Thankfully, there were medical experts on the pitch and then the team made preparation as always for a functional ambulance at the stadium.
The good news is that FC Nilayo midfielder, Kabiru Popoola is now stable and has returned home from hospital after sustaining a head injury in the game.
Popoola who has scored two goals this season went down after a head collision and was unconscious for few minutes.
It took the combined effort of the medics from the home side, the standby ambulance provided by the state football Association, players and officials of the two teams to get him back to life.
He was immediately taken to the hospital and the General manager of FC Nilayo, Mr Lekan Kelani confirmed that he was discharged after responding to treatment.
The player himself confirmed that he is okay and appreciated the club management, staff and his teammates for the love and support.
What came to my mind while watching was the need for Nigerian clubs to make it a point of duty to provide well equipped and functional ambulance at match venues.
Maybe Chineme Martins of Nasarawa United would still be alive, but then, it's a wake up call for other teams to be up and doing in all spheres.
FC Nilayo are currently on break just like other teams plying their trade in the NNL
