Kelly Smith, Claire Rafferty and Carly Telford have withdrawn from the England Women’s squad that will face Canada on Sunday.
Hope Powell’s side will take on the Olympic bronze medallists at Rotherham United’s New York Stadium in a repeat of last month’s Cyprus Cup Final, which the Three Lions won 1-0.
Smith injured her fibula during Arsenal’s Champions League quarter final first leg win over Torres last month.
Rafferty is still returning to full fitness following a long-standing knee injury, while her Chelsea team-mate Telford recently sustained an elbow ligament injury.
The remaining 23 players met up at St. George’s Park on Wednesday morning.
Tickets are priced 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.
