At 10:25 p.m. local time, the game resumed. As players ran around the pitch, excess water flew off the ground and around their feet, causing extremely slippery and soggy conditions.

In a strange moment of the match, a streaker turned the field into a Slip and Slide as he ran onto the field, creating a hilarious situation and he and security tumbled across the soggy pitch. The invader was later apprehended by security. 

Chile beat Colombia 2-0 to advance to the finals in New Jersey on Sunday where they will play Argentina.
