(CNN) -- Italian footballer Piermario Morosini has died after collapsing during a Serie B match at Pescara on Saturday, according to Italian media reports.

The 25-year-old collapsed after suffering a heart attack during the first half of the game of the match between Pescara and Livorno in Italian football's second division.

He was treated on the pitch before being rushed by ambulance to Pescara's Civile Santo Spirito hospital but was later pronounced dead.

A statement on the official Serie A web site said: "The world of soccer is in mourning for the tragedy that took place this afternoon in Pescara, where during a match between the home team and Livorno, the soccer player Piermario Morosini collapsed on the ground (struck down) by a heart attack.

"The young midfield player came under pharmacological coma, but he died around 17:00."

Morosini, a former Italy under-21 international, was on loan at Livorno from Serie A side Udinese.

The match was immediately abandoned and the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) announced a short time later that all football fixtures this weekend have been canceled.

Inter Milan captain, Javier Zanetti, who learned of the news as his team were preparing for their Serie A fixture against Udinese, said the whole team was shocked by the news.

"We're all deeply dismayed and very sorry," Zanetti said in a statement published on Inter's web site.

"It is hard to believe what has happened and of course it was right to postpone all league games. My thoughts and those of all my teammates go out to all his family," Zanetti added.

Morosini's death comes just under a month after English Premier League player Fabrice Muamba collapsed after suffering a cardiac arrest during an FA Cup match between Bolton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on March 17.

The 24-year-old's heart stopped for 78 minutes as doctors struggled to keep him alive at the stadium and then later at the London Chest Hospital on March 17.

The Bolton midfielder has since made a remarkable recovery.

The ambulance couln't reach the field because a parked car belonging to Municipal Police was impeeding the access, so some players rushed to carry the stretcher from the ambulance to the field: only after some time the ambulance could enter (see next pics).
He was only 25, R.I.P.

Heart Wrenching. These stories always tug hard on my heart.

Kinda sad when you think these guys strive to be so healthy and fit, just to die of cardiac arrest.

Heart failure at 25?! Wondering if he had any heart problems leading up to his death.

Reminds me of another case, where a player just collapsed and died. He was also very young.

It just another death to me I can't see why people get more upset over this guy just because he kicked a bit of leather around and got paid handsomely to do so, there are lots more people than him deserving of sympathy, fuck sake grown men crying over this guy is pathetic, I may be harsh but it's just my view on over paid footballers.
