World Cup city that will host England’s clash with Panama suffers spectacular flash-flooding

Streets in Nizhny Novgorod looked like rivers as cars were stranded in the waters.

It follows the England team being hit by a plague of bugs on Sunday during their 2-1 victory over Tunisia in Volgograd.

Fans in Nizhny Novgorod had been enjoying the sunshine on the banks of the Volga river but sudden storm turned the medieval city’s streets into dangerous torrents.

One England fan said: “I put up with pests in Volgograd and now floods over here- it’s like the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

“I just hope we don’t end up with a goal drought next!”

Some motorists were left stranded as the waters rose above cars wheels within minutes and gridlocked the city.

But as soon as it came it disappeared.

“It’s not the first time – we’re used to it,” said one shopkeeper.

The Nizhny Novgorod Stadium has already hosted Sweden’s victory over South Korea on Monday.

Argentina vs Croatia takes place there on Thursday, before England vs Panama.
