The schoolboy football team rescued from a flooded cave in Thailand have been invited by the Spain’s La’ Liga to come watch a game after they’ve fully recovered and gotten over the trauma so they could meet their “heroes”.
In a statement on Wednesday, Javier Tebas, Spain President said “When the time is right, and everyone involved is ready I’d personally like to invite the children and the coach to attend a La Liga match in Spain”.
“We’d like to host them and share with them the joy football can give, and I hope this gesture can help get over the events of the last few weeks.” Reports Channels.
We want the 12 boys and their football coach, who form the Wild Boars soccer squad, to “watch many of their football heroes in action in person.” La Liga says.
After setting off to explore a cave complex in northern Thailand and getting caught by rising floodwaters, the boys were then trapped for over two weeks.
One of the boys was wearing a Real Madrid t-shirt.
La Liga said it had sent a message across to all its clubs to invite them to be a part of it.
The Wild Boars were invited by Football’s world governing body FIFA to Sunday’s World Cup final in Moscow, but they remain too weak to come and must stay in hospital to recuperate and be sure that they have no infections.
