Chapecoense Crash Survivor To Play Paralympic Football

It has been three months since the horror plane crash involving players from Brazil club Chapecoense, and one of the survivors is already looking to get back on the field!

Jakson Follmann was one of six people to survive the Colombia plane crash in November, which killed 71 passengers.

19 players from Chapecoense and manager Luis Saroli were among those who tragically lost their lives that day, in an event that will never be forgotten.

Follmann, a 24-year-old goalkeeper, may have lost his leg in the plane crash, but he has made his intentions of playing Paralympic football clear, according to the Daily Mail.

The shot-stopper has since had a prosthetic leg fitted, and has begun walking thanks to plenty of time spent with a physio.

The player has shown incredible strength since the terrible incident, and we wish him the best of luck for his future.

Are you inspired by Follmann's story?
