Having assisted Canada in securing three Olympic medals, including gold at the 2020 Tokyo Summer Games, Sinclair will conclude her illustrious international career. The career, featuring 190 goals, will end with two friendlies against Australia on Friday in Victoria and Vancouver on Tuesday.

As the 40-year-old prepares for her final performance, tributes, including one from Canadian Hollywood actor Reynolds, are pouring in. He jokingly suggested that her next soccer job could be with Wrexham, the club he co-owns with fellow actor Rob McElhenney.

The Welsh team, playing in the fourth tier of the English football league, has captured the soccer spotlight and fans’ imagination worldwide, thanks to their celebrity owners and the success of the hit television series “Welcome to Wrexham.”

“Moving on in your career to Wrexham is huge for the town, the club,” Reynolds said with a smile in a video message to Sinclair played during an interview with CBC. “I believe you’re going to be the key difference-maker going forward up there in North Wales.”

Caught off guard, a wide-eyed Sinclair played along, saying, “For the right amount of money, I could go,” and added that she loved the show and Reynolds’s gin. The Canadian owns a stake in Aviation American Gin.

Reynolds, who like Sinclair is from Vancouver, also had a serious message, thanking her for everything she has done to grow the sport.

Reynolds expressed, “What I wanted to do is thank you. I wanted to thank you for inspiring me, my kids, and kids all over Canada and the world, young, old, middle-aged. You’re incredible, and you deserve all the applause that hands could give.”

“Sending you tons of love.” There will be plenty of love in the air on Tuesday, with over 40,000 people expected for Sinclair’s final match at BC Place, which will be renamed Sinclair Place for the day.
