When footballers play on the field, their goal is to gain a win and to push their teams, clubs or nations, into glory.

However, players have been killed on the ground either because of injury in the game or due to a detected discomfort that cannot manage game pressure. In some situations, the players become ill at the pitch, which is deadly.

Some players such as Cheick Tioté Ivorians and Moïse Brou Apanga, Aseged Tesfaye Ethiopians, and Gofaone Tyro of Botswana died in training after serious heart attacks.

1) Marc-Vivien Foe

In the midst of a game held between his country of Cameroon and Columbia in the FIFA Confederation Cup, Marc-Vivien Foe had been heart attacked on 26 June 2003. The health officials in the team attempted 45 minutes to revive him, but they did not succeed. At the age of 28 Foe was transmitted to the hospital. The incident led to effective testing and treatment of heart conditions, including training of doctors.


2) Samuel Okwaraji 

Nigeria actively participated in a World Cup competition in 1989 against Angola. Samuel Okwaraji settled in the field in the 77th minute and died. The 24-year-old showed an irregular heartbeat and hypertension.


3.) Victor Omogbehin

In August 2012, a Nigerian, Victor Omogbehin played his Ilford and Lowestoft Town FC League match in London. He fell on the ground and died.


4) David Oneya


5) Patrick Ekeng

In the second half, Ekeng, a Cameroonian national, came to play Viitorul Constan Ali in May 2015 as a substitute. He was evidently exhausted and collapsed a few minutes into the game. He rushed to the hospital but two hours later was reported dead.
