Jordan gets England call up
 Women's Football News 7 Sep 2012
Hope Powell has named the squad she hopes will steer England Women to next summer's European Championship Finals.

A win over Croatia in Walsall later this month will secure a fifth consecutive appearance at a major tournament and the National Coach has called upon an experienced raft of players to get the job done.

Chief among them is Rachel Yankey who is poised to set a new appearance record for the team. The winger is currently level with Gillian Coultard on 119 caps but could go one further in the same venue where she earned her 100th cap, against Turkey in July 2010.

Three other centurions have also been included in the shape of Kelly Smith, who returns to the fold after missing the last two qualifiers, against Holland and Slovenia, through injury, Fara Williams and captain Casey Stoney.

There is, though, a first senior team call up for Arsenal midfielder Jordan Nobbs, a former Under-19 captain, while Everton's Toni Duggan will also be hoping to make her senior team bow at Banks's Stadium. Jess Clarke returns following injury but Ellen White misses out through suspension.

Hope said: "We can't ignore the enormity of this game. If we get three points we qualify for the Euros without having to go through the play-offs, which is what we really want to avoid.

"Although we won 6-0 in Croatia [in March], we know it is not going to be easy and the games you are expected to win never are.

"We made this qualifying campaign a lot harder for ourselves by drawing the opening game with Serbia but we got better with every match since.

"Now we have to make sure we get the job done."

The match kicks off at 5pm on Wednesday 19 September at the Banks's Stadium, Walsall FC. Tickets are priced at £5 for adults, £2.50 for Under-16s and over-65s. Under-12s are free with an accompanying adult. Ticket hotline is (01922) 651416.
