He is a member of the Maldives national football team. He was the Maldivian National Team Captain in the most recent bangabandhu gold cup 2016, held in Bangladesh, Dhaka.

Penalty feinting incident
Adey gained global notability after simulating a fall prior to the run up of a penalty shootout in the third place match of the 2014 AFC Challenge Cup against Afghanistan, deceiving goalkeeper Mansur Faqiryar. The match was won 7–8 to the Maldives.
A similar move was pulled off by Thomas Müller during the 2014 FIFA World Cup (Germany v Algeria). In the 88th minute, Thomas Müller deceptively stumbled while lining up the kick, before getting up and running through the Algerian wall. A few days later, Müller admitted to a German TV reporter that the free kick was a designed play.
