Christine Sinclair's achievement in perspective

Shout out to Christine Sinclair, Canada's soccer superstar, as she breaks the record for all time international goal-scoring.
Notching up goals 184 and 185 the other day in a 11-0 rout of St. Kitts & Nevis, she beat out American Abby Wambach to become, not only the highest scoring woman in international soccer, but the highest scoring person. Period.
For perspective, the highest scoring male is still Ali Daei of Iran (who? you say) with a paltry 104. For even more perspective, Ms. Sinclair has scored more international goals than Pele (77) and Cristiano Ronaldo (99) combined!
