Phoenix ruin Del Piero's debut

Wellington Phoenix ensured Alessandro Del Piero's A-League debut ended in disappointment with a convincing 2-0 win over Sydney FC.

Instead, it was the home team's debutants, Belgian Stein Huysegems and Wellington teenager Louis Fenton, who found themselves on the scoresheet as the Phoenix dominated at Westpac Stadium.

All the talk in Australia has centred on the arrival of Del Piero, Emile Heskey and Shinji Ono, allowing Huysegems, rising star Fenton and the Phoenix to fly under the radar.

Wellington dominated from the start and created a plethora of chances, particularly in the first half when they hit the woodwork twice and had a goal disallowed before Huysegems opened the scoring two minutes before the break.

He had already headed one wide and hit the woodwork by the time he gathered Manny Muscat's ball over the top and calmly finished past Ivan Necevski.

The Phoenix made the game safe in the 75th minute when Muscat dispossessed Del Piero and fired a pinpoint ball into the box which a diving Fenton headed home before running to celebrate with the crowd.
