    He knew he had a problem though and signed a release to play. Debate will start whether he should have been on the field.

    I just read about this. IT's so very sad. Expectably, SPFC and Sao Caetano players couldn't continue and many players cried. The fans left stunned and shouted his name. The news spread to 7 other Brazilian states which had League games tonight.

    What a tragedy. It's a moments like these that we should all step back and think of how precious human life is. All the rivalry, the trash talk, and then all the needless violence between rival fans... meaningless.

    I catch the occasional Brazilain league match but I don't remember him playing specifically.

    But I am still saddened by the news. May he rest in peace.

    I only hope he died while doing something he truly loved -- playing the beautiful game. My thought are with him and his family.

    It was very touching the moment when all the São Paulo supporters at morumbi shouted Serginhos name, and many of them followed him to the hospital and shouted again in front of the Sao Luis Hospital. Its very sad its happening so frequently. I hope São Caetano and Casas Bahia gives his family all the suport they need.
  10. Sad, Sad news indeed...may his soul rest in peace..

    This is horrible.I was coming back from Salão do Automóvel,and when I turned on the radio,someone said "He's goin to to the hospital..."

    You always imagine something common happening - like eye's problem with Magrão or things like that - but he just died.

    Now Brazilian and Paulistanian press are trying to find a "murderer".Sad,vey sad. :(

    A moment of silence please.......

    Sao Caetano defender Serginho died Wednesday after collapsing during a Brazilian championship soccer match.

    The 30-year-old player likely suffered cardiac arrest, doctor Marco Aurelio Cunha said. The official cause of death was not immediately released.

    Serginho collapsed away from the play 59 minutes into the match against Sao Paulo at Morumbi Stadium.

    Congresso da Fifa no México debaterá morte súbita de jogadores
    da France Presse, na Cidade do México

    Especialistas de medicina esportiva de vários países participarão na próxima semana, em Cancún, no México, de congresso organizado pela Fifa (Federação Internacional de Futebol) no qual se discutirá a morte súbita de jogadores e o doping, entre outros temas, revelou nesta sexta-feira uma fonte do comitê organizador.

    O tema da morte súbita de jogadores terá uma especial relevância neste congresso, que se realizará entre 3 e 6 de novembro próximo, devido à morte do zagueiro Serginho, do São Caetano, durante a partida na última quarta-feira contra o São Paulo, válida pelo Campeonato Brasileiro, disse o médico Nicolás Zarur, chefe dos serviços médicos da Federação Mexicana de Futebol (FMF) e presidente-executivo do encontro.
