Ex-Super Eagles star collapses on the pitch

Pius Ikedia

According to Dutch publication Telegraaf, the 36-year-old collapsed during a friendly match involving former Ajax stars on Saturday, August 20.
He was revived on the pitch after several attempts, before he was taken to hospital.

The exhibition match was to mark the 50th anniversary of the Haarlo Sports club and the former Ajax stars were leading 7-2 before the incident.

“It was a close shave with death for Pius,” a top source further informed AfricanFootball.
“We only thank God that with proper care, we were not celebrating the death of another Nigeria football star on the pitch.”

Ikedia famously played for Nigeria between 1997 and 2004. He was capped fifteen times and scored one goal.
