Sad news from the tournament in Albania. When Raphael Dwamena’s KF Egnatia squad faced KF Partizani Tiranë, he lost his life. Suddenly, on the brink of his team’s penalty area, the Ghanaian striker fell and the ball was ready to be put back into play. He was taken to the rescue by physicians, teammates, opponents, and the on-site rescue crew. Despite efforts at resuscitation, he was declared dead a few seconds later in vain. At the age of 28, the Ghanaian was. All of the league games slated for this weekend have been canceled and rescheduled at a later time in light of this news.
