A quick World Cup stat for the Baggies

There will be six teenagers on duty at the World Cup in South Africa, but which of those kids is the most experienced at international level?PM454291@SOCCER West Brom 1.jpg

That honour goes to West Bromwich Albion and New Zealand striker Chris Wood who has eight senior caps at the tender age of 18.

Unfortunately, I doubt that Wood will hit any of the headlines this summer as I confidentially predict that the Kiwis will be the whipping boys of the tournament.

And just for the record, the other teens on show are: Switzerland's Xherdan Shaqiri (aged 18), Ghana's Jonathan Mensah (19), Denmark's Christian Eriksen (18) and the youthful Cameroon pair Joel Matip (18) and Vincent Aboubakar (18).
