A few weeks ago in Thailand, a teenage football team and their coach were reported to be missing after some heavy rains in the middle of a jungle. Eventually they were found alive in a flooded cave complex.
Families were exposed to a wide range of emotions: anxiety, fear, drama, happiness, hope... It seems that this drama that could have ended in tragedy (actually, one of the divers died because of the lack of oxygen) may turn out to be a miracle if all the group is rescued safe and sound.
As you can see, football provides us with emotions not only in the World Cup in Russia, but also in ordinary lives.
Here are some articles for you to read about the issue:
