Christine Sinclair has battled with Abby Wambach at the pinnacle of women’s soccer for years.

Now that Wambach has retired, Sinclair can start inching her way toward Wambach’s records.

On Sunday, Sinclair scored her 159th goal for Canada in the CONCACAF Olympic Qualifiers against Trinidad & Tobago.

Take a look:

That goal puts her above USA legend Mia Hamm and moves her into second place on the all-time charts. Sinclair, who is 32, still has a lot of work to do to overtake Wambach’s 184 goals, but it helps when your competition isn’t playing anymore.

We did mention this is the record for most international goals ever, men or women, right?
