The face of soccer in Canada says ”it’s just time.”
With those words 40-year-old Christine Sinclair announced she will retire from international play at the end of the year.
”I can sit here and know that I’ve literally done everything I can and given all of me to this national team since I was 16,” adds the world’s all-time leading scorer with 190 goals.
She’s clearly at peace.
”I’ve started to catch myself thinking about going on vacation, spending time with my family, going to my cabin; that five-years ago would never have crossed my mind.”
Sinclair, who’s from Burnaby, does intend to pay one more season for the NWSL Portland Thorns next year.
Plus she’s expected to play four more matches for 10th-ranked Canada.
There are two friendlies later this month against No. 9 Brazil; in Montreal October 28 and Halifax on Halloween.
Canada Soccer’s expected to announce two more home games for the last FIFA international window of the year – November 27 to December 6.
Apparently one match will be in Vancouver against 11th ranked Australia.
The other one’s expected to be in the same area also against Australia.
”Playing for the national team as long as I have, we have not been able to play at home a lot. 
It will be special for me.”
