Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

First I remember was Marc-Vivien Fo but from what I read it's always happened. It's just rare.

Even rarer in Italy since the Italian leagues have a much stricter system of cardiac tests and monitoring than any other league in the world. It helped bring the number of deaths down by a lot but... it still happens. :/

I think the Premier League discussed putting a similar system in place after Muamba's heart attack.
