Play in Roma's Serie A match at Udinese Sunday was abandoned after Evan Ndicka collapsed with an apparent problem with his chest.

The Roma defender dropped to the ground in the 70th minute with the teams level at 1-1 following a 23rd minute goal by Roberto Pereyra for the hosts and a 64th minute equalizer by Romelu Lukaku.

The Ivory Coast defender Ndicka, who was taken off on a stretcher, was conscious as he left the Bluenergy Stadium, according to broadcaster DAZN.

Italian media reported that Ndicka could have suffered a heart attack.

Roma coach Daniele De Rossi followed Ndicka into the tunnel and after re-emerging spoke to his players, referee Luca Pairetto and his Udinese counterpart Gabriele Cioffi.
