EDMONTON — Canadian captain Christine Sinclair added to her legacy with her stoppage-time winner against China on Saturday at the Women’s World Cup.
Her successful 92nd-minute penalty kick, which gave Canada a 1-0 victory, was the 154th goal of her 224-game international career.
It was also her eighth goal at the World Cup, elevating the 31-year-old from Burnaby, B.C., to 11th position in tournament all-time scoring.
Sinclair joins Birgit Prinz, Sun Wen, Bettina Wiegmann, Mia Hamm, Kristine Lilly and Julie Foudy in scoring at four different World Cups.
