Sinclair returning to pitch after suspension

  • Print

CANADIAN captain Christine Sinclair says she hopes she's still fit as she prepares for her return to team action Friday at an international soccer match in Cyprus.

It was said with a laugh, now that she has completed her four-game suspension for a post-match incident after a semifinal loss to the United States at the London Olympics.

"It's obviously exciting to get back in," she said Thursday from the Cypriot capital Nicosia, where Canada is competing in the Cyprus Women's Cup. "It's been a while since I've played a full 90-minute international game. The last time I suited up we won a bronze medal."

Sinclair hasn't played since Canada's third-place showing at the Olympics. She was highly critical of the refereeing in a 4-3 extra-time semifinal loss to the U.S., and once the tournament was over she was suspended by FIFA for "displaying unsporting behaviour towards match officials."
