Christine Sinclair Aims to Break World Cup Record and End Career on a High

Christine Sinclair, the captain of Canada’s women’s national football team, is on the verge of making history at the upcoming FIFA Women’s World Cup, which will be held in Australia and New Zealand in 2023. Sinclair, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest female footballers of all time, is just one goal away from surpassing the current record for most international goals in history, which is held by Abby Wambach of the United States, with 184 goals.

If Sinclair, who has scored 186 goals in 305 appearances for Canada since her debut in 2000, manages to break the record during the World Cup, she will cement her place as a legend of the sport and join an elite club of players who have achieved such a feat, including Cristiano Ronaldo and Marta, who hold the men’s and women’s records for most goals in World Cup history, respectively.

However, for Sinclair, who is now 38 years old and has represented Canada in four previous World Cups, the record is not the only thing on her mind. She is also determined to lead her team to a historic triumph and win the World Cup for the first time in Canada’s history. Canada’s best performance in the tournament was in 2003, when they finished fourth, and since then, they have been knocked out in the quarterfinals or earlier in every edition.

In a recent interview with FIFA.com, Sinclair spoke about her motivation and her goals for the World Cup, saying: “I think I have a lot left in the tank, and I think this team has a lot left in the tank. We’ve been building towards this tournament for a long time, and we’re excited to finally get there and show what we can do. It’s not about me breaking the record, it’s about us winning the tournament. That’s the ultimate goal.”
