi: “Well, if I use a baseball-related example, it’s kind of like when in 2013, Masahiro Tanaka ended his season with a perfect 24-0 record. That’s a huge deal. Like, it’s not an impossible feat, but it’s certainly impossible. I’d say Japan’s victory beats German rival Tanaka’s 24-0 record in terms of impact.,

PK is shocked. Tanaka was considered almost a god at the time, and his record shocked the baseball world. Was the Japanese soccer team really on the same level as Tanaka?

PK still wanted more, so he turned to Seiji Nakazawa, Seiji was not an expert in sports, so he decided to use a concept he was more familiar with – Dragon Ball.

Seiji: “Let’s see… It’s like Yamcha beat Nappa. Nothing more than that… Looks like Yamcha has defeated Vegeta!,

what?! this is impossible! Yamcha was killed by a Saibman, so how would he have any hope of killing Vegeta?! The Japanese football team has really achieved something incredible!

After this PK asked the wrestling super fan go to hatori for comparison.

Go: “This is kind of an old example, but I’m going to use an analogy from an All Japan Women’s Pro-Wrestling match from the 90’s. This win would go something like Numachi defeats Akira Hokuto! And not only that, but it’s like she just won with the Northern Lights Bomb, and is pinning her opponent with the middle finger!”

▼ For reference, Numcchi is a wrestler with a plastic hoe.

PK is once again speechless. There is absolutely no possibility that Numachi could ever win against someone as strong as Akira Hokuto! And not only that, but with devastating moves like the Northern Lights Bomb! If Japan’s defeat of Germany is so incredible, then this feat of Japan must be amazing indeed!

He was already beginning to get an idea of ​​how incredible Japan’s victory was, but he decided to ask another person – soccer fanatic and our boss, Yoshio – who gave a strange analogy.

yoshio: “Maybe it’s not quite the same, but it’s like if Japan’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product) score was suddenly the highest in the world. Like if Japan beats America it’s unbelievable!!”

, Correct. Well, it certainly is something incredible.

So with everyone’s excellent examples (and some weird examples from Yoshio), PK was finally able to understand just how incredible Japan’s win against Germany was, and now he’s looking forward to their next match against Costa Rica.

Sadly, World Cup otter Taiyo has retired from the world of predictions, so we’ll just have to wait and see how far Japan will go in the competition. Will he be able to make it to the top 8 this year? Or better yet, will they become World Cup champions?

Only time will tell, but you better believe that fresh new World Cup fans will be cheering PK along the way.
