DATE: 03.09.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK
Andy King came on as a
sub for Wales in their World Cup qualifier v. Austria and played his
40th full international game. This also ment that King broke a
special record for Leicester City
He is now the most capped player in the history of Leicester
City. King passed defender John O'Neill who had 39 caps to his name
while at the club, representing N Ireland. O'Neill was just like
Andy King playing a great number of seasons at Leicester.
King came on as a sub for 2nd half against Austria, and helped Wales
to a 1-0 win. King came in for, in form, Cardiff midfielder Jazz
Richards. Liverpool youngster Benjamin Woodburn scored the winner
after comnig on as a sub for former fox Tom Lawrence.
Andy King is always around breaking records and also been playing
for City in this campaign, coming on as a sub against Manchester
United and playing from start in the EFL Cup v. Sheffield United,
assisting with a great pass on one of the goals of Slimani.
King played in the Euro's semi final last summer, with that great
run of games for Wales, while the former record holder John O'Neill
represented Leicester in two World Cup's, in 82 and 86.
Gordon Banks still helds the record, 37 caps, playing for England as
a Leicester City player, with Jamie Vardy in 2nd place, currently on
17. Vardy came off the bench, this time in a 4-0 win v.
Malta. Harry Maguire made the England squad for the first time, but
was not including in the match squad
Among the players regarded as foreigners, Kasper Schmeichel is the
one representing City in most internationals. He made his 26th
appearance for his country, Denmark, in their
great 4-0 home win v. Poland.
Kelechi Iheancho, Wilfred Ndidi and Ahmed Musa all played in their 4-0 home win v. Cameroon. Iheanacho scored the fourth goal
coming on as a sub. Nididi played all 90 minutes, with Musa entering
the field late in the game, replacing Chelsea's Moses in the 83rd
Shinji Okazaki came on as a late sub in Japan's great 2-0 home win
v. Australia. This result was one of great importance, securing the
qualification for the World Cup in Russia next summer.
Adrien Silva and Riyad Mahrez never played due to the speculations
regarding transfers on deadline day. Silva was lucky in his attempt
to make a move, signing for Leicester City, while Mahrez never moved
and will return and join up with the City squad later in the week.
Islam Slimani played all 90 minutes for Algeria, but without Mahrez
things never worked out, defeated 3-1 away to Zambia.
Demarai Gray, George Thomas and Alex Pascanu were other City players
involved in internationals this week, playing at U.21 level for
England, Wales and Rumania. Thomas made his U.21 debut and scored
the last goal in the great 3-0 win v. Switzerland.
Former foxes Jeff Schlupp and N'Golo Kantè were also on show.
Schlupp playing for Ghana and Kantè being a key master in another
amazing 4-0 win, trashing a Dutch national team in crisis.
