In a letter that was sent to the Football Association of Thailand, FIFA President Gianni Infantino invited the 12 schoolchildren and their coach who were trapped in the partially-flooded Tham Khao Luang Cave in Thailand to the 2018 FIFA World Cup final that will be held in Moscow on July 15.

"If, as we all hope, they are reunited with their families in the coming days and their health allows them to travel, FIFA would be delighted to invite them to attend the 2018 World Cup final in Moscow as our guests," Infantino stated. FIFA noted that it has been keeping track of the news about the rescue operation since June 23.
