Striker ready for play-off action

Burnley's record signing Chris Wood says he will not let Argentina's superstars derail his dreams of going to the World Cup.

The New Zealand international, who has netted three times for the Clarets since his move from Leeds in the summer, is waiting to see who the All Whites will get in a play off.

The likelihood is that New Zealand will have to play Argentina in the play offs and the likes of Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Paulo Dybala or Angel Di Maria, but Wood is ready.

Wood said: "I don’t really mind who we get. At the end of the day, if they are fifth, they are there for a reason.

"Yes they should be up there with Brazil in the top two but if they are fifth, they are there for a reason they are obviously not clicking or gelling as they need and it does give us an opportunity to upstage them or turn them over."
