Just seconds after blocking a penalty, a goalkeeper tragically passed away from a heart attack. The terrible occurrence happened on Saturday in Belgium while Arne Espeel, 25, was playing for Winkel Sport B versus Westrozebeke.

It was decided to call off the seventh-tier match. Espeel’s parents and his brother Aaron, who was sitting on Winkel Sport’s substitutes bench, watched in horror as the terrible images played out.

After the terrible news, the club released the following statement: “Arne played for us since he was a youngster, and everyone genuinely adored him.

“How anything like this could happen to someone so young is beyond comprehension. He had previously been a young man in perfect health. Patrick Rotsaert, the sporting director at Winkel, later continued, “This is a calamity and a shock for us all.

“Arne was a nice guy who was always willing to assist others. For his family and our entire club, in particular, it is a devastating blow.

Eendracht Hooglede, Winkel’s sister club, stated: “We were horrified to read about Arne Espeel’s death. We shall observe a moment of silence in honor of his tragic passing.
