Tragic news with 71 people dying on a plane containing 77 people. Only three players on board survived, along with a journalist and two members of the flight crew.

The club was planning to play in its biggest match in it's 43-year history against Atletico Nacional (Colombian team) in 2016 Copa Sudamericana Finals, which is the South American equivalent of the Europa League in Europe.

Just a devastating event that has the whole football world in mourning.

Is that really an appropriate question to ask?

The right call. But such a tragic story.
