Marc-Vivien Foé dies during match

This is some properly sad shit.

Cameroon international, Marc-Vivien Foé, who spent last season on loan at Manchester City has died during a football match.

"The 28-year-old fell to the ground unchallenged in the 72nd minute of a Confederations Cup semi-final against Colombia in Lyon.

He was treated on the pitch before being stretchered off and receiving further treatment, including mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and extra oxygen."

The cause of death has not yet been determined but this has really shocked me.

Foé came to my attention when he was on the verge of a transfer to Man United in 1998. A broken leg scuppered that move and now this.... the poor, unlucky bastard.
