Barcelona have invited the 12 boys rescued from flooded caves in Thailand to the club’s academy international tournament and to matches at the Camp Nou.

The team made headlines after they became trapped in caves and had to be rescued by Thai Navy Seals in a dangerous rescue attempt which captured the world’s attention.

All 12 boys and their coach were rescued safely and have now been invited to Barcelona once they have recovered from their ordeal.

The boys have been inundated with invites since their plight became world news. It’s been reported they’ve been invited to Sunday’s World Cup final but are unlikely to attend.
