Women’s World Cup 2019: Canada’s Christine Sinclair eyes record

Canada captain Christine Sinclair says it would “mean a lot” to break the all-time goalscoring record in men’s and women’s international football at the World Cup this summer.

Sinclair is three short of the record of 184 goals held by American former World Cup winner Abby Wambach.

The 35-year-old striker will be playing in her fifth tournament and has scored 181 goals in 281 senior appearances.

Canada are ranked fifth in the world and are favourites to top Group E.

“Obviously it would mean a lot,” Sinclair told BBC Sport. “I remember starting my career and thinking, ‘I have so many goals to get to’ but sort of having my eye on the record as a 16-year-old.
