Thailand football team won't attend World Cup final

Thai cave survivors unable to attend World Cup final says FIFA

FIFA has confirmed members of the Wild Boars Football Club are not well enough to attend Sunday's World Cup final

The footage also depicts one of the boys flashing a victory sign and their parents crying and waving at the children from behind a glass partition.

Hospital Director Chaiwetch Thanapaisal said at a news conference that "everyone is strong in mind and heart", The Washington Post reported.

Rescuers are sent inside Tham Luang Nang Non cave to continue the rescue after the 12 boys and their soccer coach have been found alive in the cave where they've been missing for over a week after monsoon rains blocked the main entrance on July 03, 2018 in Chiang Rai, Thailand.

Speaking earlier Wednesday, health ministry inspector Tongchai Lertvirairatanapong said the boys were in "good condition", despite each losing an average of two kilograms (4.4 pounds) in weight during their time in the cave.

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

The first four boys are healthy and can eat regular food, Thongchai said at Monday's press briefing, adding that those in the second group suffering from lung inflammation were getting better.

The complex, high-risk mission for global and Thai divers to guide the boys and coach through the cave's flooded and tight passageways had riveted people worldwide.

Twelve boys and Mr Ekkapol entered Tham Luang cave on June 23 and were trapped inside by high floodwater.

The Navy released new footage of emergency crews diving through the cave and carrying people out on stretchers.

Football Academy has thanked all local and foreign rescuers for rescuing its coach and team members and hopes they can return to the field soon.

The dangers of the rescue were brought into sharp relief last Friday by the death of a retired Thai Navy SEAL as he ran out off air in the flooded cave complex as the extraction plans were being laid.

The decision, a response to the global outpouring of love and support during the hard operation to rescue the boys, draws attention to the large numbers of stateless people living in Thailand, especially in its border regions.

They discovered the group on a ledge surrounded by water after nine days trapped underground.

Thailand's prime minister, Prayuth Chan-o-cha, said the boys were given anti-anxiety medication to help with their rescue. Relatively mild weather and a massive effort to pump out water created a window of opportunity. In underwater parts, they were pulled along in a dream-like state by divers.

The last of the Wild Boars team were brought to the surface on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, reports say the boys and the coach were sedated to stop them panicking during the unsafe rescue.
