Over the past weekend, an incident occurred on an Italian Serie D soccer field that no one likes to witness and could have ended in tragedy.
In the match between Termoli 1920 and Roma City, which ended with a 2-4 victory for the visiting team, one of the local team’s players gave everyone a terrible scare by collapsing just as he scored a fantastic goal.
Niccol Delmastro concluded a counter-attack with a well-placed shot, scoring a great goal before the worst happened. Right after striking the ball, he collapsed unconscious, causing panic among all those present. His teammates quickly called for medical assistance, not knowing exactly what was happening or how to respond. The player was immediately attended to on the field, substituted, and, for now, the club has not provided information about the reasons behind the player’s collapse, with heat being one of the main factors suspected.
