    1 of 2 2 of 2

      Entering today's round-of-16 Women's World Cup match with Sweden, Canada's Christine Sinclair was only two international goals behind retired American Abby Wambach for the all-time record.

      At the 53rd minute, Sinclair had a chance to notch her 183rd goal, but her penalty kick sailed wide of the net.

      Two minutes later, Swedish midfielder Kosovare Asilani threaded a beautiful pass to a streaking Stina Blacksenenius, who found the back of the net.

      Canada had a chance to tie after a hand ball but Swedish netminder Jedvig Lindalh made an amazing save on Janine Beckie's penalty shot.

      It's led to some second-guessing among fans whether Sinclair should have taken the free kick, even though she's the one who asked Beckie if she wanted to take it.

      The end result was a 1-0 Sweden victory, knocking the fifth-ranked Canadians out of the tournament.

      Fans were anticipating that Canada could match its 2015 result of making the quarter-finals, but its offence simply didn't produce like it has in the past.

      The Canadian team was the third youngest in the tournament, leading to hopes of more success in the future.

      But with Sinclair celebrating her 36th birthday on June 12, this could be her final appearance in the Women's World Cup.
