Healthy Italian Soccer Player, 24, Collapses with Chest Pains on Field

An Italian soccer match was abruptly abandoned on Sunday after a 24-year-old player with no prior health issues suddenly collapsed with chest pains.

During the game between Roma and Udinese, defender Evan Ndicka fell to the ground in the 72nd minute and was rushed to hospital.

Roma’s medical staff and emergency services advised the referee to abandon the match before taking the player off on a stretcher.

Following his hospitalization, Roma confirmed he was undergoing tests in hospital.

“The team visited Ndicka in hospital,” the post read on X.

“Evan feels better and is in good spirits.”

“He will remain under observation for tests in hospital.”

The Daily Mail reported:

Sky Italia reported how Roma coach De Rossi had asked Pairetto to suspend the game while he checked on N’Dicka – who had stayed down after reportedly suffering a blow to the ribs – in the dressing room.

After coming back out onto the pitch, De Rossi was seen in conversation with his players as they discussed whether to continue the game.

He then spoke to Pairetto and his Udinese counterpart Gabriele Cioffi, who seemed to be very understanding of the situation as the pair embraced.

The incident occurred just months after Premier League teams Bournemouth and Luton Town in the UK suspended their matches after a 29-year-old captain, Tom Lockyer, collapsed without any contact with other players.

It was later confirmed the layer suffered a cardiac arrest and had an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator fitted.
