Manchester City chairman John Wardle has revealed the club's devastation at the death of Marc Vivien Foe.

The Cameroon midfielder is believed to have suffered a heart attack during the Confederations Cup semi-final with Columbia in Lyon and he failed to regain consciousness despite frantic efforts to revive him.

Foe, who celebrated his 28th birthday last month, was due to decide whether to join City on a full-time basis next week after enjoying a successful season-long loan spell when he scored nine goals in 35 Premiership appearances.

The entire Cameroon team will take to the field for Sunday's Confederations Cup final wearing shirts bearing Marc-Vivien Foe's name in tribute to the Lyon midfielder.

The Cameroon camp have confirmed they want to go ahead with the match despite suggestions that it could be cancelled following the 28-year-old Foe's death.

Foe collapsed on the pitch during the second half of Cameroon's 1-0 semi-final win over Colombia in Lyon.

Chuck Blazer, the president of the Confederations Cup organising committee, said: "The Cameroon team have expressed their wish to play the final in memory of their team-mate.

This is a good gesture by his team mates.He was a great footballer and i had the privalige of seeing him play when he was at West Ham....

This is a very sad story to see such a young and in great shape athlete die playing his favorite game. I can recall a few players dying on the field, it's not a pretty sight.
