Over 100,000 expected to turn out to mourn plane crash victims

Most of the Chacecoense squad were killed in the tragedy

The remaining bodies of 71 people who died in a plane crash earlier this week are due back in Brazil later today as the country continues to mourn the tragedy. 

Only 6 people survived the crash when the plane they were travelling on went down near Medellin in Colombia. It was carrying the Chapecoense football squad and support staff when it ran out of fuel and crashed. Only three players from the squad survived.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino will attend a service for the victims in Brazil at the team's stadium. 

Chapecoense were due to play in the final of the Copa Sudamericana against Medellin team Atletico Nacional. 

An investigation into the crash is expected to take months to complete before the full picture of how this tragedy occurred is revealed. 

A minute's silence is due to be held before all football fixtures this weekend and FIFA have requested that all players wear black armbands in remembrance of those who lost their lives.

Moments of silence will also be held before next week's Champions League and Europa League matches.
