Christine Sinclair called up one last time by Canada

It’s the last dance for Christine Sinclair. 

Canadian women’s team coach Bev Priestman on Thursday announced her 25-player roster for an upcoming pair of friendlies vs. Australia, and included in her list is Sinclair who previously announced her plans to retire from international soccer at the end of this year. 

Canada will play Australia on Dec. 1 at Starlight Stadium in Langford, B.C. and Vancouver’s BC Place on Dec. 5.  

Sinclair, a 40-year-old from Burnaby, B.C., has competed in six World Cups and four Olympics for Canada, and she is also the all-time top scorer in international soccer, for both men and women, with 190 goals in 329 games. She plans to play one more year for her pro club, the Portland Thorns of the NWSL, before hanging up her cleats for good.
