Argentines pay tribute to Sala

February 17, 2019


PROGRESO: Grieving Argentines paid tribute to footballer Emiliano Sala on Saturday at a special memorial in his home region of Santa Fe.

The body of the 28-year old, who died in a plane crash last month, was laid out in a gymnasium in the town where he grew up so friends and family could pay their last respects.

A single-engine plane carrying Sala from French club Nantes to his new team Cardiff City crashed on Jan 21 in the English Channel, before he made his debut for the Premier League. Wreckage was found on Feb 3 following a privately-funded underwater search and a body recovered three days later.
