The group had been missing for nine days after being trapped in the cave by floodwaters but were found by military divers on July 2.

However, low oxygen levels underground and torrential rain forecasts have started to speed up the rescue effort.

"To all the parents, all the kids are still fine".

The Facebook page said the assistant coach, Ekkapol Chanthawong, and the boys gave the letters to a team of foreign divers at night on Friday. I would like to thank you for all the moral support.

Thai social media filled with tributes to the fallen hero.

The Thai authorities had considered providing enough supplies to the trapped boys so that can survive in the cave for a few extra months until the monsoon season is over. Players from teams including England and Sweden have recorded good luck video messages for the trapped boys, and Federation Internationale de Football Association has invited the 13 to the World Cup final should they be rescued in time and are healthy enough to travel. "Aunt, please tell grandma to do vegetables paste and crispy pork skin".

"I'm anxious about the rain", said Visunlaya Songjang, 59, a volunteer from Mae Sai. "I'm here to help out in any way I can".

Chiang Rai acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said rescuers are "at war with water", and that experts told him flooding from new rain could shrink the unflooded space where the boys are sheltering to just 10 square metres (108 square feet).

Another boy, 13-year-old Sompong "Pong" Jaiwong, put on a courageous face: "Dear Mum and Dad, I love you".

"I'm fine", wrote another one.

While details of the new plan emerged, Thai officials stressed that the boys were not yet ready to attempt a risky dive to freedom.

Eyebrows were raised among the England supporters when they saw Dier making the long walk to take the final penalty. Getting over that line was huge for us. "It was nice to get it off our back and we can move forward now".

There is "limited time" to bring out 12 schoolboys and their soccer coach who have been trapped for two weeks inside a flooded cave in northernThailand before heavy rains set in, the rescue mission's head said on Saturday.

The SEAL commander raised the possibility that the boys' location on a muddy patch above the water may not stay dry for long, as heavy monsoon rains could flood the cave again.

"We have to make a clear decision on what we can do".

But his comments 12 hours later suggest the thinking has changed, with water levels inside the cave now managed to their lowest point by constant drainage.

Rescue operations were dealt a blow late on Thursday when a former Thai navy Seal diver died during the rescue efforts.

Teams are drilling multiple shafts through hundreds of meters of mountainside to try to reach them while industrial pumps are working round the clock in an attempt to clear the tunnels and hopefully allow them to escape by foot. Rescuers have drilled nearly 100 shafts into the cave but aren't optimistic about breaking through to the boys.

"Some (of the chimneys) are as deep as 400 metres - but they still can not find their location yet", Narongsak Osottanakorn told reporters, adding the mission lacked the technology "to pinpoint where they are staying".

"Despite this, we will continue until we accomplish our mission", Arpakorn said.

Numerous boys are unable to swim and none have any scuba experience.

Saman Guman, a former Thai Navy Seal, died while trying to deliver oxygen tanks to the trapped soccer team.

MAE SAI, Thailand-Authorities working to rescue a teenage soccer team from a flooded cave in northern Thailand said they would withdraw nonessential personnel from a staging area in the cave over concerns that air quality could drop to a unsafe level. "We are racing against water (that is) flowing into the cave although we have plugged its channels".
