Women Football: Germany And Denmark's Match Postponed Due To Heavy Rainfall

Germany's Euro 2017 quarter-final tie against Denmark was called off on Saturday due to heavy rain resulting in a waterlogged pitch. Adverse conditions meant kick-off between the sides in Rotterdam was delayed by more than an hour, before the decision was taken to postpone the match to Sunday.

Players entered the pitch for a second warm-up an hour after the planned kick-off time as the rain stopped, but the water visibly hampered passes longer than a metre. Ground staff attempted to shift excess water from the field but the conditions led to UEFA announcing the game would be rescheduled.
A statement on UEFA's website read “Due to the unsuitable pitch condition, the referee, in conjunction with the UEFA delegate, decided to postpone the match at Sparta Stadium, Rotterdam. The match is scheduled to be played on Sunday.”
