Christine Sinclair breaks Abby Wambach's record.

The 2020 Concacaf Women’s Olympic Qualifying Championship is underway in Texas (the semifinals and finals will be played in California), and a match Wednesday made some international history. Veteran Canadian striker Christine Sinclair scored twice in Canada’s match against St. Kitts and Nevis (which Canada won 11-0), her 184th and 185th international goals. The first one tied her with famed former American striker Abby Wambach for the most goals ever scored in international soccer (men’s or women’s), while the second gave her sole possession of that mark. Here are those goals, with the first coming from a seventh-minute penalty and the second coming from open play in the 23rd minute:

That’s quite the mark for Sinclair, and it has her at the top of a very impressive list:

The 36-year-old Sinclair made her debut for the Canadian senior team 20 years ago at the 2000 Algarve Cup, and she made an impact right away, leading that tournament with three goals. Since then, she’s led the Canadian team to heights the program had never seen, including a fourth-place finish at the 2003 FIFA Women’s World Cup and third-place finishes at the 2012 London Olympics and the 2016 Rio Olympics, and she’s put up incredible totals along the way, scoring 10 or more international goals in nine different seasons (including one in 2002 where she only received 10 caps but scored 11 times).

Sinclair has also found success in the NCAA with the Portland Pilots (110 goals and 32 assists in 94 games) and in women’s professional soccer. At the professional level, she’s shone with FC Gold Pride and the Western New York Flash of WPS (26 goals across 45 combined games with those teams) and then the Portland Thorns of the NWSL (52 goals across 136 regular season and playoff appearances). And she received a lot of tributes after hitting this mark, including one from Wambach:

Canada Soccer also put out quite the montage of many of Sinclair’s international goals over the years:

Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau paid tribute to Sinclair as well:

As did many others:

Congrats to Sinclair on a remarkable accomplishment, and one that will be tough to top.
