A soccer player who collapsed during a match in Croatia was yellow-carded by a referee for diving, despite the fact he was dead.
32-year-old defender Goran Tunjic, who reportedly had no health problems, collapsed after a fatal heart attack in the 35th minute of a fifth division match between Mladost FC and Hrvatski Sokol, the Croatian Times reports.
The referee yellow carded Tunjic for taking a dive but then realised he wasn't faking and called the medical unit to the field.
The player was taken to a hospital but could not be revived.
"Doctors have tried to help him, but there was nothing they could do", a club representative told daily newspaper Vecernji List.
Head coach Tab Ramos, Josh Sargent and Luca De La Torre address the team's comeback from an 0-2 deficit to earn a point in its opening match at the FIFA U-20 World Cup.
