Ali Riley will become the fifth player to reach a 100 caps for the Football Ferns when they take on Australia.

The Sweden-based defender will become the fifth player to raise a century for the Football Ferns in Saturday's game at Ballarat, joining Abby Erceg (124), Ria Percival (114), Katie Duncan (113) and Amber Hearn (110).

Riley, 28, doesn't expect to get emotional as she treats every international as a privilege.
