Super Eagles Player Samuel Kalu Collapsed On The Pitch (Photos)

Super Eagles winger, Samuel Kalu, who plays for Bordeaux in France, collapsed on the pitch during a Ligue 1 clash with Marseille on Sunday August 15.

The 23-year-old Nigerian dropped to the ground just five minutes into their game amid soaring temperatures at the Stade Velodrome. The incident sparked concern for Kalu as players from both sides called for medical attention.

Thankfully, Kalu made a quick recovery and was able to stand on his feets. He was walked off the pitch by his teammates while holding an ice pack against his head but later returned to carry on playing before he was substituted for Remi Oudin.

The Nigerian was given a standing ovation by those in attendance for his brave attempts to play on following his collapse. 

The cause of the incident is not yet known but it is not the first time he has collapsed on a football pitch. Kalu collapsed during the Nigerian team's training session during the African Cup of Nations back in 2019 as a result of 'severe dehydration'.
