Mr. Narongsak Osotthanakorn, the head of the cave rescue operation and now governor of Phayao, on Saturday represented all the rescued footballers and their coach in reading a eulogy written for former navy SEAL diver Saman Kunan, at his funeral held at Wat Ban Nong Khu temple in Roi Et province on Saturday.
