The two twin bastions of the A-League’s push for prominence, Alessandro Del Piero and Emile Heskey, both scored their first goals for their respective new clubs, each finding the net with impressive strikes when Sydney FC welcomed the Newcastle United Jets to their manor on Saturday.

First up came Del Piero’s maiden goal (with the Jets already 1-0 up) – a beautifully flighted free-kick from the corner of the box…

Then, 419 days since his last professional goal, came Heskey’s volley to put the Jets 2-1 up…

The game eventually finished 3-2 in Newcastle’s favour. Once again, (in case you couldn’t process it the first time) EMILE HESKEY scored.
