Indonesian footballer Akli Fairuz has died following a horrific tackle from goalkeeper Agus Rahman.

Indonesian Persiraja striker Akli Fairuz suffered internal injuries and bladder leakage following Rahman's waist-high lunge.

However, after he was admitted to hospital he took a turn for the worse and passed away a few days later.
