“I didn’t really give it too much thought leading up to equalling Pat’s record,” said captain Davis.

“But after receiving so many messages from them

it makes you sit up and realise it’s a hell of an achievement.”

Davis captained Northern Ireland through the high of making the Euro 2016 finals

And disappointment of defeat by Switzerland in a World Cup play-off a year later.

He has scored 12 international goals

Steven is now aiming to lead the side to another major tournament.

He added:

“It’s hard to sum up in words what it actually means, it probably wouldn’t do it justice – there’s been a lot of sacrifices made to get to this point.

“I’ve always enjoyed meeting up with the squad and there has been a great bond with the players throughout my time.

The fans have always been fantastic to me as well so it’s something I’m incredibly proud of.

“However, come Thursday the caps side of things will not be in my mind – it’s all about the game.”

The winner of the match in Sarajevo meets either the Republic of Ireland or Slovakia

for a place in next summer’s European Championship,

which was postponed this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
