Manchester United confirm one minute silence for Brazilian team plane crash

Manchester United take on West Ham this evening in an EFL Cup quarter-final clash. The game is the second time within days that the sides have met, with the league match finishing in a 1-1 draw. Jose will be hoping for more of a positive result this time – but there are more important matters at hand.

Yesterday morning we learned of a plane crash carrying Brazilian football team Chapecoense, as well over seventy people lost their lives in tragic circumstances.

Now, Manchester United have taken to Twitter to confirm that there will be a one minute silence before the match this evening, to remember those who sadly passed away.

Check out Manchester United’s tweet here:

To be honest, a minute’s silence is the very least Manchester United can do. What happened out in Columbia is an absolute travesty. So many people lost their lives in a freak accident – and that is something that our great club can relate to.

The people of Brazil must be in utter disbelief at what has happened, and at times like this, the footballing world has to come together and unite.
