Brazilian football team in Colombia plane crash !!!

In a tragic incident, a plane flying from Bolivia has reportedly crashed while approaching Medellin, Colombia. There were over 70 passengers and 9 crew members on the flight that was scheduled to land in Medellin before the tragedy occurred around midnight local time. 

Amongst the passengers were also the players of Brazilian football club Chapecoense. The team was set to face Medellin's Atletico Nacional on Wednesday, 30th November, in the finals of the Copa Sudamerica (South American Club Cup). 
This was scheduled to be the 1st leg of the final, with the second to be played in Brazil on 7th December. The match has been suspended.
According to reports, the reason for the crash has still not been determined. Although Elkin Ospina, the mayor of the nearby town of La Ceja, told AFP, "It appears that the plane ran out of fuel." 

The plane was a British Aerospace 146 short-haul plane and had also transported the Argentinian national team earlier in November.
The plane crashed in the mountainous terrain on the outskirts of the Colombian city where Colombia's civil aeronautics agency said it had a team at the airport in response to the emergency call. Mayor Ospina also said that hospitals and medical centres were preparing to receive the injured.

Medellin’s Mayor Federico Gutierrez told Blu Radio, "It’s a tragedy of huge proportions." And also said that there is a possibility of survivors. Let's hope that he is right.
Latest from Colombia - - 81 people on board including top Brazilian football team Chapecoense

    Ronaldo Tells Felipe Melo - Don't Come Back To Brazil

    Legendary Striker Ronaldo Tells Felipe Melo - Don't Come Back To Brazil

    Melo receives the elbow from former ace after stamping his feet on Brazil's World Cup dream...

    Former Brazil striker Ronaldo has told Felipe Melo not to return home for his summer holidays following his part in the Selecao's World Cup exit.

    Melo scored an own goal and then got himself sent off after stamping on Arjen Robben to leave Brazil's hopes of a sixth World Cup triumph in tatters.

    And his actions have been met with a regiment of criticism back home. Ronaldo warned Melo not to bother heading back to Sao Paulo with the Brazil squad when they return home later fearing a backlash from fans.

    "Felipe Melo better not come to Brazil for his holidays," Ronaldo said via his Twitter. 

    "I don't understand the lack of communication between Melo and Julio Cesar. When he comes out Julio always shouts, but this time both men went for the ball," added Ronaldo commenting the own goal.

    "To my friends with sympathies, it's a difficult time, but you guys are warriors. [World Cup] 2014 will be he soon and we will have a great one," concluded 'O Fenomeno'.
