    The six Europeans with 200 international caps | UEFA Women’s EURO

    No man has reached 200 senior international caps but more than 20 female players have, including six Europeans.

    We salute the six history-making double-centurions.

    214: Birgit Prinz (Germany)

    The joint-most-capped European also has the record goal tally of 128, not to mention winning two FIFA Women’s World Cups, five UEFA Women’s EUROs and two Olympic bronze medals. The top scorer and player of the tournament at the 2003 World Cup, striker Prinz was the figurehead of the Germany team that dominated Europe and often further afield pretty much from her debut in 1994 to retirement in 2011. Now a sports psychologist at TSG Hoffenheim.

    214: Therese Sjögran (Sweden)

    Sjögran bowed out at the 2015 World Cup by equalling Prinz’s European caps record. The hard-working central midfielder went to 11 major tournaments at the core of a fantastic Swedish side, but twice fell in epic finals to Prinz’s Germany, at Women’s EURO 2001 and the 2003 World Cup.

    210: Katrine Pedersen (Denmark)

    The defender, and occasional midfielder, enjoyed an international career that stretched from 1994 to 2013, when she retired pregnant. Her club career took her to England, Norway, Sweden and Australia, while with Denmark she played at seven major tournaments – her first the 1995 World Cup aged 18. Now works as a teacher.

    209: Caroline Seger (Sweden)

    The only active European on over 200 caps, and with a real chance of overhauling Prinz and her long-time Sweden team-mate Sjögran, midfielder Seger made her senior Sweden bow in 2005, going to the first of her (so far) four Women’s EUROs later that year. A 2016 Olympic silver medal and two World Cup bronzes are just some of the rewards Seger’s talent has yielded. A veteran of 11 major tournaments, she should add at least the 2020 Olympics and Women’s EURO 2022 to that total.

    204: Patrizia Panico (Italy)

    Like Prinz (and Scotland’s Julie Fleeting and Italy’s Carolina Morace), Panico ended her career with more than 100 international goals. After her final cap in 2014, awarded 18 years after her debut, it seemed strange not to see her up front – and scoring – for the Azzurre. Since 2018, a coach of Italy’s men’s U15 team.

    203: Gemma Fay (Scotland)

    The most-capped goalkeeper, male or female, ever, Fay’s international career ran from 1998 to 2017. In that time Scotland went from a team in Europe’s then Class B (competing for promotion rather than qualification) to one that reached a major finals at UEFA Women’s EURO 2017, where Fay won her last three caps. Now a senior figure in Scottish women’s rugby union.
