Polish officials explain roof fiasco

WARSAW, Poland -- Officials in Poland are scrambling to explain why they failed to close the stadium roof and prevent the country's World Cup qualifier with England from being postponed by a waterlogged pitch.

The match has been rescheduled for Wednesday.

Heavy rain on Tuesday left pools of water on the field at the $600 million National Stadium, which has a retractable roof. The roof was left open, despite intensifying rainfall.

According to stadium managers, the Polish Football Association said neither team, nor the FIFA representative or referee, wanted the roof closed, despite the bad weather. They say the field has sufficient drainage.

Wednesday's match is to be held under closed roof, despite sunny weather in Warsaw.
