    CONCACAF statement on death of Akeem Adams

    CONCACAF is deeply saddened to learn of the death of Trinidad and Tobago defender Akeem Adams at the age of 22.

    Adams died on Monday in Budapest, Hungary after being hospitalized following a heart attack in September and subsequently undergoing several operations. He fell into a coma on Saturday after suffering a massive stroke.


    A promising young player who had represented Trinidad and Tobago’s national teams at youth and senior levels, Adams had joined Hungarian club Ferencvaros in August.


    “Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends as they grieve this loss,” said CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb.


    “We also extend our support to the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association and those in the football community who are affected by this tragic loss of a talented player, and much loved and respected young man,” added Webb.


    Born April 13th, 1991, Adams first entered the national program at the Under 13 level  and went on to represent his country at the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in South Korea in 2007 and the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Egypt in 2009.


    Adams  made his senior international debut for his country on March 19th, 2008 against El Salvador, and played his final international match on January 22, 2011 against Finland at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.
