Former Australia soccer captain and the country’s most capped player, Cheryl Salisbury, will become the first female footballer to be inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame next month.

Widely considered the pioneer of women’s soccer in Australia, Salisbury will receive one of the highest laurels in sports in the country on Oct. 10 when she is inducted as an Athlete Member of The Sport Australia Hall of Fame.

The centre back went on to play in four World Cups and two Olympic Games, scoring 38 goals for the Matildas. The first of four World Cup appearances in 1995 was an exciting experience.

FIFA has twice honoured Salisbury by naming her in the Women’s World XI squad, in 2004 and 2007.
