Burkina Faso footballer dies during French cup tie

Ben Idrissa Derme

Former Burkina Faso international Ben Idrissa Derme suffered a massive heart attack and died during a French third round Cup tie in Corsica at the weekend.

The 34-year-old central defender dropped to the floor just after the second half had kicked off and despite the swift arrival of medical services, they were unable to revive him during several minutes of on-field efforts.

Derme, who played for Corsican club AJ Biguglia in France’s sixth division, had a modest career with lower level clubs and had been capped four times by Burkina Faso.
