Alex Morgan earned her 100th senior appearance for the United States women’s national team on Saturday, scoring in a 5-0 win over Ireland.

Morgan’s goal on Saturday was the 57th of her international career.

Morgan debuted for the U.S. senior team on March 31, 2010 in a 1-0 win over Mexico on a snow-covered field at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah. Her 57 goals rank ninth-most in U.S. women’s national team history.

Morgan’s first U.S. senior team goal came on Oct. 6, 2010, in a 1-1 draw with China in Chester, Pa. Her goal late in the match earned the U.S. a draw and preserved a home unbeaten streak which extended to last month, one which ended at 104 games and 11 years with a loss to China.

Here’s a video from 2013 of Morgan looking back on her first cap:
