Tragedy in Colombia

Recommended Posts

This last night there was a horrible airplane accident in Colombia, near Medellín. The airplane where the Brazilian team Associação Chapecoense de Futebol was, to fly from Brazil to Colombia to play there first ever international final against Atlético Nacional crashed killing (so far as all news say) 70+ people. Including players, the head coach of this team, journalists and crew members of the airplane.

Chapecoense has been climbing the ladder for the last recent years until the club got to the Serie A and was about to write another page in the history of the World of Football...

FORÇA CHAPECOENSE!

A horrible accident, and the reactions from other clubs has been quite heartwarming. Atlético Nacional have asked CONMEBOL to award the Copa Sudamericana title to Chapecoense and there was an announcement from a group of Brazilian clubs saying they would loan Chapecoense players for free next year and asking the FA to keep the club safe from relegation for the next 3 seasons so they have a chance to rebuild.

It's nice to know that there's still some good in people.

Sadly i've heard that one of the players, if he survives, might be para or quadriplegic for the rest of his life...

One other, one of the GK's had one leg amputated.

They will get help from the big Brazilian clubs as @Pyso said, but the survivors may be completely destroyed inside...

Their have been rumours of PSG paying 40m to the club but I think they have been marked as false. 

Also saw somewhere around the net a video of a great save the keeper made in the 94th minute in their semi final second game. Had he not saved that, they would have all been alive. So weird to think of it like that.
