Rain stops play in Sweden v Chile

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 160

The women's World Cup match between Chile and Sweden in Rennes on Tuesday was halted in the second half with conditions deteriorating as a violent storm erupted.

Torrential rain had been falling for around a quarter of an hour amid a threat of thunderstorms when the Mexican referee, Lucila Venegas, decided to take the players off in the 72nd minute with the score still 0-0.

The teams are in Group F along with holders the United States and Thailand, who meet later in Reims.
