Loads of professional football players have died... I think you mean have any football players ever died while playing? The answer is yes, too many to mention. The two most recent professional footballers to die whilst playing (as of 17th June 2010) are Guran Tunjic of Mladost FC, he collapsed from a heart attack and actually received a yellow card as the referee thought he had dived, only to find out the real reason Tunjic collapsed. He died in May 2010 and Wilson Mene of Prek Pra Keila FC died 8th May 2010 after collapsing during a league match. Also, in March 2009, an Iraqi footballer was shot dead by a spectator as he was just about to score an equalising goal in the last minute.
