Players Who Have Collapsed

The match between Highlands Park and Bidvest Wits was filled with drama, but what has only been revealed now is that Tapuwa Kapini collapsed in the changing room at half-time. Sadly, though, this isn't the first time this kind of thing has happened. Can you think of anyone else who did the same?

Let's take a look at who they are…

Tapuwa Kapini
As mentioned, the Highlands Park goalkeeper suffered a collision in the first half of the 2-2 draw with Bidvest Wits, and while he saw out the remainder of the first stanza, he blacked out when in the changing room. Kapini is expected to undergo further tests.

Papy Faty
The Burundian endured two scary moments on the field in the space of a few months. The midfielder's first fainting spell happened in a friendly against SuperSport United, while the second incident occurred against Chippa United. No real reason was uncovered despite all the examinations, and his condition was the reason he was let go by Wits in June.

Zama Dlamini
The Witbank Spurs goalkeeper also collapsed on the field in a match against Baroka in the NFD. After about 10 minutes, he came to and ended up seeing out the rest of the game as all three substitutions had already been made by his coach. Tests were done, but nothing was discovered.

Can you think of anyone else in Mzansi this has happened to?
