Miklos Feher's Death Is Most Tragic

Feher began his football career in home country of Hungary with Gyori Eto before he was spotted by Portuguese scouts

From then he moved on to Portugal with FC Porto where he played for the senior and junior team before finally landing in Benfica, and he has making a good trade of his profession until January 25 2004

Miklos woke up just like every other being and was expectant of the day’s result

The 24 year-old must have expressed his excitement for the game and the expected result as they went away to Guimaraes in the Portuguese top flight

The first half in that game kicked off in much as it began; goalless until it entered the second half. The second 45 also ended in the same way the first did, with the two teams still expecting when to score and avoiding to concede

At Ninety minutes, the referee adding three minutes before the he finally called it off, did not know what was to come

In the first minute of the added three, Benfica attacked; though controversially, the ball having crossed the corner-line was converted into a goal. 1-0, Tiago and his teammates were up one goal, and definitely they were in jubilation for the three points

Time ticking away, rain falling heavily and the boys almost exhausted, and tensions still running high; Guimaraes’ attack was foiled, leading to a throw-in for the hosts

Miklos Feher obstructed the speedy throw-in , thereby delaying play and for that he was carded; with a smile he accepted the referee’s punishment, and that was to be the last from him

The next scene was Feher, bending forward and never rose up again; the young Hungarian was battling for breath after he suffered a cardiac arrest and right they, he was pronounced dead!

Feher’s death brought the game to an abrupt end; the referee never blew his last whistle and the player never saw the last minute of the time tick away.
