Soccer: Rain delays Germany's friendly in Austria

KLAGENFURT, Austria (Reuters) - Torrential rain delayed the kickoff of Germany’s friendly away to Austria by one hour and 40 minutes on Saturday.

The kickoff was twice rescheduled and the German FA said on Twitter that there would be “a final attempt” to start the match at 1940 local time (1740 GMT) after a pitch inspection by referee Pavel Kralovec.
