The footballer had never showed any sign of heart disease before, Defence Force's assistant coach Marvin Gordon told local media.

As a forward of the Trinidad and Tobago national team, Carter scored five goals in 31 national appearances.

In December, 22-year-old Trinidad and Tobago national defender Akeem Adams died due to heart problems in Hungary.
