It is a real drama that touches the world of football. The 26-year-old John Felagha died Sunday August 30, 2020, as reported by Sud Info. “AS Eupen mourn the death of their former goalkeeper John Felagha. The Nigerian player died at the age of just 26. John Felagha was trained at Aspire Academy Senegal and joined AS Eupen in July 2012 “, announced the German-speaking club in a press release. The goalkeeper was spotted by the Aspire Football Dreams project in 2010. Thus, John Felagha had joined the Senegalese branch of the Qatari academy before arriving in Eupen in 2012.

He had only been established twice: in February 2013 against Brussels and at the end of April against Aalst. “He played for AS Eupen’s 1st team against FC Brussels (from the 63rd minute) and against Aalst (90 minutes). In 2013, John Felagha left the club. AS Eupen offers its sincere condolences to family and friends of John Felagha. ”
