FK Egnatia, the Albanian football club grieving the loss of their captain Raphael Dwamena, offered a poignant tribute on the field as the Albanian league resumed its action.
The former Black Stars forward met a tragic end a few weeks ago, collapsing during a league match against KF Partizani in the Albanian Superliga.
Dwamena, who had previously battled a heart issue, couldn’t be revived after the collapse, sending shockwaves through the footballing community.
The incident prompted the Albanian FA to temporarily suspend all football activities for a thorough investigation into how Dwamena was allowed to play in such a condition.
Upon the league’s resumption, FK Egnatia’s teammates once again honored their late captain. The emotional scenes unfolded as the club paid respects by donning tribute t-shirts, and a minute of silence was observed before the game proceeded.
