  • Sinclair's status in doubt


    Lost in the excitement and hyperbole of Christine's Sinclair's broken nose performance against Germany was that she suffered a serious injury.

    So serious, in fact, that it's being widely reported today that she is in danger of not playing against France. The issue isn't whether she's tough enough, but rather whether the team doctors will let her. The instinct here is to be critical of those meddling doctors, it's important to remember that the injury is to her head. Any knock to the head, rightfully -- is treated seriously now.

    She was unable to train with the team today as running was too painful.

    Clearly, her loss would be a huge blow to Canada's chances in the game. If Germany beats Nigeria, Canada would be eliminated with a loss to the French.
