It was a fitting occasion for Ogilvie, scoring the opening goal in the 3-1 win over Japan, in Japan.

Ogilvie was pleased with this milestone, especially scoring a goal in his midfield role and is now hoping for a striker role come the Olympics.

"Milestones are nice cause it gives you a chance to reflect on your career so far rather than just getting caught up in the day to day training," Ogilvie said. "The boys made it pretty special with a presentation before the game and it was really nice to get a goal early in the game.

"The only way it could have been better was if I could have played in Australia in front of my family and girlfriend."

Ogilvie made his debut in 2014 in Perth against India and went on to win the gold medal at last year's Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast and bronze in the World Cup in India.
