Football News : Coulibaly heart attack medics honoured in Qatar

The medical team that treated Ousmane Coulibaly, after the Al-Wakrah defender suffered a heart attack on the pitch on Saturday, received a guard of honour before Monday's rescheduled Qatar Stars League match against Al-Rayyan.

The 32-year-old Mali international collapsed just before half-time and was treated by medics from the Qatar Hamad Hospital, who were assisted by Al-Wakrah and Al-Rayyan's own medical staff.

Paris-born Coulibaly, who had spells for Guingamp and Brest in France and played for Greek clubs Platanias and Panathinaikos before joining Al-Wakrah in 2019, is now in a stable condition in hospital.

The 'Cyan Waves' were unable to win Monday's game in honour of their stricken team-mate though, as James Rodriguez scored two second half goals in a 3-0 win for Al-Rayyan.
