World soccer governing body has invited the boys soccer team in Thailand rescued from a flooded cave this week to FIFA's annual awards event.
FIFA President Gianni Infantino announced that they will be invited to come to London, where the world's best player prize will be presented on Sepember 24.
The 12 boys and their coach were also asked to attend the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday but they were unable to accept for medical reasons, after being rescued between Sunday and Tuesday to end a two-week ordeal.
Infantino says FIFA will see how they will involve the team in another football event, possibly in Thailand.
