Thai Cave Boys Invited To Manchester United Game At Old Trafford

The 12 boys who were trapped with their soccer coach in a flooded cave in northern Thailand for almost three weeks were guests at Old Trafford for Manchester United's home match against Everton in the Premier League.

Wearing red-and-white United scarves and with a look of excitement on their faces, the boys from the Wild Boars team, aged 11 to 17, took their seats in the directors' box for the game on Sunday.

They met United manager Jose Mourinho on Saturday.

The boys' ordeal came to a happy ending in early July when an international team of cave divers brought them out in a complicated rescue mission.

When the boys were rescued, the team had tweeted: "We would love to welcome the team from Wild Boars Football Club and their rescuers to Old Trafford this coming season."
