Death fails to stop fan attending match

BILL Shankley famously said: “Some people believe football is a matter of life and death – I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.”
And one Colombian football fan proved this maxim by attending a match despite being dead.
The 17-year-old Cucuta Deportivo supporter had been shot the day before, and ahead of the wake friends and family paraded his coffin through the streets and into the General Santander Stadium.
Spokesman Julio Rivera said: “This is the only part of the world where this has happened.”
The club is launching an inquiry to find out who allowed the corpse entry into the ground.
