Peter Biaksangzuala had a serious neck injury when he landed and died after 5 days in hospital. The player’s death stemmed from a goal celebration in the match between Bethlehem Vengthlang and Chanmari West. Overjoyed after his home team’s equalizer, he sent off a Miroslav Klose-style santo swing to celebrate. However, due to the improper performance of the monopoly, Peter Biaksangzuala was badly injured in the neck when he landed.
The atmosphere of mourning is enveloping Indian football when a player from this country dies after a salto dance goal celebration.
That player was Peter Biaksangzuala, 23 years old, midfielder of the club Bethlehem Vengthlang FC. He passed away from salto dance during the match between Bethlehem Vengthlang FC and Chanmari West FC last Tuesday. Bethlehem Vengthlang FC lost 2-3 in this match.
Biaksangzuala scored in the 62nd minute with a shot in the box. Tragedy happened when Biaksangzuala danced salto to celebrate the goal. Bethlehem Vengthlang FC players were shocked to see Biaksangzuala collapsed on the pitch after a failed salto jump. The midfielder was immediately taken to a nearby hospital. Doctors said Biaksangzuala had suffered spinal cord damage because of the failed celebration phase.
Although the doctors wholeheartedly saved it, Biaksangzuala still could not escape the scythe of death. Biaksangzuala’s death left boundless mourning for family, friends as well as Indian football fans.
He was in the hospital for 5 days and then took his last breath this Sunday morning. According to the Indian press, Biaksangzuala tried to imitate the goal celebration of the German striker Miroslav Klose but failed. Biaksangzuala’s death will certainly be a warning to players who want to celebrate by salto dance.
Fluttering is a dangerous type of goal celebration. However, there are still a lot of players who like to do this after scoring, including names like Klose, Nani, LuaLua, etc. While taking over as manager of Manchester United, Sir Alex Ferguson even banned the players from celebrating in a dangerous way.
