Real Madrid and Barça invite Thai 'cave kids' to visit
11 July 2018 @ 23:36

SPAIN'S two most successful football teams have invited the 12 Thai schoolboys and their sports coach to a match once they are fully recovered after their ordeal of more than two weeks in a flooded cave in the northern province of Chiang Rai.

Real Madrid noticed via the TV news that one of the boys from the Thailand-based Wild Boars Football Club was wearing a shirt for the Spanish premier league team and contacted the embassy in Bangkok to invite the group to the Santiago Bernabéu stadium as a 'reward' for their 'bravery and aplomb'.

Not to be outdone, Real Madrid's main rival FC Barcelona decided to invite them to the Camp Nou stadium to take part in football-related activities, tour the grounds and watch a match while they were in the country visiting the team based in the capital.

They will be able to join in the annual Barça Academy meeting and take part in Masía 360 events.
