Denmark has canceled a training session because of rain at its team camp in Knysna. The Danish federation says a two-day downpour has left its training ground soaked. The players were supposed to practice outdoors Tuesday morning, but worked out in a gym instead.

The winter weather is also creating other problems for the Danes. While the squad returned to Knysna after Monday's 2-0 loss to the Netherlands in Johannesburg, a truck carrying the team's uniforms was held back by snow that closed a mountain pass. The federation says the truck was expected to arrive Tuesday afternoon after a 12-hour delay.
