‘Such a tragedy…’→PK blocked goalkeeper dies of ‘heart attack’ ‘shock’
It’s unfortunate and unbelievable that a tragedy like this really happened… The goalkeeper saved the penalty, and he reportedly died of a heart attack shortly thereafter.
According to a recent report by the Daily Star, the 25-year-old goalkeeper died suddenly after making a penalty save.
The accident happened in the Belgian Football League. The club and players were deeply shocked by the sudden death of his colleague, and he is said to be grieving.
The protagonist of the tragedy is Arne Espil, the goalkeeper of the Winkel Sports Team, which ranks 13th in the Belgian Amateur First Division.
He reportedly collapsed on the ground and showed no signs of vitality after making a good save from opposing kicker Dave.
According to reports, he was not 스포츠토토knocked down by a ball in the chest, but was delighted to jump up after saving a penalty kick with a dive.
And the officials at the scene said that something truly unbelievable happened, suddenly falling to the ground. The match was immediately stopped.
