Rain and football are usually a good mix.

There is nothing better than a wet and windy night fixture to separate the kids from the adults.

However, too much rain and it becomes impossible to play.

See below for an example:

On Saturday evening the second quarter final of the Women's European Championship was due to be played at the Sparta Stadium in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

The kick-off between Germany and Denmark was scheduled for 7.45pm but a torrential downpour put a stop to that.

Officials delayed kick-off by 15 minutes while volunteers and ground staff did their best to get the pitch in a playable condition.

Unfortunately the weather meant that they failed in their efforts - but they did succeed in providing the internet with some top quality content in the process.

The star of the show proved to be this volunteer who tried to score a long-range goal, only to take a tumble.

That reminds us a little bit of this famous moment (sorry, Chelsea fans).

Even Channel Four presenter, Jermaine Jenas managed to get soaked - it hadn't even started raining yet.

The match will now be replayed on Sunday at 11am.

The winner will go on to face Austria or Spain in the semi-finals.
