SHOCKING: Crocodile kills footballer in Mozambique

A football club in Mozambique is in mourning after one of their players was tragically killed by a crocodile. According to reports, Estevao Alberto Gino, 19, who played for amateur club Atletico Mineiro de Tete, lost his life when he was attacked by the animal while running on the banks of the Zambezi river.

“The crocodile came out of the water abruptly and took him by the waist. After that, the animal ran back into the water,” Edy Carvalho, coach of Atletico told O Tempo.

“His two friends were very scared and they heard the screams, but there was nothing they could do. The crocodile was like five metres.”

The club, named after the Brazilian team, posted a tribute to their player on their Facebook page, offering condolences to Gino’s family.
