Christine Sinclair, the record-holder for the most international goals, has declared her retirement from the Canada women’s national team. However, she intends to continue playing for the Portland Thorns in the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) in the upcoming season.

Christine Sinclair, the world’s leading international goal scorer, has officially announced her retirement from the Canada women’s national team. The 40-year-old forward concludes her illustrious international career with 190 goals in 327 appearances, an Olympic gold medal, and participation in six World Cups.

Sinclair’s departure will be marked with a pair of sendoff games during the FIFA international window from November 27 to December 5, with additional matches yet to be announced by Canada Soccer.

After deciding not to participate in the upcoming Paris Olympics and aiming to make a better exit than her last World Cup, Sinclair helped secure a Paris Olympic berth for Canada. Her decision also allows her to have an offseason, enjoy FIFA windows as breaks, spend more time with her family, and go on vacations, which she hasn’t had the opportunity to do since her college days.

Christine Sinclair broke Abby Wambach’s all-time international scoring record of 184 goals in 2020 and subsequently led Canada to their first Olympic gold in Tokyo, defeating Sweden in a thrilling final.

Sinclair, known for her remarkable career achievements, her advocacy for equal pay and treatment, and her prominent role as a vocal leader in the Canada women’s team, will be remembered as one of Canada’s greatest athletes.

Although Sinclair remains part of the Canada squad for upcoming friendlies against Brazil, her legacy as an international football icon is now etched in history.
