The scene of Lockyer’s collapse seems to have shocked the players of both teams who played with him on the field at the time. The British media “Daily Mail” released an interview with Bournemouth goalkeeper Netu on the 22nd (Korea Standard Time) and reported, “The scene is hovering in his head.”

“I thank God that he is back in his family’s arms in good health,” Netu said at the news of Lockyer’s recovery. “I have to keep going with the Premier League, but when I close my eyes, the scene (of Lockyer collapsing) keeps ringing in my head.” “It was a very scary and really heartbreaking scene. All the players can think from Lockyer’s perspective.”

There are occasional cases where players collapse due to heart attacks. In many cases, they die or cannot continue their careers due to aftereffects.

In 2003, Marc Vivien-Foe, who played as a Manchester City midfielder, collapsed and died in the semifinals of the 2003 FIFA Confederation Cup, holding his heart and participating in the Cameroon national team.

South Korean striker Shin Young-rok also collapsed in a cardiac arrest during a match against Daegu FC in 2011. Fortunately, Shin was able to save his life by securing an advanced sports emergency reserve system and an immediate airway for his opponent.

Christian Eriksen, a midfielder of the Manchester United and Denmark national team, also suffered a heart attack while playing in the group league match against Finland at the 2020 UEFA European Championship. Eriksen was able to continue his career as a football player by inserting a defibrillator.
