Video: Zlatan Ibrahimovic Surprises Thai Cave Boys on the Ellen DeGeneres Show

The twelve boys rescued from a cave in Thailand were left stunned this week, as they met their footballing idol, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Back in June, the Wild Boars junior football team became trapped when heavy rains partially flooded a cave with them and their coach inside.

A complex and daring rescue mission was then authorised, with over 10,000 people involved, as water was successfully pumped from the cave.

The group have since fully recovered from their terrifying ordeal and made an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show this week, their first televised interview.

And to make it all the more special… LA Galaxy superstar Ibrahimovic made a surprise appearance:

Zlatan told the boys, “I thought I was brave but this team, these kids are braver than me…. this is probably the best team in the world.”

The Swede then presented the lads with all sorts of Galaxy-themed merchandise, along with tickets to their next match against Minnesota United.
