Kelly back in England squad
 Women's Football News 3 Nov 2011
 
Kelly back in England squad - 3 Nov 2011 - Women's Football NewsFollowing last week's battling 0-0 draw in Holland, Hope Powell has named her England squad to face Serbia in a UEFA Women's Euro 2013 qualifier at Doncaster Rovers' Keepmoat Stadium on Wednesday 23 November. 
 
Kelly Smith has been included in the squad for the first time since this summer's World Cup after nursing an ongoing Achilles injury. Goalkeeper Rachel Brown has also been recalled following a shoulder injury which forced her to withdraw from the squad which flew to Zwolle last month. Both players will be assessed by England's medical team in the build-up to the Serbia game.
 
"Kelly and Rachel are both doing well," said Hope of the duo's recovery. "Because we are out of season, we will give them time to further improve their fitness and will give them the best possible chance to make themselves available for selection. But we will be keeping an eye on them and see how they go."
 
England will be looking to make amends for the Serbs' added time equaliser the last time the two nations met, in Belgrade in September. A Rachel Yankey strike and an own goal from Violeta Slovic had put England 2-0 up at the break, but a Danka Podovac free kick in the 55th minute halved the deficit. Serbia then pushed for an equaliser in the soaring afternoon heat and it duly arrived in the 94th minute of play.
 
England have subsequently beaten Slovenia 4-0 at Swindon's County Ground before claiming a point in Zwolle last week, leaving them second in Group Six, two points behind Holland.
 
"We recognise it was two points dropped against Serbia last time out," admitted Hope. "We did enough on the day to win the game, but you have to give credit to Serbia for coming back at us. The players were all disappointed coming off the pitch and now we've got a chance to make amends. We have to win this game to stay in contention to top the group."
