Christine Sinclair

Christine Sinclair (born 12 June 1983 in Burnaby, British Columbia) is a Canadian soccer forward currently playing for FC Gold Pride of Women's Professional Soccer and is a member and captain of the Canadian National Team.

In 2002, she scored seven goals for Canada in the Women's Gold Cup, tying her for the tournament lead with teammate Charmaine Hooper and USA's Tiffeny Milbrett, a fellow Portland alumni. She played for Canada in the inaugural FIFA U-19 Women's World Championship. Sinclair's 10 goals in the tournament, still a record, helped lead Canada to a surprising second-place finish, and earned her both the Golden Boot as leading scorer and Golden Ball as tournament MVP.

Sinclair chose to redshirt in 2003 in order to play for Canada at the Women's World Cup. She scored three goals in that tournament as Canada finished a better-than-expected fourth. She returned to Portland in 2004, scoring 22 goals that season, and was again named WCC Player of the Year and a consensus All-American. She also won the Hermann Trophy that season.

She earned her 100th cap on August 30, 2007 in a pre-World Cup friendly match against Japan. In December 2009, she was named female selection for the Canadian Players of the Year award for a fifth-straight season.

At the age of 27, she is already the all-time leader in goals scored for the Canadian national team with 107. On November 8, 2010 Sinclair scored the winning goal from the penalty spot in the final of the CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup, also acting as a Women's World Cup Qualifing Tournament.
