Samuel Kalu, a standout for the Super Eagles, passes out during a Ligue 1 game

Samuel Kalu, a winger for Bordeaux, passed out on the field just five minutes into their Sunday night Ligue 1 match against Marseille.

After obtaining treatment from the medical personnel, Kalu was permitted to play.

The Super Eagles star, though, was removed eight minutes later.

When he collapsed to the ground, the 23-year-old was getting ready to create a defensive wall for a free kick.

Similar to what was observed when Denmark playmaker, Christian Eriksen, experienced a heart collapse during Euro 2020, worried teammates created a human barrier around him.

After being resurrected, Kalu showed signs of fatigue before being forced to leave the game and being replaced by Remi Oudin.

At Stade Velodrome, opposition supporters rose to applaud him.
