Lima, Peru:

A young footballer from Peru's Sporting Cristal club died on the training field when he was undergoing a test to enter the junior division.

This is the second death of a Sporting Cristal player in a week, reports Xinhua.

The 15-year-old player, identified as Fernando Andre Cardenas Moscol, suffered a sudden seizure. The club's medical team cared for him before he was taken to Alameda del Rimac hospital, where he died of a heart attack.

The training was suspended while the club also cancelled a press conference on Wednesday match against Spain's Atletico de Madrid.

Sporting Cristal's junior central defender Yair Clavijo, died last Sunday due to a heart attack just before the end of the reserve players' match against Real Garcilaso del Cusco in Urcos stadium in the southeastern Peruvian city of Cusco.
