New Zealand Will Lack Wood This International Break


Having returned to fitness and scored three times in his last two appearances for Burnley having last appeared back in late December, it was expected Chris Wood would receive a call from his nation this month with the international break about to get into full swing.

However, there will be no Scotty Arfield v Chris Wood battle as Canada face New Zealand this month, as he has been left out of the squad.

It’s good news for us and the player as he can concentrate fully on using the lull period to improve his fitness even further as we go into the final games of the season, so I can only commend their national team gaffer Fritz Schmid for using it as an opportunity to look at some new players for the friendly given everyone knows what the 26 year old is capable of.
