CHARITY: Friendly raises Sh39m for Chapecoense

FOOTBALL By The Standard | January 27th 2017

Brazil beat Colombia 1-0 in a friendly that raised more than £300,000 (Sh39m) for the families of the Chapecoense players and staff who were killed in a plane crash in November.

Four survivors — three players and a radio commentator — were introduced at Rio’s Olympic stadium before the game. Striker Dudu scored the only goal when he headed home after the break.

Chapecoense drew 2-2 against Palmeiras on Saturday in their first game since the tragedy. Only six of the 77 people on board the LaMia flight carrying the Chapecoense team to Colombia for their Copa Sudamericana final survived the crash on 28 November.
