Torrential rains, wind and hail threaten to suspend the Spain vs. Russia , a match that was scheduled to take place this Sunday at the Luzhnikí Olympic Stadium in Moscow (9:00 am Peruvian time). “Locally strong rains, storm, hail and wind with gusts of up to 22 meters per second,” said the Ministry of Russian Emergency Situations.
For the time being, it has been decided to close the venue, although it has not been confirmed whether it will be held on Sunday. The Russian authorities recommend “staying in their houses with the windows closed”.
However, for the moment, FIFA has not ruled on the alleged suspension of the game and everything indicates that it will develop normally, unless they decide to change stadium.
It is worth remembering that one year has passed since the worst torrential rainstorm in Moscow, in which two people were killed by lightning. In addition, the hurricane winds that accompanied that storm plucked almost 1,200 trees and damaged nearly a hundred cars
