Harry Souttar travels down under as his Australia will take on Ecuador in two friendles on the 24th and 28th of March. A long travel of course, but Leicester do have an Australian connection from the past, so to see players fly the globe to get to games is not at all unusual.

Chris Wood is a former player with a similar life as his travels went even further, as he represent New Zealand. Harry Souttar decided in 2019 to make the change to Australia from Scotland, being born in Aberdeen and previously represented Scotland at U.17 and U.19 level.

He is not the first Australian player to join Leicester, as they are 7th in the list of foreign players, with Souttar being player number 8 of players coming from Australia.

Steve Corica, Zeilko Kalac, Paul Henderson, Mark Schwarzer, Patrick Kisnorbo, Danny Tiatto and James Wesolowski are the other 7 to have played first team football at Leicester.

Harry Souttar had a great game vs. Brentford and showed his qualities. He did show during the World Cup that he can cope with the very best and the way Australia played in the finals, you just have to be impressed.

Looking at the table of players at Leicester, England comes on top with 730 players, Scotland are 2nd with 1999, 3rd are Wales with 33. Ireland comes next with 32, N Ireland are 15, France behind them with 12, and then comes Australia with their 8 players.
