You better believe that markets will be quiet today when the soccer/football match between Germany and the USA kicks off but that could come later than expected.

The game is scheduled to start at noon ET (1600 GMT) but might be delayed after a severe downpour in Recife. Parts of the city are under knee-deep water and referees will test the field an hour before kickoff to determine if it’s playable. In any case, the stadium will likely be half-empty because of the impossibility of getting around the city.
