Christine Sinclair back for Canada ahead of Brazil friendlies
After missing out on the October camp through injury, the Canadian captain will be available to play in next month's games in Brazil.
The Canadian women's team will have iconic captain Christine Sinclair back in the lineup when it faces Brazil in a pair of important international friendlies next month.
Coach Bev Priestman on Monday announced her 25-player squad which included Sinclair, who sat out the team's pair of wins against Argentina and Morocco in friendlies earlier this month due to injury. Also missing from that Canadian camp due to injuries or personal issues were centre back Vanessa Gilles, fullbacks Ashley Lawrence, Jayde Riviere and Gabrielle Carle, and forward Deanne Rose.
The Olympic champions will face Brazil on Nov. 11 (in Santos) and Nov. 15 (in São Paulo). Canada is ranked No. 7 in the world at the moment, just two spots above Brazil who have also qualified for next year's FIFA World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
