Football star Christine Sinclair is the Canadian Women's Top Player for the 14th time

Christine Sinclair has been voted for the Canadian Women's Football Player of the Year for the 14th time.

The 35-year-old from Burnaby, B.C., scored the winning goal in the match, qualifying Canada for next year's Women's World Cup in France. And she led Canada in scoring for the fifth time in 19 years, with eight goals and two assists in 12 international matches.

Sinclair has scored 177 goals in 274 appearances for Canada.

On the club front she played 2,160 minutes for Portland Thorns when they finished second in NWSL. She scored nine goals and ended up tied to third in the league with six assists as Thorns reached the league championship.

The award was decided by a poll of Canadian media and coaches. Men's winner will be announced Wednesday.
