Canada Soccer announced on Thursday the Women’s National Team roster for two upcoming friendlies against Wales and England, and Christine Sinclair is officially back. Canada will face off against Wales and England during the April FIFA international window, playing Wales first on Friday, April 9 at 10 a.m. PT and then England on Tuesday, April 13 at 11:15 a.m. PT.

Sinclair rejoins the roster after missing the most recent camp due to an injury and missing the SheBelieves Cup back in February. Sinclair is one of the most decorated players not just in Canadian soccer history, but in international history. She helped lead Canada to two bronze medals at the Olympics back in 2012 and 2016, the first time the country has ever medaled in back-to-back Olympics. She is also the all-time international goalscoring leader with 186, passing Abby Wambach last year.
