Doctors are still concerned about their health, so the boys, ranging in age from 11 to 16, are being kept in a controlled environment for observation. "So I was wondering how they found us at the right cave".

The Wild Boars team were making their first public appearance after the long ordeal, waving, smiling and offering Thai traditional "wai" greetings on a national TV broadcast.

Adul became famous during the ordeal as he was the only member of the team who could speak fluent English and became the main point of contact for British divers involved in the rescue mission. They kicked footballs around the television set which had goalposts and nets like a soccer field.

Authorities organized a tightly controlled press conference with the boys the same evening in which they recounted drinking water that dripped from rocks and trying to dig their way out during the first nine days before they were located by British divers.

Asked what he had learned from their experience, Boonpiam said he felt stronger.

The Thai soccer team rescued from a cave play soccer with the Thai Navy Seals who helped save them.

Jabari Parker Returning Home on $40M Deal with the Chicago Bulls
No word on the amount of the deal being discussed, or if the Bucks will match, but the move is a curious one for Chicago. Parker is now a restricted free agent and the Bucks have extended him the one-year qualifying offer of $4.3 million.

Four members of the soccer team that were rescued after being trapped in a Thai cave are being considered for Thai citizenship.

The coach, Ekkapol Chantawong said that the boys even dived into the pool to test the water's depths and to determine whether they could swim out later on.

That fateful decision sparked one of the most remarkable, touch-and-go cave rescue operations in history.

Ekarat said sheepishly he wanted to apologize to his parents because while he told them he was going to a cave, he told them the wrong one.

The 12 members of the Wild Boar soccer team and their coach who were trapped in a cave together for two weeks are giving a news conference on Wednesday, as they prepare to return to their homes from a hospital in northern Thailand.

A news conference with the 12 boys and their coach was held in the northern city of Chiang Rai, where the boys have been recovering in a hospital since last week.

A sudden downpour had also flooded the entrance of the tunnel, thus trapping all 13 of them inside. Eventually, they took turns digging for something to do. "We'll do whatever he wants", he said. Contrary to many reports, nearly all of the boys knew how to swim and some were better swimmers than others.

At least 480,000 stateless people live in Thailand, though the actual number could be as high as 3 million - more than 4% of the country's 70 million inhabitants.

The team also revealed that the original plan was to explore the Tham Luang cave for about an hour after they were done with football practice.

Chanin "Titan" Wibrunrungrueang, 11, said: "I tried not to think about food because it would make me hungry".

They made the decision depending on which kids lived the furthest away - they thought they'd go straight home, and the kids who got out first could spread the word, not realizing the global media had descended on the cave.
