​Huddersfield, West Ham target Wood laments missed chances in NZ Confederations Cup loss

Leeds striker Chris Wood believes he should of lead New Zealand to victory in their 2-1 loss to Mexico on Wednesday.

The tall forward opened the scoring for the All-Whites in the first half, but Mexico clawed their way back to claim all three points.

"It's disappointing. We should have got a lot more from that game," Wood said.

"I knew what this team was capable of, and that is what it is capable of, putting in against these great sides.

"We had our chances, we needed to take them and be more clinical and it would have been a different outcome

"On another day I would have had three. I am disappointed with not putting them away, especially the first one. The keeper has made a good save but I feel I should have done better but that's football.

The 25-year old scored 30 goals for Leeds last season, which has lead to interest from Premier League clubs, including Huddersfield and West Ham.
