Goalkeeper dies after collision with teammate

Goalkeeper and captain of the Lamongan FC of Indonesia, Choirul Huda died after a collision with a team mate during a match at their stadium in East Java on Sunday.

The club and the entire football world have been thrown into mourning after the unfortunate incident. Video footage of the event showed Huda slamming into team mate Ramon Rodrigues in the 43rd minute of the game in the Go-Jek Traveloka league. Rodrigues’ knee had accidentally collided with Huda’s chest in the incident, and the 38-year-old was taken off the pitch on a stretcher after losing consciousness and a medical team at the stadium attempted to resuscitate him.
Huda was taken to the hospital’s intensive care unit and given breathing assistance and cardiopulmonary resuscitation, but his condition deteriorated and he was pronounced dead at 4.45 pm, Doctor Yudistiro Andri Nugroho said in a statement. His fellow players had gone straight to the hospital after the final whistle following their 2-0 win over Semen Padang and supporters later went to his house with candles, according to local media reports.

On their official Twitter page, Lamongan carried “farewell cap” above a photo of Huda. And According to the team’s Instagram page, the club will retire the number one jersey worn by Huda. Huda had played for Lamongan, also known as Persela, since 1999, making more than 500 appearances, and the club described him as “the Real Legend of Persela” in a tribute on Twitter.

Huda leaves behind a wife and two children.
