Rachel on verge of milestone
 Women's Football News 13 Jul 2010
Rachel on verge of milestone - 13 Jul 2010 - Women's Football NewsRachel Yankey is in line to win her 100th England cap against Turkey after being named in Hope Powell's 22-player squad for the final home World Cup qualifier on Thursday 29 July.
If the Arsenal winger does take to the field at Banks's Stadium, she will become just the second women's player in history to reach this landmark figure for England. Gillian Coulthard holds the record with 119 caps.
After impressing with the Under-23 side recently there are call-ups for Dani Buet and Steph Houghton, while slight injuries to Kelly Smith and Karen Carney have rendered the American-based duo unavailable for selection. However, a broken collarbone suffered by Karen Bardsley will keep the goalkeeper out for some considerable time and Carly Telford takes her place in the squad.
An England win over Turkey would guarantee them top spot in Group Five and a subsequent play-off place with one qualifier remaining, away to Austria next month.
"We are expected to top this group so it's important that we don't make it difficult for ourselves," said Hope. "I will be looking for us to be professional and hopefully play the way I know we can.
"The last time we played Turkey, in November, on the balance of play I thought we deserved to win, although we did require three late goals to get the points. Turkey can't qualify for the World Cup now and they will no doubt be hoping to put on a good performance against a team that is expected to get to the play-offs. They have got nothing to lose and something to prove. They can use this game as a marker to see how far they have progressed, so we need to be on our guard.
"I think it's important to get a good display under our belts and if this game does get us the win we need then I'd like us to get to the play-offs with a bit of style."
