Ghana striker Dwamena collapses during match in ‘unfortunate tragedy for football’…ends up dead at 28

Former Ghana international striker Raphael Dwamena has died at the age of 28.
The Ghana Football Association announced the death of Dwamena, who played for Albanian club Egnatia Rogozine, on Nov. 12 (KST).

“Raphael truly cared about the Ghana national team and we will never forget his dedication,” the federation said in a statement.
According to US broadcaster CNN, the cause of Dwamena’s death is not yet known.

However, video footage showed Dwamena collapsing in the 24th minute of the first leg of an Albanian first division match between Egnatia and Partizani on November 11.

The video, shared on social media, shows players from both teams rushing to Dwamena’s aid after he collapsed.

Dwamena was taken to the hospital in an ambulance.
