Nigerian international, Isaac Promise, has given up the ghost.

Promise died at the age of 31. He would be remembered for being the captain of the U20 team to the 2008 Olympic where the team won a silver medal.

He died late Wednesday after collapsing at his apartment gym in Austin, Texas, authorities said.

According to the Police,  they were called following a report of a deceased person at Isaac’s apartment building.

Promise was playing for the Austin Bold of the USL as at the time of his death. The team confirmed his death on Thursday.

According to Austin Bold owner, Bobby Epstein, Promise collapsed at his apartment gym and no foul play was suspected.

The greatest loss a team can suffer is not on the scoreboard, it’s the death of a fellow teammate,” wrote Epstein.

“It’s with shock and grief that we acknowledge the sudden death of Promise Isaac.

“On behalf of the BOLD organisation; we wish his wife, children and family strength and peace as they struggle to cope with his death.”

Promise captained Nigeria to the 2003 FIFA U-17 World Cup held in Finland.
