The 12 boys from the 'Wild Boars' soccer team in Thailand, who were rescued from a cave, are back playing the game they love.

Aged between 11 and 16, the team played a friendly match on Sunday at Argentina's Monumental Stadium, which hosted the 1978 World Cup final.

They were invited by the International Olympic Committee to attend the 2018 Youth Olympic Games, which are taking place from October 6 to 18.

The squad and their manager were trapped in the Tham Luang caves for more than two weeks in June.
