Brazil’s football club Chapecoense was almost wiped out in a devastating plane crash in Colombia last year.
The club has signed 27 new players to replace those tragically killed for the new season. And one of the 3 survivors of the crash got to meet them and give them some words of advice.The southern Brazilian club were en route to Medellin to face Atletico Nacional in the final of the Copa Sudamericana when their jet hit a mountain, killing 71 people.
Centre back Helio Neto, pictured above and fullback Alan Ruschel survived, as did reserve goalkeeper Jackson Follmann, who had part of his leg amputated.
Reports say the club reserved shirt numbers for two of the survivors in the hope they can play again.
