Alessandro del Piero was on the losing side on his Sydney FC debut.

Former Italy international Alessandro del Piero was on the losing team as he made his debut in Australia's A-League.

Sydney FC lost 2-0 to the league's only New Zealand-based team, Wellington Phoenix, on the opening weekend of the season.

Del Piero played for the full 90 minutes in front of a crowd of just over 12,000 fans.

The 37-year-old joined Sydney last month, having left Juventus as a free agent after a 19-year spell at the club.
