The tragic incident happened during the first-half of a match between Persela Lamongan and Semen Pedang.

Indonesian goalkeeper Choirul Huda passed away after colliding with a teammate during an Indonesia Liga 1 game on Sunday.

Persela Lamongan player Huda violently collided with his teammate Ramon Rodrigues and onrushing Semen Padang player Marcel Sacramento shortly before half-time.

The goalkeeper immediately clutched his face around the jaw area in agony after the collision and was later rushed to a nearby hospital.

Persela coach Aji Santoso confirmed after the game that Huda, a much-loved figure at the club who had played there his entire career since last 20 years, had lost his life.

In an Instagram message dedicated to Huda, Persela said: "Thanks for the endless dedication and inspiration for Persela, Lamongan and Indonesian football".

The club legend took a heavy knock from his own defender towards the end of the opening 45 minutes as he was rushing out to collect the ball.

It's reported that Huda had died as result of head and neck trauma.

"The loss of Choirul Huda has hit us all hard. We did not have time to see a doctor, only to see his body".
