    PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad & Tobago -- The Trinidad & Tobago Football Association announced on Friday that men’s national team forward Kevon Carter passed away earlier that  day at the age of 30.

    Reports indicated that Carter experienced chest pains during a training session with his club, Defence Force, and subsequently suffered a suspected heart attack.

    “This is something unbelievable to all of us right now,” said Devorn Jorsling, Carter’s teammate for club and country.  “One minute Kevon was right there with us and then after we’re hearing he didn’t make it.”

    “This a massive shock for all of us but also devastating to see one of your brothers go and will not return to be with us.”

    Carter made 31 appearances for Trinidad & Tobago, scoring five goals.  He was a member of the Soca Warriors squad that advanced to the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinals.

    Another Trinidad international, Akeem Adams, died on December 30, 2013, after suffering a heart attack three months earlier in Hungary.
