Indonesian goalkeeper dies after match collision

Persela

The match was completed despite the incident, and Persela ultimately beat opponents Semen Padang 2-0.

Veteran Indonesian goalkeeper Choirul Huda tragically died after colliding with one of his teammates during a league match on Saturday.

The collision with his teammate Ramon Rodrigues occurred when Huda came out of the goal for a ball late in the first half. In the statement, Dr Yudistiro Andri Nugroho said Choirul Huda has suffered major impacts in the chest and the jaw during the collision.

Huda was quickly rushed to hospital, but doctors announced him dead after he arrived.

"Huda was conscious and complained of chest pain before passing out", said a medical officer as quoted by Indonesian newsportal Surya in the New Straits Times report.

Thousands of fans also took to social media in memory of Huda, who had been known to Persela supporters as "One Man, One Club, One Love". "We did not have time to see a doctor, only to see his body".

"He was still breathing when he was brought to hospital", Dr Zaki Mubarok of Dr Soegiri Lamongan General Hospital told Kompas adding the death cause was due to trauma to the head and neck.

So scary - and what's scarier still is the collision was a relatively common one that takes place in so many soccer games.

Huda had been playing for Persela since 1999 - the only club he ever played for in professional Indonesian football.
