Liverpool Ladies star Fara Williams is set to become the most capped player of all-time for England when they face Sweden on Sunday.

The Reds No.4 is in line to win her 130th cap in the friendly international, at Hartlepool United's Victoria Park, breaking the record previously held by Rachel Yankey.

Williams made her senior debut against Portugal in November 2001, before scoring her first goal in the return fixture in February 2002.

It was in the Cyprus Cup of 2012 when Williams joined the illustrious milestone of 100 caps, featuring and scoring the only goal in a 1-0 victory versus Switzerland on March, 1, 2012.

England's Women are set to qualify for the 2015 Women's World Cup finals, with their remaining qualifiers against Wales on August 21 and Montenegro on September 17.

In paying tribute to Williams, Liverpool Ladies boss Matt Beard said: "There is no greater honour than representing your country and to do this so many times is an absolutely fantastic achievement for Fara.

"She is an outstanding footballer who has the best passing range I've ever seen in women's football and I'm sure she will pick up many more caps for her country.

"The move to Liverpool in 2012 seemed to give Fara a new lease of life. She has been a key player for us and was paramount to our title winning campaign last season.

"She is a brilliant character to have in the dressing room and is very much a leader on and off the pitch.

"Fara is a really bubbly character and is very well liked by the other players here. She is a pleasure to work with and a real credit to her profession."

Beard's charges return to action after the international break when they host Chelsea on August 9, at the Select Security Stadium in Widnes.

After their narrow defeat at Manchester City last weekend,  Liverpool currently lie third in the Women's Super League after eight games, five points behind Chelsea and Birmingham City.
