The kick-off in England's Euro 2012 game against Sweden in Kiev on Friday night has been put back by 15 minutes to 2000 BST.

The Football Association confirmed on their official Twitter feed the kick-off had been delayed at UEFA's request.

The decision comes after play was suspended for an hour in the earlier Group D game between Ukraine and France in Donetsk because of a thunderstorm and torrential rain.
