Great fear for those around Andy Delort. The Algerian international striker (32 years old, 15 caps) suffered illness on Saturday evening during the Qatar Stars Cup final between his club Umm Salal and Al-Arabi. Scorer a few minutes earlier, he collapsed on the pitch in the 17th minute of play before regaining consciousness a few minutes later.
The former Montpellier, Nantes and Nice player was able to watch the rest of the match from the substitutes' bench. He joined the Qatari team Umm Salal in July 2023 after six disappointing months with FC Nantes (2 goals in 17 appearances). For the record, his team won against Al-Arabi (4-4, 1-3 tab).
