England's Rachel Yankey is keen to add to her international caps after matching Peter Shilton's record of 125 during Sunday's 1-0 win over Canada .

The 33-year-old is set to travel to the 2013 European Championships in Sweden in July, but could break the record on 26 June in a friendly against Japan.

England's most capped - women
•Rachel Yankey: 125 caps
•Gillian Coultard: 119 caps
•Kelly Smith: 113 caps
•Fara Williams: 112 caps
•Casey Stoney: 109 caps
•Rachel Unitt: 102 caps

"It's a privilege and an honour to play as many times as a legend like Peter Shilton," Yankey told BBC Sport.

Yankey is one of six female centurions for the Three Lions.

And she added: "I would love to go to the Euro's and play and do well with this team, so hopefully that can happen."

England completed back-to-back wins over Canada, with Sunday's 1-0 win coming after victory by the same scoreline at the Cyprus Cup in March , with Yankey scoring the winner in that competition.
