Errors in this reportEdit

As of Oct. 28, 2013, Christine Sinclair has scored 146 goals in 198 matches. This entire document needs to be proofed / compared to the official list of matches per Also, is soccer (unlike hockey), there is no result after a draw (ie - on 12 April 2008, the "CAN 1:1 a.e.t USA / USA wins 6-5 on kicks" result goes into the records books as a draw (neither team got the "W"). Finally, all official soccer results should be listed W-D-L — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:50, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

  • None of those were included in the list except for July 23, 2007 match which CanadaSoccer list on its website as a match played by Canada Women's team. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:52, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
It is not in doubt that it was Canada's senior team. It's because they played a youth team, that it's not a cap. Lauren Cheney who scored for the USA is also not credited with a senior cap or goal despite it being a senior competition. It's all due to senior team vs. youth team. --Nonc01 (talk) 17:06, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

Appearance adjustment Dec/2013Edit

When I noticed Sinclair's International goal table at odds with Soccer Canada by the amount of one (1) appearance, I sided with Soccer Canada for a few edits. But now the table is in excellent shape (well done editors) and each game incredibly sourced with Soccer Canada's own game sheets, so I came to expect a bookkeeping error by Soccer Canada, however...

I finally had a chance to go through the footnotes, and near the end of my referencing there was appearance #99 on 23 July 2007 against a USA development team. This shouldn't be counted as a senior cap and I believe this is our lone object of disparity. CSA did not release a team sheet for this game either. --Nonc01 (talk) 13:58, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

  • On July 23, 2007 Sinclair played the USA under-20 team in the semi-final of the Pan-Am games. If this match is excluded from her cap; then the goal scored by Kara Lang should also be excluded. Therefore, Kara Lang has 92 caps by the same standard as applied to Sinclair and without the goal scored in the same match, Lang scored 34 goals and not 35 goals as listed on - Harvardton (talk) 01:29, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
I don't follow, I think maybe you're getting mixed up. Remember, my edit reflects CSA not counting this as a cap, so why would they have attributed one to Lang for the same game? --Nonc01 (talk) 16:58, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
Please see Talk: Kara Lang. There is nothing to it, Kara Lang either have 93 caps and 35 goals, or 92 caps and 34 goals. This discrepancy arise from counting the goal scored on July 23, 2007 and not counting the match as a cap. On the match report |2007-07-23, no Canada player appear in the team sheet, but Kara Lang appears on the score-sheet; hence the difference. Harvardton (talk) 19:38, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

Featured list prepEdit

Walter Görlitz – I am working with The Rambling Man on prepping this article as a featured list using the format of other featured lists such as List of international goals scored by Landon Donovan, List of international goals scored by Abby Wambach, List of international goals scored by Lionel Messi (current canditate) and others. Are you interested in helping clean up the table of international goals to reflect the format of the others? Hmlarson (talk) 04:39, 6 January 2018 (UTC)

The Rambling Man – PS. I made some headway tonight on starting to expand the lead and cleaning up Statistics section to match others. I see core remaining tasks as cleaning up the main table (per inquiry to Walter Görlitz), checking references, checking alt tags, links and finishing up the lead. Her Canada bio has all of the caps, goals conveniently listed. Hmlarson (talk) 04:47, 6 January 2018 (UTC)Hmlarson (talk) 06:13, 6 January 2018 (UTC)
If there's some easy reformatting, I might be able to use my editing skills there, but it seems fairly well under control. Walter Görlitz (talk) 07:17, 6 January 2018 (UTC)
