Canada’s national women’s team has another injury scare to contend with ahead of the World Cup. Goalkeeper Stephanie Labbe injured her knee Sunday in a Swedish league match. Labbe, who plays for Pitea IF, collided with a Kristianstad striker in the 21st minute. According to the Norrbottens Kuriren, Labbe tried to continue, but had to be subbed off five minutes after the incident. Labbe confirmed through her Twitter account that she will be seeing a doctor Monday to determine the extent of the injury. “Off to bed… praying my knee magically feels better tomorrow… if not fingers crossed for my doc appt that all is ok #positivethinking.” Women’s national team coach Carolina Morace wants to have her players all ready for full training by May 10. Those who aren’t ready won’t be included in the World Cup squad. Germany 2011 kicks off June 26. Midfielder Josee Belanger has already ruled herself out because of ankle injury, and two-time W-League MVP Kelly Parker is only being used as a sub by the Western New York Flash of WPS as she recovers from a foot injury.
