Phoenix's new striker delivers the goals

10:01 pm on 9 January 2010

New striker Eugene Dadi had an outstanding debut for the Wellington Phoenix in their 3-1 A-League victory against Brisbane Roar on Saturday night.

Dadi became an instant hit with the Phoenix fans at Wellington's Westpac Stadium with a spectacular bicycle kick in the 56th minute. A few minutes later he followed it up with his side's third goal.

The Ivory Coast international joined the Wellington side only this week after being released by Perth Glory.

A Tim Brown header gave the Phoenix a 1-0 half-time lead.

Sergio van Dijk scored a late consolation goal for the Roar.
