The remains of the late Raphael Dwamena has arrived in Ghana from Albania.

Dwamena’s body was received by his family in Accra late on Friday night at the Kotoka International Airport.

The former Ghana striker was pronounced dead last week after collapsing on a football pitch during a League match in Albania.

The Egnatia player suffered a heart attack during a League match between Egnatia and Partizani.

The 28-year-old collapsed on the field in the 24th minute of the game and passed minutes later at the Kavaja hospital.

The footballer had a history of heart problems, having suffered from several heart failures in the years leading up to his passing.

Dwamena had nine goals in the ongoing season.

The former Red Bull Academy player represented Ghana 9 times and scored two goals.
