Thai Cave Boys Watch United at Old Trafford

The 12 young footballers who spent two weeks trapped in a cave in Thailand have finally achieved their dream of watching Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The story of the boys and their coach, who were finally rescued by a team of divers, captured the imagination of the world in July, and they were invited to watch the match after their extraordinary rescue.

Their attendance at the event was however overshadowed by news of the death of the Thai owner of Leicester City FC, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, and two members of his staff, the pilot and a passenger who were killed when his helicopter crashed outside the club’s stadium Saturday night.

The Thai Cave Boys, referred to as Wild Boars, were invited to watch the Fifa World Cup final where France beat Croatia in July, but couldn’t make it as they’d just been rescued at the time.
