Long-time Pachuca goalkeeper Calero dead at 41

Former Colombian national team and Pachuca goalkeeper Miguel Calero died on Tuesday at the age of 41.

A familiar face to American soccer fans from his years as Pachuca’s netminder, Calero made 50 appearances for the Colombian national team and was a key figure on a Pachuca side that won four Mexican League titles and four CONCACAF Champions League titles. He had retired a year ago and become Pachuca’s goalkeeper coach.

Calero suffered a stroke last month and was placed on life support after undergoing brain surgery. He was declared brain dead on Monday before being removed from life support on Tuesday.
