The fixture between Poland and England at the National Stadium in Warsaw tonight has been called off, it has been confirmed.
There was much controversy surrounding the decision, with the pitch clearly waterlogged but the roof curiously left unclosed.
Polish media officer Agnieszka Olejkowska was called out to explain the situation, saying: "We knew there would be heavy rain but we could not 100% predict the downpour. We will have a pitch inspection to decide whether we postpone the game by an hour, to tomorrow or to whenever.
"We have a heating system which, if we close the roof, can dry the pitch in 30 minutes. I know this situation is not very nice, but please wait until the inspection."
Despite the official message, it was clear to all that the game was not going to go ahead, as the roof was not closed and the rain continued to fall on the already sodden turf, and the decision was finally confirmed just before 9pm, almost an hour past the scheduled kick-off time.
The game will instead be played in Warsaw at 4pm tomorrow.
