Storms force England men's match cancellation

England's opening match of the Rabo Four Nations Cup has been postponed this evening due to the danger posed to spectators and participants from anticipated electrical storms.

England's men were due to play Germany in a re-run of the 2009 European Championships final, in the very same stadium in the Netherlands.  Unfortunately, due to concerns over safety both of the competition's opening matches, including Netherlands v Pakistan, have been postponed.

The matches have been rescheduled for Saturday, replacing the classification matches. The format of the tournament will now simply be a round robin with everyone playing each other once.
