Eight boys and coach remain trapped.

Narongsak said Saturday that experts told him water from new rain could shrink the unflooded space where the boys are sheltering to just 10 square meters (108 square feet). Narongsak Osottanakorn, the head of the rescue operation, said the boys had khao pad grapao, a Thai dish of meat fried with chili and basil and served over rice, in the morning as per their wish. If the rain god helps us, then we may be able to work fast.

Nine people remained trapped in the cave, including the team's coach, after four boys were rescued on Sunday, the first day of the rescue operation.

Workers have been laboring around the clock to pump water out of the cave, and officials said Monday that despite heavy downpours overnight, water levels inside the cave did not rise.

The four boys pulled from the cave Sunday in an urgent and unsafe operation that involved them diving through the cave's tight and twisting passages were in good health.

Fifa's letter said the team's appearance at the final would "undoubtedly be a wonderful moment of communion and celebration" but whether they would make it there in time or if it was a suitable activity for the traumatised group was not known.

"The weather conditions and other environments today are as good as yesterday". Reports said oxygen levels dropped to as low as 15 percent with all the extra bodies coming in and out.

The eight boys who were rescued through Monday had to travel about two and a half miles with oxygen tanks and were accompanied by two professional divers each.

Interior Minister Anupong Paojinda had said early Monday that the same group of expert divers who took part in Sunday's rescue would return to extricate the others because they know the cave conditions and what to do. With the assistance of divers, they swam out with oxygen tanks, along a 2-mile long rope guiding them out.

Typically people would learn to scuba dive before embarking on a more technically challenging cave dive like the one involved in the rescue effort, said Chris Foisey, a St. Catharines, Ont. -based scuba instructor with experience diving through underwater tunnels.

In an indication of how risky the journey can be, a former Thai navy diver died in the caves on Friday.

Four of the 12 schoolboys were rescued from a flooded cave in northern Thailand on Sunday before the operation commenced a 10-hour pause to replenish oxygen supplies.

Injured goalie saves Croatia as Russian Federation beaten in Fifa World Cup quarterfinals
Croatia set up to take this game to the opposition, ditching a traditional midfield and effectively lining up in a 4-2-4. Corners or free-kicks have led to seven goals for England in the tournament. "It's up to us now which games we play in".

Dark clouds and fog shrouded the area around the cave as a steady rain began falling in the early afternoon.

Officials wouldn't say how much diving the boys would be required to do in the rescue operation.

The letter signed by Infantino invited the team and their coach to the World Cup final in Russian Federation on Sunday (NZT 3am Monday), should they be rescued in time and were healthy enough to travel to Moscow.

Rescuers are moving ahead quickly because they are afraid monsoon rains will completely flood the caves.

The ordeal has riveted Thailand and captured the world's attention.

About 90 divers - 50 foreign and 40 Thai - are involved in the operation to remove the boys from the cave, he said.

Even tech billionaire Elon Musk has been lending a helping hand.

On Sunday, Musk tweeted videos of his engineers testing a "kid-size submarine" underwater in Los Angeles - a submarine that apparently is now on its way to Thailand. A few hours later, Michael Safi, a Guardian reporter, confirmed that the sixth boy had been rescued.

"The four children are fine".

The current rescue operation is not, Tracy said, "the preferred option".

"Very fearless and talented people!" he tweeted.
