President of the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association of Football (CONCACAF) Jeffrey Webb has expressed sadness on the death of Trinidad and Tobago defender Akeem Adams.
The 22-year-old Adams died in Budapest, Hungary on Monday after being hospitalised following a heart attack in September and subsequently undergoing several operations.
He fell into a coma on Saturday after suffering a massive stroke.
President Webb says CONCACAF thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends as they grieve the loss.
Adams represented his country at every level including the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in South Korea in 2007 and the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Egypt in 2009.
He made his senior international debut in a friendly against Finland in January 2011 and at domestic club level he played for W Connection, United Petrotrin and Central.
Adams had joined Hungarian club Ferencvaros in August.
