Swedish player dies after collapsing in match
STOCKHOLM (AP) -- A Swedish football player has died after collapsing during a match in the country's fourth-tier league.
Newspaper Expressen said 29-year-old Victor Brannstrom of Pieta collapsed shortly after scoring in the match against Umedalen on Sunday.
The match was abandoned and Brannstrom was taken by ambulance to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The cause of death was not immediately clear.
Swedish news agency TT says Brannstrom had passed out during a match earlier this year. He took a break from the sport to undergo medical tests but returned after doctors found nothing wrong.
