national side as well.
Stoke City are up against Bolton Wanderers in the FA Cup semi-final at the Wembley Stadium on 17 April, 2011. If the Potters are able to beat Bolton, they will face either Manchester United or Manchester City in the final.
Sorensen is hopeful he can feature in the all-important semi-final against Bolton and go on to win the FA Cup with his side.

The former Aston Villa goalkeeper grew up watching the likes of Peter Schmeichel perform in the English Premier League. He said that Schmeichel has been one of the great ambassadors of Danish football as he won numerous titles with Manchester United, including
three FA Cup titles. The 34-year-old wants to follow Schmeichel’s footsteps and collect a FA Cup winner’s medal.
