Key duo return for England
 Women's Football England International News - 30 Mar 2018
Steph Houghton and Jordan Nobbs have given Phil Neville a boost with their recall to the England squad for the resumption of FIFA Women's World Cup qualifying next week.
Houghton and Nobbs are back in the fold after each missed the SheBelieves Cup in the United States earlier this month through injury. Reading's Mary Earps and Arsenal's Beth Mead also return to the squad.
England's best ever performance at the SheBelieves Cup has seen them move up to second in the world - just behind USA, who narrowly beat them 1-0 in the final game, but ahead of UEFA rivals Germany.
Wales top qualifying Group 1 with ten points from four games, a point ahead of England having played a game more. The match will be followed by a trip to meet Bosnia & Herzegovina on Tuesday 10 April and two positive results would mean a big step towards qualifying for the 2019 finals in France.
Speaking for the first time since the US trip, Neville said: "I am really pleased for the players that their hard work has been recognised in the new rankings.
"To get to second in the world is a wonderful achievement, but if we want to take the last - and biggest - step to become No1 then we have to deliver in matches like the two we have coming up. Because of what's at stake, they are more important than the SheBelieves Cup and we will prepare accordingly.
"Wales will be my first competitive match in charge and it will be an incredible honour to walk out at a packed Premier League ground with this group of players. I have been so impressed with how they have reacted to what I and the coaches have asked of them in everything we do on and off the field.
"In particular, the young players have really taken their chance to shine. We are delighted to have Steph and Jordan back, but we also want to keep giving opportunities to the next generation coming through.
"I hope as many people as possible come out to support them - especially with the game coming in the middle of the Easter school holidays."
