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.

Cha Gi-suk, a South Korean goalkeeper who played several times for the national team at Under-17 and Under-20 level and was in the senior squad for the 2004 Asian Cup, has died aged 34.

He had struggled for some time with chronic kidney conditions, requiring several transplants, with AIDS seeing him off, received from a donor that had HIV.

Yes, my thoughts exactly. I think his big mountain of cash and his missus who is sticking with him and denying the accusations will see him through it just fine.

Yeah, I doubt he's at the centre of an Icelandic Epstein ring. I think he just texted his dick pic to a 15-year-old.
