Record goalscorer Christine Sinclair announces retirement from international soccer


Christine Sinclair, one of the most decorated soccer players of all time, has announced her retirement from the international game, effective at the end of the year.

In a heartfelt letter addressed to her 16-year-old self, which was published in Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail, Sinclair wrote: “I’m writing to you 23 years, six World Cups, four Olympic Games, 327 caps and 190 international goals after it all began.”

Across her career with the Canadian national team, Sinclair’s 190 goals make her the leading goalscorer across both men’s and women’s soccer at the international level.

Sinclair said she will be ending her international career in the same way it started, “with some tears, playing the game we love on some field in Vancouver.”
