The collision, at first blush, did not look especially frightening or dangerous. But Choirul Huda, a popular, 38-year-old goalkeeper for Persela in the Indonesia Super League, quickly clutched his jaw and head, tipping TV viewers and the crowd that something was very wrong. Not long afterward, Huda died in a hospital in Sidorejo in Lamongan, East Java.
