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.
