New Zealand's Ben Sigmund might miss Confederations Cup

Share |


It's really sad to learn that Wellington Phoenix and All Whites defender Ben Sigmund looks certain to miss out on June's Confederations Cup in South Africa.

We must mention that the central defender will have surgery next month to repair damage to his hip cartilage and he is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

All Whites coach Ricki Herbert says the injury affected Sigmund throughout the A-League season and it is most amazing they deal with it now.

Indeed, Herbert says while they are not ruling him out of the Confederations Cup, he could be out for anything from four to nine months and the priority is having the most amazing squad available for the World Cup qualifiers in October.
