Benfica invites cave survivors for a week's training at academy

Portuguese football team Benfica has told the Thai ambassador in Lisbon that the youths rescued from a cave in Thailand are invited to spend a week at the club’s training centre in Seixal.

The 12 youths aged between 11 and 16 and their coach went to explore the case on 23 June, but Monsoon rains blocked their exit.

The last five of the 13 were brought safely back to the surface on Tuesday alive and well.

"We believe that this simple invitation can help the youths to rekindle the happiness and the smiles that no child must ever lose", Benfica said.
