Sydney FC have crossed the ditch to record a dominant 3-nil victory against the Wellington Phoenix on Sunday.
Jacques Faty opened the scoring for the Sky Blues in the 9th minute. The Senegalese defender then followed up his goal with a great post goal celebration (well that’s what we thought! to find out the real reason for THAT goal celebration, click here). Striker Shane Smeltz found the back of the net midway through the first half with a clinical effort, but his post goal celebration was anything but. Seb Ryall closed out the scoring for the Sky Blues just before half time.
Sydney FC remain undefeated away from home this season and are now in second place, just one point behind the ladder leaders.
Jacques Faty and Shane Smeltz are equal leaders in the Beechwood “player of the year publicity for sponsor goal celebration competition”.
Sydney FC return to Allianz Stadium this Saturday 4 April to take on fellow top six side Adelaide United.
