Heavy downpour and lightning forced officials to suspend the last Group F match between Australia and Denmark at the FIFA U-17 World Cup just 25 minutes into the game.  Following an hour and a half delay in which the conditions did not improve the Organising Committee for the FIFA U-17 World Cup decided to abandon the match and replay it in its entirety tomorrow, 27 June 2011, at 10:00 (local time) at the Estadio Corregidora in Queretaro.

“The safety of the players and all fans attending the match is paramount and as such the decision was taken to interrupt and then, following consultation with the respective authorities, to postpone the match to tomorrow, ” explained David Chung, Acting Chairman of the Organising Committee.

Tickets purchased for the match will be valid for the re-arranged fixture.
