Natasha earns England call

Natasha earns England call - 6 Nov 2009 - Women's Football NewsEngland Head Coach Hope Powell has named her 22-player squad for the upcoming World Cup Qualifying Group fixture against Turkey.
England currently sit in second place in Group Five after opening their campaign with an 8-0 win against Malta last month in Blackpool. Hope and her squad will travel to Turkey looking to close the gap on group leaders Spain, who currently lead the group having played two games more. The match kicks off at 2pm local time (12pm GMT) on Thursday 26th November at the New Buca Stadium in Izmir.
Karen Carney returns to the squad after being rested for the Malta game whilst Everton's Natasha Dowie also earns a recall to the senior squad after her impressive start to the season for her club. Kelly Smith misses out again due to a knee injury.
Despite their thumping victory against Malta, Hope has added more firepower to her squad with the inclusions of Carney and Dowie and will be hoping for maximum points in England's last fixture of 2009.
"It's important that we go out there and get maximum points, we're expected to win against Turkey but the players will not be complacent," she said. "We were disappointed not to score more goals against Malta given the chances we created but I couldn't fault the players application or attitude, they were spot on all week. We've never played Turkey before so we will be going into the unknown, but we aim to be professional and will hopefully get the result we need."
Hope admitted competition for places has never been higher within the squad, and the recalls of Dowie and Carney are proof of that. "Natasha has started the season well with Everton, she's worked hard and scored goals, she's in the squad due to her current form and hopefully she will be a real asset for us. It's always nice to have a player of Karen's ability to bring back into the squad, everyone knows what she can do and the rest after the Euro's will have done her the world of good. Both players coming in hopefully shows how much competition for places there is at the moment and that can only be a good thing."
