The 12 children who were rescued from flooded caves in Thailand a few months ago will be at Old Trafford today to watch Manchester United play against Everton.
The youngsters, all members of a junior football team, were rescued in July after being trapped for over two weeks. Their plight gained worldwide attention and in the aftermath the children were invited to a United game by the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.
The boys met Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho on Saturday and according to reports, the youngsters will walk by the side of the pitch before watching the Premier League encounter from the directors’ box.
After their rescue at that time, United tweeted: ‘We would love to welcome the team from Wild Boars Football Club and their rescuers to Old Trafford this coming season.’
They arrived in England this week and visited Manchester United’s Carrington training ground where they posed for photos with midfielders Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera including manager Jose Mourinho and his assistant Michael Carrick.
