Curacao player Pieter dies after cardiac arrest

Generic
Curacao reserve goalkeeper Jairzinho Pieter has died after suffering a cardiac arrest.

Curacao reserve goalkeeper Jairzinho Pieter died after suffering a cardiac arrest on Monday in Haiti while on international duty.

Pieter, 31, felt unwell and passed away in the early hours of Monday morning at the Marriott Hotel in Port-au-Prince, where the Curacao team are staying ahead of Tuesday's CONCACAF Nations League match against Haiti.

Haiti sports minister Edwin Charles announced on Twitter that Pieter had suffered a "cardiac arrest" and died.

The Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) expressed it's sadness for Pieter's sudden death and announced in a statement that Tuesday's encounter between Haiti and Curacao will go ahead, with the Curacao players eager to play "as a tribute to their teammate."

A minute's silence will be observed before the game as "the entire Confederation pays its respect to Jairzinho for his contributions to the game."

Pieter, who played for Curacao's first division side SV Vesta, was on the bench in Sunday's 1-0 home triumph over Haiti.

Curacao goalkeeper Eloy Room, who plays for Major League Soccer club Columbus Crew SC, posted a video on Twitter showing the Curacao squad gathered around for a minute's silence at the team's hotel on Monday evening.
