Ligue 1: 'After Eriksen it gave us chills' Bordeaux's Samuel Kalu falls on the pitch techydeed.com

In the first stages of the match, the 23-year-old Nigerian national fainted and fell to the Stade Velodrome floor.

Marseille: Bordeaux striker Samuel Kalu fell on the pitch during a French Ligue 1 match at Marseille, 30 degrees outside.

In the first stages of the match, the 23-year-old Nigerian national fainted and fell to the Stade Velodrome floor.

The Kalu was surrounded by worried teammates who frantically waved their hands at the bench to summon emergency medical assistance.

After several heartbreaking moments, Kalu was able to stand, but Remi Oudin could replace him.

The incident came just two months after Denmark’s Christian Eriksen suffered cardiac arrest in a Euro 2020 match.

“Kalu’s accident gave us chills. It’s always quite shocking for both spectators and players on pitch,” Oudin, who scored in the 2-2 draw, said.

“We are reminded of what Eriksen did at the Euros. Everyone got a little scared. It ended well, fortunately.

According to doctors, it’s just minor discomfort. However, he will be tested on Monday.

Kalu was admitted to the hospital in June 2019 after becoming dehydrated while training with Nigeria during the Africa Cup of Nations.

Vladimir Petkovic, Bordeaux coach, said that he was thinking about the Euro.

“We chose to replace him with the medical team so that we wouldn’t take any risks. These cases are where football is put on the back burner.
