BREAKING NEWS : France vs Ukraine Match Suspended

BREAKING NEWS : France vs Ukraine Match Suspended

The players are being taken off because of the lightning storm above the stadium. What an odd start. The subs have stayed put, those hardy souls. It really is an incredible storm. The oppressive heat broke just before kick off – during the national anthems in fact – and has been replaced by rain, rain, more rain, thunder and so many flashes of fork lightning that it may as well be a nightclub.

The Donbass Arena is almost empty as most of the crowd hide, not so much from the rain I imagine, but from the threat of the ground being hit by lightning. There are puddles building on the pitch so, if and when the game gets restarted, that’s likely to cause havoc.
