The Aussie Telegraph had billed Heskey’s Jets V Del Piero’s Syndey, a bit preposterously for a league that’s only 8 years old, as ‘one for the ages’.
The sentiment was right though, as the A-League has been gradually building up to attracting (ex) star players for some time now, and in Del Piero and Heskey it looks to have found a marquee pair with the desire to still deliver.
Both delivered in some style in Saturday’s face-off as Del Piero scored a free-kick golazo, and Heskey grabbed a good striker’s goal as Newcastle Jets ran out 3-2 winners.
Watch both goals below.
