Stoke keeper Sorensen chasing down record of Man Utd legend Schmeichel

Stoke City goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen is chasing down the caps record of Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel.

Sorensen will earn his 84th cap when Denmark take on South Korea on Saturday and has his sights set on reaching 100 caps, with Schmeichel's record of 129 caps a harder target.

"I think 100 caps is a more realistic aim at this point," Sorensen said.

"If I can reach that milestone then who knows, but right now another 40 caps is a long way to go.

"It would be wonderful to emulate Peter because he has been such an inspirational figure, not only for me and other keepers in Denmark but also keepers all over the world."
