Former Super Eagles player Pius Ikedia was admitted to hospital yesterday August 20 in Amsterdam, Holland after he collapsed on the field during a friendly match.
The 36 year old was playing with other former Ajax players during an exhibition match to mark the 50th anniversary of the club, when he suddenly fell. He was revived on the pitch and later taken to the hospital.
“It was a close shave with death for Pius. We only thank God that with proper care, we were not celebrating the death of another Nigeria football star on the pitch.” a top source told AfricanFootball
