Steven Gerrard could win his 100th England cap in the friendly against Sweden next week, joining a select group of players.

Here we look at the other members of the England centurions club.

PETER SHILTON (125 caps, 1970-1990)

Shilton, who started out his long career at home town club Leicester, made his England debut against East Germany at Wembley in 1970. He would go on to feature at the European Championship twice as well as three World Cups, reaching the semi-finals in 1990.

DAVID BECKHAM (115 caps, 1996-2009)

Beckham remains England's most-capped outfield player, having made his debut for new manager Glenn Hoddle against Moldova in September 1996. The former Manchester United and Real Madrid man captained England at two World Cups, coming full circle after being vilified for his sending-off against Argentina at the 1998 finals in France.

BOBBY MOORE (108 caps, 1962-1973)

West Ham centre-back Moore led England to World Cup glory at Wembley in 1966 and was respected throughout the game for his superb defending and sportsmanship - featuring in a famous photograph embracing Brazilian legend Pele after their clash at the 1970 World Cup. He passed away in 1993 aged 51 and Moore's statue now stands at the front of Wembley.

BOBBY CHARLTON (106 caps, 1958-1970)

Manchester United midfielder Charlton was part of the 1966 World Cup-winning squad, and remains England's all-time record goalscorer with 49. Charlton's last appearance for the Three Lions came in the quarter-final defeat to West Germany at the 1970 World Cup, which made him at the time England's most capped outfield player.

BILLY WRIGHT (105 caps, 1946-1959)

Wolves defender Wright was England's first centurion, the team captain earning his 100th cap against Scotland at Wembley in 1959. Wright was also skipper of the England team which suffered a shock defeat to the United States at the 1950 World Cup in Brazil, but would go on to play again at two more tournaments. He passed away aged 70, his ashes scattered on the pitch at Molineux, outside where his statue now stands.
