A Nigerian player, Ado Hadi, with CD Madridejos in the Spanish Terceira division, collapsed and died during his side’s home match against SP Cabanillas on Sunday.
It was gathered that Hadi reportedly collapsed “for no apparent reasons” in the 39th minute of the ill-fated match.
The medical team on the ground at the Municipal Toledo ground immediately came to his aide but efforts to revive him proved abortive as he was later pronounced dead minutes after.
According to report, the 21-year-old Hadi last played in Nigeria with Jigawa Golden Stars.
Until his death, Hadi was one of the four Nigerian players playing for CD Madridejos, a football club, based in Madridejos, Castile-La Mancha in Spain
