Super Eagles Striker Suffers Heart Attack Hours Before Afcon Match

Super Eagles forward, Samuel Kalu, on Friday suffered a heart attack during training in Egypt, just a day before the Nigeria’s Afcon opener.
According to reports, the 21-year-old player collapsed while taking a corner kick during training and was transported to a local hospital. He has since been confirmed ‘okay’ and ‘stabilised’.
Nigeria Football Federation media chief, Demola Olajire confirmed the situation, but added that the Bordeaux winger has been advised to drink more water.
“I have been told Samuel Kalu has been stabilised. He was taken to hospital for tests and he is certified okay. He was dehydrated, they said. Told him he needs to be taking enough fluids,” Olaajire said.
Samuel Kalu has made just five appearances for the Eagles since making his debut in 2018 and has scored one goal in the process.
