CHAPECO, BRAZIL – NOVEMBER 29, 2016: A boy sits alone on the stands during a tribute to the players of Brazilian soccer team Chapecoense Real, at the club’s Arena Conda Stadium in Chapeco, in the southern Brazilian state of Santa Catarina. All but three members of team Chapecoense perished after their plane crashed into the mountains of northwestern Colombia, killing 73 of its 81 passengers. Chapecoense had risen from obscurity to make it to the Copa Sudamericana finals scheduled for Wednesday, November 30, against Atletico Nacional of Colombia. Nelson ALMEIDA / AFP
