Rachel Yankey has become England's most capped international player.

The Arsenal Ladies midfielder has beaten former men's goalkeeper Peter Shilton's record of 125 caps.

Yankey played in England's 1-1 draw against Japan on Wednesday.

As part of the FA's 150th anniversary celebrations, 4,500 school children will also be going to watch the match for free.

Yankey was part of the Team GB squad at the 2012 Olympics and has played in two World Cups.

She made her first England appearance in 1997, but back then as a 17-year-old things weren't as glamorous.

"My first international kit was an extra large men's kit, it was ridiculous," she says!
