Thailand football team won't attend World Cup final

Australian doctor and diver Richard Harris

"Is there anyone who can help with an address?"

The "Wild Boar" youth soccer team and its 25-year-old coach were exploring the cave on June 23 when heavy rains flooded their exit route.

Parents of the first four boys freed on Sunday have been able to visit them but had to wear protective suits and stand 2 meters (7 feet) away as a precaution.

Thongchai said one member of the final group of four boys and the coach who arrived at a hospital Tuesday evening had a slight lung infection.

The boys were given anti-anxiety medication before they were rescued, Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha revealed, according to The Associated Press.

It no longer mattered, as all 12 boys and the coach were finally safe in hospital, where they will remain in quarantine for about a week.

After pondering for days how to get the 13 out, a rescue operation was launched on Sunday when four of the boys were brought out, tethered to rescue divers.

Elon Musk has questioned the expertise of Thai rescue officials who turned down his offer of a submarine, despite their having organised the successful rescue of all 12 boys and their football coach from a flooded cave.

The dozen players - aged 11 to 16 - and the coach had already received an invitation from Federation Internationale de Football Association chief Gianni Infantino last week to attend the World Cup final on Sunday in Moscow - although after their traumatic experience they may not be up to the trip physically or mentally.

Another four boys were rescued Monday.

The rescued were finally carried out on stretchers from the second chamber, wearing surgical masks to ward off germs, and sunglasses due to their new sensitivity to light, the Thai military sources said. "If I see him, I just want to hug him and tell him that I missed him very much", she said.

"We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what", read the post on the official Thai Navy SEAL Facebook page this morning. All the 13 Wild Boars are now out of the cave.

Half of the boys attend school in Mae Sai, a community that borders Myanmar and lies just a few kilometres from the cave. All they wanted to talk about was whether there were any updates about the team.

England defender Kyle Walker sought out the boys' contact information to send them jerseys.

"We believe this simple gesture can help these faces recover the joy and smiles that no child should ever lose", Vieira said in the letter.

Virtually every major news outlet in Australia (not to mention every major global news service) ran live updates and lead stories on the mission; Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop gave daily press conferences and US President Donald Trump, not known for his effusions of compassion, even spared a tweet for the rescue effort. Musk had proposed possible technological solutions for extracting the boys while they were trapped and travelled to Thailand this week.
