Chapecoense fall to Japan's Urawa Reds after late penalty decision

Chapecoense complain to the referee after he awarded a late penalty.

Yuki Abe scored a penalty with two minutes left to give J-League side Urawa Reds a 1-0 victory over Brazil's Chapecoense in the Suruga Bank Championship on Tuesday.

Referee Kim Jong Hyeok awarded the spot-kick after judging that Chapecoense captain Grolli took down Zlatan Ljubijankic.

Chapecoense protested the call and Grolli said after the match that he did not foul Ljubijankic.

Chapecoense were playing its first competitive match overseas since all but three of their players were killed in a plane crash in November near Medellin, Colombia.

The annual midsummer match pits the Copa Sudamericana champions against the J-League cup holders.
