The match was immediately halted and the emergency services spent half an hour trying to resuscitate the 25-year-old goalkeeper on the field. The keeper was then also taken to the hospital, but the help was of no avail. The young man had died. The cause is not yet known. An autopsy will follow on Monday.
“The players all showered together after the incident and then we sat down in the canteen,” says Dewerchin. “When the message came that our goalkeeper had died, what an unusually hard blow. I think some players do not yet realize what exactly happened.”
