“We are told that he had a quarrel with one of the Khubetsoana boys who stabbed him with a knife and he died right on the spot at one of the entertainment places there on Saturday morning.

Dutch prosecutors demanded a two-year prison sentence for former Netherlands international footballer Quincy Promes at the start of his trial Friday over the stabbing of a cousin.

The 31-year-old Spartak Moscow forward is alleged to have attacked the victim at a family birthday party in Abacoude, near Amsterdam, in 2020 in what is thought to have been a row over a stolen necklace.
