GENEVA, March 31. /ITAR-TASS/. International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA) together with the University of Saarland (Germany) have started work on a register of cases of sudden deaths, that involved footballers, reports the press service of the organization.
The study is aimed at systematizing the most common causes of such tragic incidents. According to the plan, the register will help clarify regional differences in the causes of footballers' sudden death.
On March 30 during a Ukrainian football championship match between Dnipro (Dnipropetrovsk) and Dynamo (Kiev), the captain of the latter, Oleg Gusev, got a cerebrocranial injury and a jaw fracture. That happened after a collision with the goalkeeper of Dnipro, after which Oleg Gusev fell unconscious.
Dnipro's midfielder, Jaba Kankava, was the first one to run up to the injured player. He rolled the injured to the side and pulled out Dynamo captain's tongue to prevent him from swallowing it. Gusev was then taken to hospital.
