Heavy rain and threat of thunder and lightning has caused the match to be stopped after the referee, Dutchman Bjorn Kuipers ruled that it was unfit for the match to continue.
Only five minutes had been played by the time the match was suspended.
Apparently, the Meteorological department in the region termed it an electrical storm and thus the referee has taken the players off the field for safety seasons.
The match was being played at the Donbas Arena in Donetsk, Ukraine.
The match was the first of the two group games, with England facing off with Sweden in the second group game later in the day.
