French star footballer Paul Pogba dedicates France’s semi-final win over Belgium to the Thai Cave victims. Pogba took to Twitter instantly after the win, his post read, “This victory goes to the heroes of the day, well done boys, you are so strong.”
Pogba in his tweet touts the survivors as the real heroes of the day.
France beat Belgium by a solitary goal, that was struck by Umtiti in the 51s-minute.
That goal also proved to be the difference against a Belgium side that dominated proceedings. It would have been disappointing for the Belgium who had won all their matches in their road to semi-finals. France now awaits the winner from semi-final 2 that will be played between England and Croatia.
Earlier, in a shocking event, 12 footballers and their coach got trapped in a flooded cave in northern Thailand’s Chiang Rai. Now all of them have been miraculously rescued
“The remaining children along with the coach have left the cave safely. All parents will get to see their sons through a glass at the hospital by tonight,” The Straits Times quoted Head of Thai cave rescue mission Narongsak Osotthanakorn while addressing media on Tuesday.
The Army medic and three other Navy Seals will be out of cave soon, the report said.
“Today is 10 July 2018. It will be longer than previous ones. We will celebrate together finally. Hooyah!” The Thai Navy Seals posted on its Facebook wall.
At least 19 divers, armed with oxygen tanks, entered into the Tham Luang cave near the Thai-Myanmar border at 10 a.m. local time on Tuesday.
