Sigmund sees red for nasty stamp

by Back Page Football

New Zealand defender Ben Sigmund let his frustrations get the better of him late on in his side’s 2-0 defeat to UAE in the OSN Cup final.

The 32 year old, who plays his club football with Wellington Phoenix in the A-League, lost his composure in a desperate attempt to gain possession of the ball.

Sigmund later apologised according to All Whites coach Ricki Herbert.
