Del Piero 1 – Heskey 0: Italian’s nutmeg-golazo helps Sydney to A-League opener win over Newcastle Jets
- October 11, 2013
The A-League opened with a bang today as two side with A-lister imports went head-to-head.
Alessandro Del Piero’s Sydney FC played host to Emile Heskey’s Newcastle Jets, though the former England international missed out through injury.
Alex took full advantage of Heskey’s absence by scoring the opener for his side, pulling off an implausible reverse nutmegs in the box when possession appeared lost, before sliding home a finish into the bottom corner.
Del Piero turned provider for Sydney’s second, setting up Chianese to score.
It’s just the start Del Piero’s Sydney will have wanted after a disappointing last season.
