Round 2: Sydney shine?

Gold Coast stomped their rich footprint all over the A-League with a 5-0 home win, Wellington beat Perth in front of a healthy 10,000 crowd, Melbourne came back from 3-1 to draw 3-3 with Brisbane and the F3 Derby saw the Jets draw 1-1 with the Mariners.

Sydney had a tough test against a fit, tactically sound Adelaide United.

Despite some errors from Karol Kisel and Terry McFlynn in midfield throughout the game Sydney remained strong and won the game through substitute's Mark Bridge wonderful link play with Alex Brosque.

Korean import full-back Byun Sung-Hwan impressed again, quickly becoming a crowd favourite, but once again it was Kofi Danning who took the eye.

Up against the uncompromising Scott Jamison Danning was tested early, but the longer the game went the young star just got better and better. Another test passed for the young star.

Wonderful stuff.

And with Mark Bridge, Mitchell Prentice, Adam Casey, Brendan Gan, Rhyan Grant, Stuart Musialik among those fighting for a starting birth, seems like Sydney might have a bit more fight in them this season. Early days.

It seems Kofi is making a career for himself.
Wonder if his junior club has received their training and development monies provided for by the FFA?.

It looks as Kofi is making his way in the professional world. Good for him.

Just wondering whether or not his junior club has received their training and development fees catered for by the FFA.
