Rangers midfielder Steven Davis is now officially the most capped outfield player in Northern Ireland football history after pulling on his country’s jersey for the 113th time.

The 34-year-old was as composed, creative and driven as ever as Northern Ireland put in a spirited display against European heavyweights Germany.

The Ulstermen eventually lost the tie 2-0, but it’s the first dropped points of their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign.

Victory might’ve gone to Germany on the night, but it didn’t stop fans from across football lavishing praise on the Rangers’ midfielder’s achievements.

 

Davis is now only six caps off levelling Northern Ireland goalkeeping legend Pat Jennings, who is sitting on 119.

Still fit as ever and looking just as capable at both Ibrox and Windsor Park, don’t bet against him beating it.

The midfielder has been a consistent presence in the heart of the Northern Ireland midfield over the last 14 years – Davis’ first cap came in the 1-0 against Canada in February 2005.

Now, he continues to be that driving force of a side who are making a real fist of Euro 2020 qualification in a group which has both Germany and the Netherlands.
