Jess Clarke has told her England team-mates to be ready for a battle against Canada on Sunday.
The two nations face off for the second time in less than a month, following the Three Lions’ 1-0 win over John Herdman’s side in the Cyprus Cup Final
on 13 March.
England and Canada are jointly ranked seventh in the world and having each won two of the last four meetings, statistics suggest this will be a close encounter.
And Clarke believes the Canadians – Team GB’s conquerors at London 2012 – will be driven by that defeat in Cyprus.
She said: “We lost to them as Team GB in the Olympics and we beat them last month so there’s a bit of rivalry now I suppose.
“I think they’ll come here looking to prove a point so it will be a tough test.
“Canada are going to be difficult to beat, but if we can perform how we did in Cyprus then we'll do well.
Clarke added: "It will be a battle but we’re just looking to get the ball down and play, score goals and win the game.
“I think it will be a good game to watch for the fans that come along so hopefully we can get a good result.”
Tickets are priced at just £5 for adults and £2.50 for concessions (U16s and over 65s) with U8s going free when accompanied by a paying adult. A family ticket (two adults and two children) is priced at just £10
