The remains of Ghanaian soccer player Christian Atsu have been recovered from the rubble in Turkey’s Hatay province following the major earthquakes that struck the region in early February.
Atsu played a vital role during his last game for Turkey’s Hatayspor against fellow Turkish soccer team Kasimpasa when he scored the winning goal right before the game clock hit zero on Feb. 5.
Following the game, in the early hours of Feb. 6, Atsu got trapped under a building that fell following the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit the country and its neighbor Syria, according to Insider.
