Santos release #ForçaChape video paying tribute to Chapecoense
The football world stood together on Tuesday following the devastating plane crash in Colombia that killed 76 of 81 passengers on board, including members of Brazilian football club Chapecoense.
Players, coaching staff and journalists heading to the Copa Sudamericana final all lost their lives. Of the five survivors, three were Chapecoense players.
Leading the tributes in Brazil is an impressive video produced by fellow Brazilian football club Santos — where both Pele and Neymar came through the ranks.
The video is over five minutes long and features the Chapecoense players celebrating reaching the Copa Sudamericana final last week.
It displays a beautiful message, as follows: “We prefer to keep that image of you as warriors. Today, football has no colour, no shirt other than the green of Chapecoense. Force to you all. We are together.”
