According to Italian reporter Gianluca Di Marzio, who posted on X on November 11, 2023, the Ghanaian striker suffered a heart seizure and fainted on the pitch in the 23rd minute.


The team doctors rushed to the field but their effort to save his life proved futile.

Dwamena has been playing with an implanted defibrillator since 2020 when he suffered a heart seizure for the first time.
