Germany vs Denmark SUSPENDED as adverse weather batters Euro 2024 last 16 clash in Dortmund

Germany's clash with Denmark has been temporarily suspended due to adverse weather.

The two groups of players were initially ordered off the pitch by whistler Michael Oliver and took shelter in the dugout area as the officials awaited further instruction with thunder and lightning battering Dortmund. The match was 35 minutes in when the extreme weather started to turn up a notch. The officials are awaiting further instruction before the last 16 clash can go ahead. TV images showed huge bolts in the sky above the ground at the Signal Iduna Park.

But for now both sets of players have headed back down the tunnel and await the next steps in order to get the Euro 2024 clash back underway. Former Celtic boss and current Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou told ITV: "It has actually happened to me a couple of times, particularly in Asia. I was surprised it took that long to get them off.

"It is one of those you get them back in the room, keep them active and their minds active as much as anything else. It is probably the uncertainty. Once they get a timeframe they will send them out. You give them a natural break. It's a bit like half-time. It will be uncertainty now. You want the dressing room to be calm and get the information relayed to everyone."
