Del Piero loses Sydney debut

Alessandro Del Piero has made his official debut for Sydney FC in a 2-0 away defeat to Wellington.

The former Juventus and Italy legend stepped on to the field in his first A-League game, which was played in New Zealand.

Del Piero played the entire 90 minutes and went very close to a goal with his trademark curling shot at the 77th minute, but could not avoid Sydney’s defeat.

The game was decided by a Huysegems effort and Fenton diving header in the pouring rain.
