La Liga Extends Invite To Thai Youth Team Rescued From Flooded Cave

La Liga invited the schoolboy team rescued from a flooded cave in Thailand to "come watch a game once they have recovered from their ordeal" to meet their "heroes," according to the AFP. La Liga President Javier Tebas said in a statement, "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. We'd like to host them and share with them the joy football can give, and I hope this gesture can help after the events of the last few weeks." The boys were trapped for more than two weeks. One of them was wearing a Real Madrid t-shirt. La Liga said that it "messaged all its clubs to invite them to participate" (AFP, 7/11).
