Boys rescued from Thai cave play in Argentina

The Associated Press

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — The 12 boys and soccer coach from Thailand who were found in a partially flooded cave are again capturing the media's attention.

The team played a friendly match Sunday against the River Plate youth soccer team of Argentina.

The Wild Boars soccer team participated a day prior in the opening ceremony of the Youth Olympic Games, which is taking place from Oct. 6-18 in the South American country.

The boys became well known after they were trapped in a cave on June 23. They were found by two British divers and brought out in a daring rescue mission that ended on July 10.

Nearly 4,000 athletes between the ages of 15 and 18 will participate in the games.
