When you have an outdoor sport like soccer, there are times when the weather can impact the field of play and this clip from a professional soccer match in Japan shows us what happens when professional players have to deal with a wet pitch.
Last Saturday, a J-League match between FC Tokyo and Vissel Kobe had to be played despite a massive rainstorm that happened the night before which caused the field to become waterlogged in certain points.
The below video is evidence enough that the match probably should have been called:
The match ended with Vissel Kobe winning by the score of 1-0 but it is clear that precipitation was the true winner at the end of the day.
