On Saturday, Chapecoense played its first game since the fatal plane crash that killed the majority of the team’s players and staff in November.

With a rebuilt roster of new players, mostly on loan from other clubs, the team took the field Saturday in for a friendly against Palmeiras in honor of those that died in the crash, with the three surviving players all in attendance.

Douglas Grolli opened the scoring off a set piece.

It proved for a cool moment, indeed.
