Chapecoense tragedy

Football often brings people together, and today football fans all over the world have been brought together in mourning of the tragic plane crash in Colombia which has killed most of the Chapecoense team, who were on the way to play their first ever Copa Sudamericana against Atletico Nacional in Medellin.
Flight accidents have before hit the world football family: 1949, when the Torino side perished in a crash; the 1958 crash in Munich, which killed most of the Manchester United team; and the 1993 crash which killed the Zambian national team.

As Atletico Nacional just said in a statement: "De nuestra parte, y para siempre, Chapecoense Campeón de la Copa Sudamericana 2016."

Champions forever.
