Can’t imagine what that first period before anyone at all got to them felt like. Just sitting there in the dark, starving and assuming … :frowning:

I hope they get all the support they need - like once all the elation and visits to Man U (someone said world cup final? not sure how that would work) and all that stuff wears off.

FIFA invited them but it’s not going to work because it’s too soon, so they’ve said they’ll invite them to some other FIFA event in the future.

They’ll be paraded around the world for a bit before being forgotten about a la the Chilean miners: https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/639433/Chilean-miners-the-33-antontonio-banderas-juan-illanes-San-Jose-mine

I really hope we ever see them (if you get what I’m saying). I’m no child psychology expert, but can’t imagine that turning them into 5 min celebrities over the next few months is going to benefit them at all.
