The 21-year-old collapsed at the First Municipal Stadium during a match on the 2nd of February 2022. The stadium is within a south-eastern suburb of the Greek capital Athens, but the ambulance did not arrive for 20 minutes, The Sun reports, and there was no way to resuscitate the stricken player at the ground.
It was almost the same thing that happened to former Tottenham and Ajax star player Christian Eriksen during last year’s Euro tournament. Eriksen’s own was better because they have the equipment readily available to help the player but in the case of the Greek player, the equipment was not available. The Greek star player died on the pitch before they were able to take him to the hospital.
