Teenage Football Team Trapped In A Thai Cave - Be Strong For Rescue [GreenHunters Sports International]


GreenHunters Sports International CEO Benson Chukwueke has sent a message of hope to the soccer team trapped in a Thai cave.

"On behalf of the whole GreenHunters team we pray earnestly and hoping for your safe rescue.
Stay strong and we are with you. We are following all the news and hoping every second that you see the daylight again."


The 12 boys, aged between 11 and 16 years old, entered the cave on June 23 with their soccer coach, only to become stranded in the dark tunnels by a sudden and continuous downpour. It took rescuers nine days to finally locate the missing soccer team after having to navigate tight and flooded passages.

Efforts continue as rescuers try and formulate a plan to get the boys out before flood waters rise any higher -- according to a medical assessment it was too dangerous to try to move the group out Thursday.

"We are all very optimistic that will happen in the next few -- hopefully -- minutes, hours or next day," Chukwueke said. Borrowing the words of Liverpool Manager, Jurgen Klopp.

"Stay strong, best regards here from Liverpool. We are you with you, you will never walk alone," adds Liverpool's German manager in reference to the song Liverpool fans sing before every home match at Anfield.

Divers have been able to bring food, blankets and other supplies to the boys while experts debate how to get them out safely.

The team was found around two kilometers (1.24 miles) into the cave and somewhere between 800 meters to one kilometer below the surface, according to a British Cave Rescue Council briefing note.


 The team was found alive by British divers. The search has brought rescue teams from all over the world. A Thai military medic provides first aid to one of the boys.

Football world urges boys to 'be strong'
Chukwueke's message comes after Liverpool Jurgen Klopp, Real Madrid President and Brazilian star Ronaldo told reporters "football world hopes that someone can find a way" to extract the boys.


FIFA is in close contact with the Football Association of Thailand over the boys' plight.

"We hope that with the help of the rescue team, the boys and their coach will be brought safely out of the cave so that they can be reunited with their families," the governing body said in a statement.
