Tasnim – SYDNEY, Iran international Reza Ghoochannejhad opened his account for the Sydney FC, scoring his first goal in the match against Adelaide United on Friday night in A-League.
‘Gucci’ kept the race for the premiership alive after reducing Perth Glory’s lead at the top of the table to five points with a hard-fought 2-0 win over Adelaide United.
The Iran star registered his first goal for the Sky Blues in the 15th minute and in some style.
Receiving the ball near the half-way line, Ghoochannejhad sparked a fluid team attack.
Exchanges with Anthony Caceres and Rhyan Grant split open Adelaide’s defense before Ghoochannejhad’s clever dummy opened more space. A quick pass from Adam Le Fondre put “Gucci” through on goal and he slotted the ball past Izzo.
Cameron Devlin also scored his first goal for Sydney FC in the injury time.
