Evander Sno suffers heart scare on Saturday

NEC midfielder Evander Sno suffers a cardiac arrest in his club's league match with Feyenoord on Saturday.

NEC midfielder Evander Sno was taken to hospital on Saturday after suffering a cardiac arrest in his club's league match with Feyenoord.

The 25-year-old, formerly of Celtic, fell to the ground clutching his chest in the first half of the Eredivisie encounter, but was able to walk off the pitch following treatment by a defibrillator.

"Evander had a cardiac arrest which was followed by a shock from his internal defibrillator," Feyenoord doctor Casper van Eijck told Reuters.

"And the shock is what he felt and that terrified him, which I could see in his eyes on the pitch.

"He was transported to a hospital because the defibrillator caused arrhythmia [an abnormal beat of his heart], so he has to stay there for the night."

Sno has a history of heart problems.
