Stoke keeper Sorensen not considering Denmark retirement

Stoke City goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen has no plans for international retirement.

The Dane is on 86 caps and is chasing the 100-cap landmark.

Sorensen, who celebrates his 34th birthday on Saturday June 12 and has just overcome a dislocated elbow, told The Sentinel: "I definitely want to carry on.

"Our manager, Morten Olsen, has signed on for European qualifying and that is important for me, because you never know whether a new manager might come in and have new ideas.

"I think only three or four Danish players have played 100 internationals and so it would be a great achievement for me.

"Peter Schmeichel has the record with over 120, so I think that one is safe.

"I think I'm the 10th most capped player in the history of Danish football, so to get to 100 would be a nice round figure and a fantastic achievement."
