Chiang Rai, Thailand (CNN) – Members of a Thai youth soccer team and their coach, who spent more than two weeks trapped inside a flooded cave, have described their rescue as a miracle, thanked the experts who saved them and discussed how the experience will affect the rest of their lives.

In their first public remarks since their rescue last week, the boys recounted their side of an extraordinary story that captured the imagination of the world.

Dressed in matching team shirts, the boys and their coach appeared happy and relaxed as they faced the world’s media after being discharged from the hospital in Chiang Rai on Wednesday.

The boys, all members of the Wild Boars junior soccer team, introduced themselves to the media, shared their nicknames and told the audience what position they played on the team.

    Saw the report on the local news. The boys look a lot better than they did when they were rescued. I understand they all lost an average of 9 pounds during their ordeal, but they are regaining their weight.

    As the article states, there is a possibility of long-term psychological trauma from their ordeal. I pray that they will all recover physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
