10 Sep

The Daily Drool: Women’s World Cup Week: Christine Sinclair

30 Jun

Forward Christine is the captain of the Canadian Women’s National Team and currently plays for the Western New York Flash of the Women’s Professional Soccer league with teammate and Drool alum Marta. Christine has been a member of the Canadian senior side since 2000, making 159 appearances and scoring 116 goals! She also played for the Canadian U-19/U-20 teams in 2001-2002 and made 19 appearances scoring 27 goals. She’s Canada’s all time leading scorer. Dang, girl! She has won the Canadian Player of the Year 6 times to date: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010. That’s just a sampling of her honors. A bit of trivia: She is the niece of former North American Soccer League players Bruce and Brian Gant.

Updated: As you know, I prepare these well in advance so sometimes, I need to add a bit more. Wanna know what a total badass Christine is? She got her nose broken on Sunday in the match against Germany and refused to stop playing. Then she went on and scored. Read all about it. Cripes, Busquets and DiMaria dive if you look at them crosseyed and act like they’re having their man bits chopped off. Christine brushes off an actual broken nose and does her job. Let this be a lesson to you, gentlemen. Real women pick themselves up and get on with it. No diving and whining needed.

The amazing Marta has won the FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year five times(2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010) award, and was the inaugural winner of the FIFA Ballon d’Or (2010). She was a silver medalist at the 2004 Summer Olympics and 2008 Summer Olympics with the Brazilian Women’s National Team, which she has been a member of since 2002. She was also awarded the Golden Ball (MVP) at the 2004 FIFA U-19 Women’s World Championship. In the 2007 Women’s World Cup, she won both the Golden Ball award as the best player and the Golden Boot award as the top scorer. In January of 2011, she signed to the Western New York Flash of the Women’s Professional Soccer league. She’s been called “Pele with skirts” (which he agrees with!) and was the first woman to have her feet imprinted in the cement at Estádio do Maracanã in Brazil.
