A new baby born in the WESTERN world spends LONGER  in hospital because they are going through medical tests to ensure there are NO LIFE THREATENING ailments

In Africa a baby is DISCAHRGED within the HOUR after birth. NO medical tests. No machines to detect FUTURE LIFE THREATENING ailments.

This is NOT the first AFRICAN FOOTBALLER to die in this way.
Ivorian footballer - Cheick Tiote DIED ON THE PITCH

Cameroonian - Marc Vivienne Foe - DIED ON THE PITCH in 2003

Congolese - Fabrice Muamba had a CARDIAC ARREST on the pitch but survived due to FIRST  CLASS MEDICAL EXPERTISE.

AFRICANS make up only 17% of world footballers but account for nearly 40% of the known deaths.

What of late Friday Okwaraji who died on the field in 1989. He was a Nigerian and played for the Super Eagles. May the souls of the departed rest in perfect peace.
