why is antonio puerta still on the pes 2008.
Antonio puerta R.I.P
Because even now he is still better than Emily Heskey.
Stop that's killing me.
But now serious:
A natural left-footer, Puerta joined Sevilla as a boy and spent a total of 14 years at the club, growing up at the club's acclaimed youth system alongside other players such as Sergio Ramos, Jesús Navas, Alejandro Alfaro and Kepa Blanco. He played on the left side of midfield, although he did occasionally fill in at left back. His impressive performances earned him international recognition and reported interest from Arsenal, Manchester United and Real Madrid.
Antonio is remembered by the goal that he scored against FC Schalke 04 in the UEFA Cup 2005/06 semifinals. In the final moments of the match, he received a long ball and struck it with his left foot, scoring one of the most important goals in Sevilla FC history. From then on, the team won five titles in fifteen months, a record in football history.
Puerta was capped once by the Spanish national side, making his debut on October 7, 2006, against Sweden in a qualification match for the 2008 UEFA European Football Championship. He was also capped for Spain U-21.
On 25 August 2007, Puerta collapsed and lost consciousness due to a cardiac arrest during Sevilla's first match of the 2007-08 La Liga season at their home stadium Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán against Getafe. He was seen crouching and then subsequently collapsing upon moving back to his team's goal, after only 35 minutes of the game had passed. His team-mates Ivica Dragutinović, Andrés Palop and a club medical staff were then seen immediately running to his side as he lost consciousness.
After recovering and being substituted, Puerta collapsed once again in the changing room. He was resucitated by club medical staff and taken, by ambulance, to the intensive care unit of Virgen del Rocio hospital, Seville, where he received cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
Antonio Puerta died on the 28 August, 2007 at 14:30 hours. Doctor Francisco Murillo reported that Puerta had suffered multiple organ failure and irreversible brain damage as a result of multiple prolonged cardiac arrests due to an incurable, hereditary heart disease known as arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy. There is no official word on whether he had ever been equipped with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator. Puerta's premature death from heart problems is similar to those of Marc-Vivien Foé, Matt Gadsby, Miklós Fehér and Serginho, all of whom collapsed whilst playing in football matches. His girlfriend was expecting their first child at the time of his death
it's a bloody shame.
