Move over Abby Wambach, you've got company.

Canada veteran forward Christine Sinclair has tied Wambach's all-time international goal record, scoring her 184th goal for her country vs. Saint Kitts and Nevis on Wednesday at H-E-B Park in Edinburg, Texas, in a qualifying match for the 2020 Olympics. Sinclair, a five-time Women's World Cup and three-time Olympic veteran who plays in the NWSL for the Portland Thorns, converted a penalty kick that she earned in the seventh minute to score Canada's opener and tie the legendary USA forward and her longtime counterpart.

Whereas Wambach set her record of 184 goals in 256 games, it's taken the 36-year-old Sinclair a little bit longer, getting her outrageous total in 290 games.
