Super Eagles Samuel Kalu slumps in Ligue 1 clash

Super Eagles of Nigeria and Bordeaux striker Samuel Kalu is feeling fine after collapsing in the sixth minute of their Ligue 1 match at Marseille, his teammate Remy Oudin has hinted.

Oudin replaced Kalu on 14 minutes – after the 23-year-old Nigerian fell to the ground on a hot evening at the Stade Velodrome, with medics rushing to attend to him.

Having been shielded by his teammates after he collapsed, Kalu was able to get up and walk off the pitch with their help while holding an ice pack against his head.

The striker, who collapsed from severe dehydration during a Nigeria training session at the 2019 African Cup of Nations, resumed playing several moments later but appeared groggy and was eventually substituted.
