The tour culminated with the team watching the English Premier League match between Manchester United and Everton. Ahead of the game, the 12 boys received applause from fans and supporters. A moment of silence was also given in light of the recent helicopter crash that Thai billionaire and Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha perished in.
