The Brazilian top flight club were shattered on November 28th crashed as it approached Medellin, Colombia, ahead of their Copa Sudamericana final first leg clash against Atletico Nacional.

The whole of football has been in mourning since, while the club attempts to remember the dead and rebuild so they can continue competing throughout the season.

They’ve had offers from some of the world’s top clubs and top players to help them while they get back on their feet and their youth team is expected to be relied upon heavily throughout the rest of the campaign.

Chape are today playing their first game since the devastation of the plane crash – a friendly with Brazilian giants Palmeiras, who were their last opponents before the crash.

And their sell-out Arena Condá has been treated to a memorable goal thanks to Douglas Grolli, who scored their first since the tragedy:

As you can see, that sparked big celebrations among the fans, while Grolli and his team-mates looked delighted to mark the occasion with a goal.

Grolli is among 17 players now on loan at Chapecoense and they’ll restart their season competitively against Joinville next weekend.
