I'm surprised FIFA hasn't done anything to acknowledge the ordeal of the 12 Thai soccer players and their coach, even at the risk that some might view it with cynicism. After all, they are soccer players and the ordeal is taking place during soccer's greatest show. I'm sure the instinct for some kind of gesture would have kicked in if the kids were from Europe or N. America.

They were invited to the Final

Although that will not go through, due to the incubation period, as well as psychological concerns.

I am sure they will be recognized in some other way.

I THINK...


...something before kickoff, like they do in response to terrorist incidents in America and Europe, would have been much better. And it's not too late. Heck, I didn't even know about the FIFA offer.

THE GESTURE NEED NOT WAIT FOR THE RESCUE

It could have been done - some show of sympathy - while the ordeal lasted. In fact that might have been the best time to do it.

I agree. They should have sent two teams into the cave to play a group mat h in front of the boys. :tic: FIFA don't have to implement your thoughts or idea. They've done what they feel is right. Lets keep praying for the safe return of the boys rather than turning this into another issue

I'm surprised that at 2.15pm when you posted this, you were still not aware that FIFA invited them to the WC final on Sunday.
The information has been in the public domain for several hours. :idea:

THE FACT THAT I DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT IT TELLS YOU HOW WELL IT'S BEEN PUBLICIZED, AND...


...BTW, we don't all live in the same time zone. That said, what's wrong with a 30-second show of solidarity in the center circle before one or more of these matches? I've seen them done in incidents of terrorism.

The Thai coach has offered to help the Eagles for free. Methinks he needs to go to jail. He's no hero.

...Thailand is a land of one language, one large ethnicity, hence the boys and their coach represent the whole country. If this were in Africa, and the kids were of different tribe from the president or some oga at the top, no rescue or some halfhearted moves will be made with throwing of book speeches, and english-like inquest, and big big language.

You have been spending too much time reading the posts of Bouncer, Airhead and Sabiyansh.

When Ebola struck, was the successful coordinated effort disrupted by ethnic, political and religious differences? Or self-serving Bully12-inspired grammatical assaults?
Talk true. :idea: :D

FIFA has offered them tickets for the WC final.
