Thai military honor guards transport a coffin containing the remains of a former Thai Navy Seal Petty Officer 1st class Saman Kunan, who died in the ongoing Tham Luang cave rescue operations, during a repatriation ceremony at Mae Fah Luang worldwide airport in Chiang Rai province, Thailand.

The Thai footballers, aged 11-16, have been stuck in darkness deep underground after setting off to explore the cave with their 25-year-old coach after training on June 23.

Dozens of Royal Thai Army soldiers rested on rocks outside the cave, with two of them saying they had been told by superiors that the rescue operation would likely begin Sunday or the day after. Monsoon flooding cut off their escape and prevented rescuers from finding them for nearly 10 days as the only way to reach them was by navigating dark and tight passageways filled with muddy water and strong currents.

The letter signed by Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino also said the organisation would like to invite the youngsters and their coach to the World Cup final in Russia, should they be rescued in time and are healthy enough to travel.

In a rare piece of good news, rescuers on Friday cleared enough water from inside the cave to be able to wade to one of the cave's chambers located about 1.7 kms from the boys' location without diving.

The path out is considered especially complicated because of twists and turns in narrow flooded passages. "They will feel very guilty".

However, heavy rain is expected on Saturday, which could mean water levels rise again. More rains are forecast for the region and could complicate further rescue efforts.

Kunan was one of about 80 Thai Navy SEALs who volunteered for the rescue mission.

Cave rescue experts have said it could be safest to simply supply the boys where they are, and wait for the flooding to subside.

"We are afraid of the weather and the (lack of) oxygen in the cave but we have to try to set the plan and find which plan is the best". It is only a small battle we've won, but the war has not ended.

The boys sounded calm and reassuring in handwritten notes to their families that were made public Saturday. I would like to thank you for moral support and I apologise to all parents.

"I've told Yod to get ready to take me out for fried chicken". Please don't worry too much about me and take care of yourselves. Dad, Mom, Sister Nam, grandparents and all relatives give you encouragement always. "Love you all", wrote Mick.

He appeared to be communicating on Twitter with a Thai user who was liaising with local rescue efforts.

"We are awed by the bravery and strength that these young boys and their coach have shown amidst such frightening circumstances", it said on its website.

To all kids' parents, at this moment, kids are well.

"On behalf of the worldwide football community, I would like to join you in expressing my deepest sympathies and support to the families of the players and coach, as well as my solidarity with the people of Thailand at this time of great concern".

The Seal commander said oxygen levels in their shelter had dropped, but said a doctor was with the team monitoring their health. And without proper oxygen levels, staying put could also prove deadly.

"When Saman placed the canisters he was on his way back and while he was returning he had lost consciousness".

Former Thai Navy SEAL Saman Kunan, who died in the Tham Luang Nang Non cave complex during a massive rescue operation to save 12 boys and their soccer coach.

SEAL commander Arpakorn Yookongkaew told a news conference Friday morning that the rescuer was working in a volunteer capacity and died during an overnight mission in which he was placing oxygen canisters.

"See you in Chiang Rai" was the message circulated in a group chat of former Seal officers as they learned about a search and rescue mission for the Moo Pa Academy players and their coach.

James Yenbamroong, who founded satellite communications provider mu Space Corp, tweeted that the "SpaceX team reached out to us today to help connect to Thai govt". Musk's Boring Company digs tunnels for advanced transport systems and has advanced ground-penetrating radar.
