Guatemala keeper dies
Guatemala international keeper Danny Ortiz has died after colliding with an opponent during a league match.

The 27-year-old Municipal star ran into Comunicaciones forward Mario Rodriguez and suffered a blow to the chest, which briefly left him unconscious.

Ortiz, who made his debut in the Guatemalan First Division in 1998 and who once played for Comunicaciones, died later in hospital.

"Unfortunately, his heart did not respond," said a hospital spokesperson.
