Belgian goalkeeper Arne Espeel has died aged 25 after collapsing during a football game just moments after saving a penalty for an amateur team.

He was part of the Winkel Sport B side, who are playing in the second provincial division of West Brabant in Belgium, against Westrozbeke in the game on Saturday.

His team were 2-1 up when Westrozebeke were awarded a penalty in the second half.

Belgian media reported that Espeel saved the spot kick but dropped to the ground immediately afterwards.

Emergency services attempted to revive Espeel with a defibrillator but he was pronounced dead shortly after being taken to hospital.
