Christine Sinclair is ready to build on her success.


Christine Sinclair has interconnected hopes for soccer in North America. The most imminent would be her WPS opener with her team FC Gold Pride taking on Boston Breakers on April 5th. Perhaps the most personal would be her chance to score her 100th goal in Canada’s friendly against Japan come May 25th. Sinclair holds hopes for the distant future in what Women’s Pro Soccer can do for aspiring players and the Canadian soccer. “I think this league needs to survive just so young players out there in college, and younger than that, know that there’s somewhere to play if you don’t happen to make a national team,” she said Friday during a conference call. “For some people it’s hard to move overseas to continue your soccer career. So to have a league here in the U.S. – and hopefully it can branch out to Canada soon – it’s hugely important.” Read more from The Canadian Press
