Federation Internationale de Football Association boss invites Thai cave boys to World Cup final

Navy diver dies in attempt to deliver supplies to boys trapped in Thai cave

The boys will have to be taught how to use scuba diving gear and how to navigate a cave that has frustrated even the most expert divers.

The navy is also seeking permission to posthumously promote Saman, who was a petty officer first class when he left the unit, Channel News Asia reports.

"His job was to deliver oxygen (in the cave)".

Rescuers have been unable to extend a hose pumping oxygen all the way to where the boys are, but have brought them some oxygen tanks.

The warning came a day after a Thai diver died during part of the rescue operation, marking a deadly turn in what started out as a celebration of one of the boys' birthdays at the Tham Luang cave complex in northern Chiang Rai province.

Thai military officials have been briefed, the source said, and the country's Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha was to be told about the plan Saturday morning. "Think about it, a Navy Seal just passed away last night, so how about a 12-year-old kid", said Rafael Aroush, an Israeli diver helping the rescue bid.

Many fans on social media said the boys deserved the World Cup trophy for the way they have handled their ordeal. "This is what we train for, this is what we have to face, an incident like this can always happen but we're not losing our motivation", he told reporters (via the ABC). "We will not let our fallen brother die in vain".

The boys, aged 11-16, and their 25-year-old coach went exploring in the cave after a soccer game June 23.

Kevin Durant Plans to Re-Sign With Golden State Warriors
After playing last season with the Minnesota Timberwolves , Crawford chose to opt out of his contract and test free agency. He has agreed to a four-year, $137 million max contract with the Thunder , with a player option on the fourth year.

Asked how the boys could make it out safely if an experienced diver could not, Mr Yookongkaew said the rescue team would take more precautions with children. The boys are said to be too weak from malnutrition to even make the trek.

Divers took the boys letters written by family members camped outside the cave but an attempt to send down a phone failed earlier this week. They were found on July 2, but because of the difficulty of their position in the cave, they can't be rescued yet.

The US official said a plan to route oxygen into the chamber where the boys are was also called off due to challenge of routing cable through cave system.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino invited the boys to the World Cup final in Moscow - if they are rescued in time and feel healthy enough to travel.

Elon Musk says he is sending engineers from two of his companies to Thailand to see if they can help bring out the members of a youth soccer team trapped in a flooded cave.

A navy source who spoke to the ABC on the condition of anonymity said that there are three factors driving the urgency of the rescue.

Asked at his news conference about bringing the boys out underwater, Chiang Rai Governor Narongsak Osatanakorn replied: "Not today because they can not dive at this time". We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

Ekapol Chanthawong, the coach of the Wild Boars football team, wrote: "To the parents of all the kids, right now the kids are all fine, the crew are taking good care".
