Last week Dinamo Bucharest midfielder and Camerooon international Patrick Ekeng died after suddenly collapsing on the pitch in a game against Viitorul Costana. Last night, the club paid homage to the 26 year old in their Romanian Cup final against Cluj.
Despite losing on penalties, the club and fans organized a remarkable choreography in his name. The match began with an emotional minute’s silence. For all the negative stories we often see emerging from Romanian football, this is a rare and somewhat uplifting moment.
