Description: Christine Sinclair OC is a Canadian international soccer player and vice-captain of the Portland Thorns FC of the National Women's Soccer League. She previously played for FC Gold Pride, a team from Canada, and Western New York Flash. She was also an assistant coach at the now-defunct Longitude Soccer Club in Vitoria. Before moving to the States, she was a trainee with the Canadian National Team. Her playing career spanned fourteen years, the first eight of which were spent in Europe.
During her time in Europe, she became known as one of the most respected coaches in the league, due to her time as an assistant coach for the German national team. She coached that team for two seasons before moving back to Canada and playing professionally for the fourth club in four years. Since then, she has coached a variety of different women's teams, including the Portland Thorns FC.
As a player, Sinclair was known for her strength and her aerial capabilities, which earned her the name “The Butterfly.” Sinclair played on both the defensive and attacking sides for her team, but was always a vital part of the attack. She was named the MLS Player of the Month twice and in 2021 was even chosen to play on the Canadian World Cup team that competed in Germany. When the tournament was over, she was not picked for the final list, but was still able to make an appearance in the playoff matches, where the Canadians went on to defeat England in the semis and eventual victory over Italy in the final. All of this brought her much recognition in her home country of Canada.
As a coach, Sinclair has developed a style of coaching that utilizes a great deal of attacking tactics but also relies on creating plenty of opportunities for her team to defend and protect their goal. Her team is very successful when they are focused and confident that they will win the game. Because they have such a diverse range of players, Sinclair can rotate players in and out of the lineup quite effectively and can switch up the formation of the team quite easily as well.
In addition to her on field work, Sinclair has also been involved with charity work, being involved with many different soccer leagues and helping to promote the sport in Canada. She was also the face of the Women's National Team Program during the latter years of the 2021's. At the time, it seemed like it would be a good fit, as the team was struggling financially. However, Sinclair's efforts and visibility towards the program were viewed negatively by Canadian soccer officials, who felt that her presence did not help the sport in any way. She was eventually dropped from the team, but she has remained active in various other ways.
Today, Sinclair is the general manager of the Portland Thorns FC. While there are still some members of the team that are involved with the Women's National Team Program, Sinclair is the official head of the team. She is also an integral part of the coaching staff for the team. Her level of play and commitment to the sport is very good, and she enjoys the challenges of being a professional women's soccer player. She has also expressed an interest in coaching in the future.
