    Jergé Hoefdraad, a winger whose career was spent moving around smaller to medium-sized Dutch clubs, but always returning to Almere City, was shot and killed yesterday. The 35-year-old spent his youth career at FC Abcoude then the giants AFC Ajax, before moving to RKC Waalwijk, where he made his professional debut. After leaving Waalwijk, he joined Almere City, whom he would play for 153 times across three spells from 2009-2011, 2013-15 and lastly from 2017-2019. Perhaps his best stint as a player, however, was at Cambuur Leeuwarden, whom he played for between his second and third spells at Almere - scoring six goals and assisting 21 in 51 matches. His other club in his playing career was a two-year stint at SC Telstar between 2011 and 2013.

    Full-back Eleazar Soria, part of the Peru squad that won the 1975 Copa America, has died aged 73. He won 29 caps for Peru between 1972 and 1978, playing for Universitario and Sporting Cristal in his homeland either side of a spell with Independiente of Argentina. He won six Peruvian titles, four with Universitario (1967, 1969, 1971 and 1974) and two with Cristal (1979 and 1980) But perhaps his greatest honour at club level was winning the 1975 Copa Libertadores with Independiente, a squad that featured the not-too-long departed Agustin Balbuena.
