UEFA WOMEN’S EURO: GERMANY VS DENMARK POSTPONED TO SUNDAY

Germany vs Denmark UEFA Women’s Euro

The UEFA Women’s Euro quarter final tie between eight-times winners Germany and Denmark has been postponed to Sunday due to heavy rains.

The match which was supposed to start at 18:45GMT has been postponed to 10:00GMT on Sunday due to rains that made the pitch at Rotterdam unplayable.

Grounds men worked on the soaked pitch for almost two hours but was still not in good shape for the game as the rains were too heavy.

The game was then called off at 10:00GMT after the rains started again when the team were warming up making it unplayable.

Players of both sides came to warm up on the pitch but all attempts proved futile so the match offficials after thorough discussions called the game off due to sodden conditions.

Former England captain Faye White told BBC 5 live Sports Extra: “It’s the right decision, everyone will be frustrated but you want a good game of football that is not hampered by the conditions.

“It is frustrating that they could not make a decision earlier. It is almost 10 o’clock at night so it could have gone way past midnight if they had started and it had gone to extra-time or penalties.

“You could see after the first warm-up that the pitch was soaked, the dugouts were flooded!”

Earlier, Netherlands had beaten Sweden in the first quarter final game to reach their first semi finals since 2009.
