71 people were killed, including the majority of the Chapecoense squad, as their aircraft crashed near Medellin.
The team, who played in Brazil’s first division, were on their way to Colombia for the first leg of a two-game Copa Sudamericana final against Atletico Nacional.
Players and fans from around the world have began posting touching tributes on social media, and Uruguay international Cavani looked to pay his respects after notching his 100th goal for PSG against Angers.
The former Napoli star celebrated by revealing a T-shirt emblazoned Chapeceonse’s logo and the word ‘Fuerza’, which means ‘strength’.
However, FIFA guidelines state that player’s will be cautioned for removing their shirt – meaning Cavani was booked for his touching gesture.
That didn’t stop the 29-year-old from posting a picture of his t-shirt on his Twitter account though:

Cavani’s strike meant PSG earned a deserved 2-0 victory over Angers, a result which pushes the Ligue 1 giants into second place in the table.
