The Chapecoense soccer club has paid a moving Facebook tribute to victims of a plane crash near Medellin, Colombia that killed most of its players.

Only six of the 77 people on board the charted aircraft survived, three of them soccer players. 

The Brazilian team was flying to Colombia for one of the biggest matches in its history, the final of the Copa Sudamericana. 

Coming from a small city of less than 200,000 inhabitants, Chapecoense had become an unlikely success story in Brazilian football, rising from the 4th division to Brazil’s Serie A in 2014. 

An illustration posted by the Chapecoense club on its official Facebook page shows the players lined up in heaven as God hands each of them a halo.  Read more…
