Kelly Smith shocked by US league cancellation

England striker Kelly Smith expresses her disbelief that the 2012 Women's Professional Soccer League in the United States has been cancelled  .

The news affects five British players, who are now without a club, including Smith who is contracted to Boston.

Smith says 2012 will be a "big year" for women's football with Euro 2013 qualification and the Olympics, and playing "regular" football will be key for those looking for selection for England and GB squads.
