The Death of Óscar Carmelo Sánchez

November 23, 2007 – Óscar Carmelo Sánchez was a Bolivian sweeper who played for the Bolivia national football team in the 1994 FIFA World Cup held in the United States. In 2007 he had one of his kidneys removed due to the discovery of a tumour, which proved to be malignant. In October 2007, his weak health forced him to quit that position too. Sánchez died on November 23, 2007.
