BRAZIL VERSUS WALES
-- headline, Daily Prophet, 4 June 2014 (Pm)
Welsh team manager Gwenog Jones exacted her revenge on Brazil’s manager José Barboza in full view of a packed crowd of spectators after her team lost their quarter-final match to Brazil by 460 points to 300.
The two managers have been feuding since Barboza had called her Chasers “talentless hags”, a joke which he says was taken out of context by journalist Rita Skeeter. Healers were able to restore Barboza’s face before the semi-finals (Pm).
Gwenog Jones was prevented from coming into the stadium wearing a "IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN HAITI" t-shirt. Regulations about "manager trash talk" had been specially introduced for this Quidditch World Cup with Gwenog in mind (Pm).
