A Belgian goalkeeper has died after he collapsed on the field just seconds after saving a penalty during a match on Saturday.

Arne Espeel, 25, was representing Winkel Sport B in the second provincial division of West Brabant in Belgium.

The young shot stopper is believed to have immediately dropped to the ground after saving a penalty shot, according to Belgian media reports.

“We wish Arne's family and friends our sincere deepest sympathy in this great loss.”
