NEC Nijmegen's Dutch midfielder Evander Sno, who suffered a major heart attack two years ago, was taken to hospital as a precaution after falling ill during Saturday night's game at Feyenoord, the club announced on Sunday.

The 25-year-old complained of stomach pains and was replaced in the 34th minute but left the pitch and walked to the waiting ambulance unaided.

Two years ago Sno suffered a heart attack while playing for Ajax's youth team, falling unconscious before being revived ten minutes later.

Since that incident he has played wearing a defibrillator.
