Steven Gerrard is expected to earn his 100th England cap in Wednesday's friendly against Sweden.
He made his international debut in a 2-0 win against Ukraine on 31 May 2000 at Wembley, starting in a five-man midfield named by manager Kevin Keegan. The game also marked Alan Shearer's last at Wembley.
Gerrard will join such illustrious company as Peter Shilton, David Beckham, Bobby Moore and Bobby Charlton, and will become only the sixth player to join this exclusive club.
Here we take a look at some of the player’s finest moments for club and country.
