New Zealand striker Sarah Gregorius has announced her retirement after earning her 100th cap for her country. 

The 32 year-old made her last appearance earlier today for the Silver Ferns in a 1-1 draw against Belgium, before they won 7-6 on penalties in the Algarve Cup. 

Gregorius spent time at several clubs during her career including Three Kings United, SC 07 Bad Neuenahr and Liverpool.

She also worked her way through the national squad ranks at youth level where she earned 11 caps for the Under-20 side before going on to three World Cups with the senior side in 2011, 2015 and 2019.

Speaking about her retirement on social media, she said: "The last ten years representing New Zealand have been incredible, and so much more than I could ever have imagined. 

"With all of the ups, downs, and in-betweens, there's a few thanks worth saying as I close this chapter."
