Rachel Corsie says it “will feel quite special” to draw level on 123 Scotland caps with Ifeoma Dieke should she play against Wales on Tuesday.

The Scotland captain would become the joint-ninth most capped women’s player.

And the 31-year-old says it would “mean a lot” should she earn the accolade in Llanelli.

“When I first came into the team Ife was probably the only player at the time at centre back who played professionally,” she said. “She was someone who I looked up to. It was obviously a time I was working full-time and training as much as I could.

“So to match achievements like that and be alongside players who have really been paramount to the growth and success of the women’s game, it does mean a lot and it’s a nice reminder to appreciate every single moment you get playing for the national team and to have these opportunities.”

Listen above to the highlights of Rachel Corsie’s press conference to preview Tuesday’s game with Wales.
