Atlanta president Darren Eales took to Twitter to send a message of support and condolences to the youngster's family.

He said: “We are deeply saddened by the sudden and tragic death of Christian Carrillo.

“A member of our U15s, Christian's attitude epitomised what our Academy is about.

“Our entire organization joins the Carrillo family in grieving his loss.

“He was a young, talented goalkeeper who infused our entire programme with positivity and leadership.

“On behalf of Atlanta United and everyone at AMB Sports and Entertainment, our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.”

A host of fellow MLS sides replied to the 2018 MLS champions' tweet with their own best wishes, including LAFC, LA Galaxy, New York Red Bulls and Orlando City.

According to journalist Jaime Ojeda, Carrillo was in the car with his brother driving when they were involved in the collision on Saturday – however, the sibling has survived.

It has been alleged the person in the other vehicle was drunk driving.

A GoFundMe page to raise money to cover costs for his funeral has already received more than £24,000 in donations in less than 24 hours – including $1,000 (£740) from ex-USA and current Atlanta goalkeeper Brad Guzan.

The fundraiser was set up by Carrillo's heartbroken auntie Nancy Antunez.

She said: “It is with a heavy heavy heart that we have to create this gofundme to help with funeral expenses for the passing of our nephew.

“Anybody who knew Christian knew him for his beautiful, kind and joyful soul.

“He had such a drive and beautiful passion for soccer and was going to make it so far but his life was cut short way too soon.

“Chiti as our family knew him. You will forever be missed. We love you so much.”
