The stadium is within a south-eastern suburb of the Greek capital Athens, but the ambulance did not arrive for 20 minutes, The Sun reports, and there was no way to resuscitate the stricken player at the ground.
The incident comes after the world watched in horror only eight months ago when Christian Eriksen collapsed suffering from a sudden cardiac arrest, while playing for Denmark at Euro 2020.
Eriksen has now joined Brentford in the Premier League where he hopes to play professionally and be selected to be part of the FIFA 2022 World Cup in Denmark squad.
