Former Panama Striker Luis ‘Matador’ Tejada Collapses, Dies at 41

Luis “Matador” Tejada, a former Panama striker who was victorious in over 100 caps for his nation, passed away Sunday at 41 years old, according to the Panamanian Football Federation (FEPAFUT).

Playing soccer in Panama City’s outskirts, Tejada was participating in a veterans game prior to collapsing and then transported to a clinic to receive medical attention. He was pronounced dead at the facility, according to local media per ESPN.

It’s being reported that Tejada died of a heart attack.

FEPAFUT honored Tejada, who helped lead Panama to their first World Cup appearance in 2018.

“Synonymous of development and football in our country. We express our sincere condolences. We will never forget you matador,” said FEPAFUT in an X post.

Playing in a total of 108 games for Panama’s national team, Tejada’s 43 goals is the top scoring mark in the program’s history.

In other sports-related deaths, Cuban judo wrestler and former Olympian Maricet Espinosa Gonzalez recently passed away at 34.

Cuban Sports University announced her death on Facebook, saying that they were “in mourning” and in “great pain.” She died last week.

“On behalf of our teachers, workers, and students we extend our deepest condolences to their families, friends, and colleagues,” stated the university.

    We learned nothing from the AIDS epidemic? Why is the blood supply of the United States not being tested? I worry about being in a MVA and requiring a blood transfusion. I may have refused any & all COVID crap and “scientific” BS from Fauci, Biden & the WEF/WHO ~ but their plan is STILL in play. All of us pure bloods may just get a pint or two of infected, tainted COVID19 blood or a pint or two of Pfizer/Moderna/J&J vaxx blood….. So without them forcing anything anymore, their efforts are STILL infecting people.

      I am with you there. I have shared that concern with my family as we are unvaxed, and your concern is mine. They will do what they can. I have no concerns about getting someone’s blood who got covid naturally but did not get the jab but if they got the jab, no way do I want their blood.
