Phoenix sign second Costa Rican


Costa Rican striker Kenny Cunningham has signed a two-year contract with Wellington Phoenix, coach Ernie Merrick has confirmed.

Cunningham joins compatriot Carlos Hernandez as Merrick looks to build an attacking mindset at the Wellington-based A-League club iphone 5 cases.

"From the outset I said I wanted an attacking player who can come in from the wing and get into goal-scoring positions," Merrick said.

"It had to be someone with pace who has a credible footballing background.

"Kenny Cunningham ticks all those boxes."

Cunningham was part of the starting line-up in a Costa Rican team that finished second behind the United States in the recent Concacaf World Cup qualifying series.

The top three from that series qualify for the 2014 finals in Brazil, with the fourth-ranked country playing off against the All Whites in November for a place in the finals Courier Service.

Cunningham, 28, first came to Merrick's attention through teammate Hernandez.

"Carlos knowing him personally was a bonus because it gives us information on his character which is very important," Merrick said.

"We want to sign players who are not only good on the field but are the right fit off it as well."

Acquiring Cunningham was a major step forward, he said, but there was still need for more depth within the squad.

"We have some really experienced players in the club but need to bring in younger players to get the age balance right mortgage loan."

The recent signing of New Zealand under-20 captain Luke Adams was a step in that direction and there are other young players trialling with the club at present.
