England's Smith won't kiss boots again

WUHAN, China -- England forward Kelly Smith will not be kissing her soccer boots if she scores again at the Women's World Cup.

Smith scored both goals in England's opening 2-2 draw with Japan, and after each she took a boot off to give it a kiss.

"She won't be doing that again," England coach Hope Powell said when asked if Smith would kiss her boot if she scored against Germany in a Group A match on Friday.

She said as England's top goal-scoring threat, Smith was already attracting enough attention from other teams.

Smith said the kissing idea came to her when she was trying to prepare herself mentally for the game with Japan, which is expected to play England for second place in the group after Germany.

German coach Silvia Neid said the goal-scoring celebration was against the rules.

"If I had been the referee I would have shown her a yellow card and then the red card," she said.
