Alessandro Del Piero was at his inspirational best with an historic four goals in Sydney FC’s 7-1 victory over Wellington Phoenix.
The former Juventus and Italy legend had never previously been able to score four in a single game before, but achieved it in the A-League.
He netted a hat-trick between the 21st and 39th minute, then added to his extraordinary tally at the 70th.
Pinturicchio converted a penalty, took the defence for a ride, then curled two trademark efforts from the edge of the box.
“I’m really happy, but 7-1 is like 1-0. It's three points and we concentrate on the next one,” shrugged Del Piero.
