A longtime goalkeeper of Indonesian soccer team Persela Lamongan died shortly after accidentally clashing with a teammate during their game against Semen Padang.
Football veteran Choirul Huda left his recent game on Sunday on a stretcher, but was announced dead shortly after being transported to a local hospital.
The 38-year-old goalkeeper tried to clear a ball just moments after the halftime whistle, but accidentally bashed his head on a knee during the process, according to CBS. Unfortunately, the veteran of over 500 matches since 1999 did not survive the head-on collision involving his teammate and another player.
