The tragedy of Serhiy Perkhun


By watching the matches of CSKA Moscow, it is possible to see that no player uses the number 16. This is no coincidence, because the number was retired after the tragedy suffered by one of their goalkeepers, Serhiy Perkhun. Fans can go to 1xBet – visit betting sites in Ghana and make all their wagers on this particular squad.

Perkhun was a highly talented goalkeeper since his beginnings. He became the youngest player ever to play in the top division of Ukrainian football. This happened after he played for Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk on the 8th of October 1993 in a match against FC Kryvbas Kryvyi Rih. He quickly established himself as a great keeper, and he started to move through other teams in Ukraine, Moldova and Russia, such as:

  • Sheriff Tiraspol;
  • Metalurh Novomoskovsk;
  • and CSKA Moscow.

Whenever those teams are in the field, it is a great idea to visit the 1xBet Ghana betting sites, which offer lots of wagering opportunities.

A tragic incident

Perkhun was really seen as a promising goalkeeper in Ukrainian football. In fact, on the 15th of August 2001 he played for the Ukrainian national team in a friendly match against Latvia. Little did he know that it would be the second to last match of his life. Whenever visiting 1xBet – your live-bet can be made on the Ukrainian national team and on any other highly exciting football squads.

On the 18th of August, the unthinkable would happen. CSKA Moscow was playing a match against Anzhi Makhachkala. The keeper made a mistake when trying to clear a ball with his feet. It went straight up, and the keeper tried to catch it while falling. Budun Budunov, who was an Anzhi forward, also wanted to keep the ball. Both players jumped to catch it. Unfortunately, both collided their heads midair. It is possible to make your live-bet on 1xBet on all the matches played in Russian football.

The CSKA flew back to Moscow. Perkhun was cleared to fly with his teammates. However, during the flight it was clear that something was very wrong. The goalkeeper started to feel bad and even lost consciousness. In fact, immediately after landing in Moscow he was taken to a hospital.
