The perilous mission to save the "Wild Boars" soccer team and their coach has gripped the world for days.

The soccer team and their coach got trapped on June 23 after monsoon floods left them trapped as they explored the cave complex in the northern province of Chiang Rai.

It's likely once the rains became heavy, water flooded through the main entrance of the cave and seeped through the limestone walls.

The football team had spent the past week building their strength and learning to dive after they were discovered inside the cave by British divers last Monday.

Officials did not comment on the rescue mission as it took place, so details of the final day of the rescue and the condition of the last five to be brought out were not immediately known.

Former Chiang Rai provincial governor Narongsak Osatanakorn, who has been managing the rescue efforts, told a rowdy crowd in the city that the success of the mission was attributable to "the power of love". The boys' ordeal has captivated the world's attention. If the rain god helps us, then we may be able to work fast.

"Our operation was more successful than we expected", Narongsak said at a press briefing.

Authorities have not confirmed the identity of the rescued boys and some of their parents said they had not been told who had been brought out they were not allowed to visit the hospital where the boys were taken.

Manchester United is greatly relieved to learn that the 12 footballers and their coach trapped in a cave in Thailand are.

Nearly all of the rescued were flown in helicopters, then driven in ambulances to a Chiang Rai hospital.

Two of the boys possibly have a lung infection but all eight are generally "healthy and smiling, " he said. "I felt like he was one of my own children and I wanted him to come home". "I can not understand how cool these small kids are".

The last people to leave the cave were a group of navy SEALs who helped with the rescue.

Thailand's navy SEALs, who played a central part in the rescue effort, wrote on their Facebook page: "We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what".

Onlookers cheered, "Hooyah moo pa!" - a reference to the name of the boys' soccer team, Moo Pa, or Wild Boars. Some cross the border each day to go to school, a routine that Wassana Saebaew, one of their classmates, knows well.
