Soccer fans in Brazil and Colombia held tributes on Wednesday night in honor of those killed late Monday when a plane carrying a Brazilian team crashed near Medellin, Colombia, killing 71 people.

Grieving Chapecoense players huddled together in front of tens of thousands of supporters at the team’s stadium in Chapeco, southern Brazil on the night the club was supposed to be competing in the Copa Sudamericana final.

The disaster virtually wiped out an up-and-coming Brazilian football team and sent shock waves through the world of football.

Football legends Pele and Maradona as well as current superstars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo led tributes to the players of Chapecoense Real, a humble team whose march to glory was cut abruptly short.
