MIDFIELDER Seb Larsson’s appearance at Leicester City last weekend was the 300th league outing of his career – coming a week after he broke the record for the most international caps won as a Sunderland player.

However, the former Birmingham City man is not dwelling on either milestone.

“These records are positive I suppose, but to be honest, you don’t think about it too much when you’re playing,” added the 29-year-old.

“I might enjoy it a bit more when I retire if the record is still there. At least it shows that you’ve kept some sort of standard going for a few years.”
