Interview: Barry Middleton on reaching 400 international caps

December 5, 2017

On Monday 4th December, Barry Middleton became only the fifth hockey player in history to play 400 senior internationals. The milestone occurred in England's Pool B meeting with Australia, a match that finished with the scores locked at 2-2.

The England and Great Britain international joined Dutchman Teun de Nooijer (453 caps), India's Dilip Tirkey (412), Pakistan's Waseem Ahmad (410) and Jeroen Delmee of the Netherlands (401) as a member of the 400 club, having racked up the tally since making his international debut in 2003 at the age of 19. 

Speaking to FIH immediately after the Australia match, Middleton said: "I know it is something that when I am older I’ll look back on and be really proud about.” The full interview can be seen below.
