Powell makes changes for Hungary
Lianne Sanderson
Arsenal's Lianne Sanderson has been in fine form recently
England Women coach Hope Powell has made two changes to her squad for the World Cup qualifier against Hungary.

Lianne Sanderson of Arsenal, player of the match in the 5-0 FA Cup final win over Leeds, and Sunderland's Jill Scott have both been called up.

Kelly Smith and Katie Chapman are rested while exams will rule out Eniola Aluko for the second game in a row.

England, who top Group Five, play Hungary at 1905 BST at Southampton's St Mary's stadium on 11 May.

Speaking on the FA's official website, Powell said: "Bringing Lianne and Jill into the squad is just reward for not only their form this season, but their progress at both club and international level over the last couple of seasons.

"Lianne's performance against Leeds was indicative of her talent.

"Jill is also another one for the future, and shows some real similarities in her game to Steven Gerrard, both being box-to-box players who can screen the defence, as well as scoring goals."

England Squad:

R Brown (Everton), S Chamberlain (Bristol Academy), L Bassett (Birmingham), L Johnson (Everton), M Phillip (Arsenal), C Stoney (Charlton Athletic), R Unitt (Everton), F White (Arsenal), A Asante (Arsenal), J Scott (Sunderland), V Exley (Doncaster Rovers Belles), F Williams (Everton), J Potter (Charlton Athletic), A Scott (Arsenal), A Barr (Charlton), K Carney (Birmingham), J Handley (Everton), L Sanderson (Arsenal), S Smith (Leeds), R Yankey (Arsenal)
