As ecstatic relatives watched and waved from behind a glass barrier, the 12 boys and their coach rescued from deep within a flooded cave in Thailand made the V-for-Victory sign Wednesday from their beds in a hospital isolation ward where they are recovering from the 18-day ordeal. And the confidence of the diving team, and expertise specific to the cave, grew after its first successful mission on Sunday.

Schoolmates of the rescued boys are also said to be excited about the prospect of welcoming them back.

Students celebrate in front of Chiang Rai Prachanukroh hospital, where the 12 football players and their coach rescued from the Tham Luang cave complex are being treated, in the northern province of Chiang Rai, Thailand, July 11, 2018.

"This was truly a team effort involving Brits, Aussies, Americans and Thais, and the divers told us incredible stories", Scott said.

Some of the boys rescued from a Thai cave seen in hospital in Chiang Rai.

Being able to see the final on Sunday would be a nice treat for the 12 boys and their coach, but they have a good reason for not traveling to Russian Federation. The announcement appeared on the Thai Navy SEALS Facebook page on Tuesday, July 10.

Risks such as the boys' deteriorating physical condition and the possibility of life-saving equipment breaking down mid-mission made the rescue effort particularly risky, Hodges said. Three have slight lung infections.

As of press time, the first eight boys to emerge from the cave were in relatively good health but still in hospital.

Officials plan an interactive museum at the Tham Luang cave based on the historic rescue mission that will feature items such as clothing that key rescuers wore during the operation, Narongsak said.

The Thai Navy Seals also released new video showing the three-day rescue operation that captivated the world. "If this place had a roof, the morale has gone straight through it", he said.

Footage of the remarkable Thailand rescue on Wednesday showed members of the group trapped in a cave being stretchered to freedom while seemingly heavily sedated and wearing wetsuits and diving gear.

Against the odds, the team - ranging in age from 11 to 16 - and their 25-year-old coach were rescued after being stranded in the underground cave network for over two weeks. "Such a attractive moment - all freed, great job!"

Manchester United on Tuesday invited the newly rescued Thai youth soccer team, along with their rescuers, to travel to England to see an upcoming match.

A message posted on the English Premier League club's Twitter account said: "Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected".

"Hooyah! Mission accomplished", read one headline, echoing the rallying cry of the SEAL unit.

With the World Cup reaching its climax, Federation Internationale de Football Association invited the Wild Boars to attend Sunday's final in Moscow between France and the victor of Wednesday's England-Croatia match. However, doctors treating the boys said it was too soon for them to make the trip.
