Super Eagles Star, Samuel Kalu Collapses During Football Match in Ligue 1

Super eagles star, Samuel Kalu, collapsed on the pitch during a football game between his club, Bordeaux and Marseille in a Ligue 1 match on Sunday.

The 23-year-old player had been preparing to form a defensive wall at a free-kick when he collapsed to the turf in the 25 degree Marseille heat.

After being attended to by Medical staff, he regained consciousness and was allowed to play for 8 more minutes before being substituted.

Concerned team-mates formed a human shield around him, the like of which was seen when Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest during Euro 2020.

The cause of this incident is not yet known but its not the first time Kalu has collapsed. On the eve of Nigeria’s Africa Cup of Nations opener in Egypt back in 2019, he collapsed during training over what was decribed as ‘severe dehydration’.
