RESCUED: The Wild Boars and coach

SPAIN’S football league has invited the rescued Thai schoolboy team to watch a match once they have made a full recovery.

President of La Liga, Javier Tebas, said he would like to ‘personally invite’ the Wild Boars and their coach to attend a game and watch their ‘heroes in action in person’.

“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,” added Tebas.

He added that the children, who had undergone 10 days of starvation while trapped in the cave in northern Thailand, are welcome to watch a Spanish game ‘when the time is right’.

One of the 12 school boys had even been wearing a Real Madrid shirt when he was rescued, after over two weeks trapped in the cave.

It comes after the last members of the team and their coach were successfully rescued from the cave on Tuesday night after a 17-day mammoth international rescue mission, involving the Thai Navy Seals.

La Liga announced it had asked all clubs to participate in the gesture.
