Rescued Thai schoolboys can’t believe that England are still in the World Cup


The schoolboys freed from the water-filled cave have been treated for shock after finding out that England have reached the semi-finals of the World Cup.  

None of the boys could understand how England had reached the latter stages of the tournament, with some wondering if the draw had delivered duff teams for England to play.

Another schoolboy asked again if this was the squad that included Phil Jones and Danny Welbeck, before the weakened boy was flown to the nearby emergency facility.

‘I bet Sterling still hasn’t scored,’ quipped one of the schoolboys.

‘It sounds like it’s coming home,’ added another.
