Play of the day: Del Piero shows his class

The A-League's marquee man Alessandro Del Piero lived up to his superstar billing with two spectacular goals for Sydney FC against Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium last night, but it wasn't enough to stop the Roar recording a win.

Unfortunately for the Italian, the Roar found their attacking mojo, netting four times for a much-needed victory in front of 22,970 fans who got more than their money's worth from Del Piero.

Del Piero ignited the big crowd in the 42nd minute when he broke free of Brisbane's smothering defence to crack a left-foot shot past mesmerised goalkeeper Michael Theo.

It was a classy piece of work by the World Cup-winning star, who topped the effort early in the second half with a brilliant goal that cut the lead to 3-2 and again had the big crowd on their feet applauding.
