The world rejoiced yesterday when the entire soccer team and their coach were rescued from the cave in Thailand. Now the soccer world is rallying around them. The team has been invited to visit powerhouse Manchester United and they were also invited to the World Cup final. Sadly, they cannot attend the final as the boys are still under medical care and cannot travel. PARTY INVITE
If you build it, they will come (hopefully).

The tennis match will not be moved to accommodate the soccer schedule should England make it. THAT'S A HARD NO
