POST-GAME ANALYSIS: Christine Sinclair's last bow with Canada ends in victory over Australia
Christine Sinclair has taken her final bow with the Canadian women's national team.
In front of a massive crowd of 48,000+ at BC Place – named Christine Sinclair Place in her honour for the evening – Sinclair ended a once-in-a-generation international career with a 1-0 win over Australia, earning her 331st cap and ending her tenure with a world-record 190 goals alongside 54 assists.
A headed goal by Quinn, off a second assist by Sinclair, proved the difference in this battle against the Matildas, but the goal – the game, really – played second-fiddle to the moment. It came in the 58th minute, as Sinclair's iconic no. 12 flashed across the fourth official's substitute board. As Sinclair made her way off the field, with love and admiration pouring down from every corner of the building, she shared one final hug with Sophie Schmidt, who stepped into the match – captain's armband dutifully swapped – and brought an end to an incredible footballing legend.
