The 36-year-old Sinclair, well aware that Hedvig saved her penalty kick at the Algarve Cup in March, said she told Beckie if she wanted the shot, it was all hers. “She said, ‘Absolutely.’ I feel bad for even asking her, but I have all the faith in the world in her, we all do,” said Sinclair, who was playing in what could be her last World Cup. The round of 16 loss was beyond disappointing for a heralded, world number five team that had lofty expectations given their run to the quarter-finals at the last World Cup on home soil. Beckie said the miss would stick with her for a long time but felt she had done all she could with the attempt. “I’m confident in my penalty, I thought I hit it really well,” she said.
