As Fabrice Muamba was collapsing last weekend at White Hart Lane, almost the same scenario was equally occurring miles across the sea in Cameroon.

In one of the match day nine encounters of the Cameroon Pofessional League that was underway between Sable of Batié and Scorpion of Be, it is a certain Ako from the host team who collapsed and almost gave up the ghost. According to, Ako who is a player of Sable of Batié collapsed at the 62nd minute after falling from an aerial duel with an opponent. It needed the intervention of medical officials on the pitch and the Mbouda district hospital to save the player’s life who had almost swallowed his tongue. This would have been another tragedy befalling Cameroon football after a player drowned two weeks ago in the river Wouri.
