Alvaro Morata accepts 'signed-shirt' challenge to aid in Mexico quake relief

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has accepted the challenge of Sevilla's Pablo Sarabia to participate in a signed-shirt auction to benefit the victims of a September earthquake that devastated parts of Mexico and Mexico City.

The footballing community is continuing to aid those affected by the magnitude 7.1 earthquake on Sept. 19, with players auctioning off signed shirts to raise funds.

Mexico-based players like Club America's William da Silva, Cruz Azul's Gabriel Penalba and Chivas' Jesus Sanchez have all joined in and the campaign is starting to go international

On Tuesday, Morata took up the challenge and nominated Isco, Marco Asensio and Kiko Casilla, after Sevilla's Sarabia originally nominated him. Mexico women's national team forward Charlyn Corral also donated a shirt to the cause.

Funds raised from the auctions will go to either the Red Cross or the Fundacion Carlos Slim, depending on which the winner decides.

The organizers confirmed to ESPN FC via email that the auction will be finalized on Oct. 21 and the shirts will be sold as individual pieces in most cases.

The effort is being coordinated by a group called "El Futbol con Mexico" (Football for Mexico) and is using the hashtag #futbol1sismo0 or "football 1, earthquake 0."
