Christine Sinclair highlights Canada's 20-player roster for the CONCACAF Olympic qualifying tournament starting later this month. The Canadians have won the bronze medal at the last two Olympics. They'll vie to make the field for this summer's games in Tokyo starting on Jan. 29 in Texas against Saint Kitts and Nevis. Sinclair is one goal away from tying retired U.S. star Abby Wambach's record of 184 goals in international play. Sinclair is Canada's longtime captain and also plays for the Portland Thorns of the National Women's Soccer League.
