On Sunday 26 August 2007 Wellington Phoenix played their first ever A-League match, in front of 14,421 at Westpac Stadium.
Steven Old became the first Phoenix player in history to pick up a yellow card after eight minutes before Victory captain Kevin Muscat's penalty just evaded the outstretched hand of Glen Moss as the Nix conceded in the 19th minute.
Melbourne sharp-shooter Danny Allsopp doubled the visitor's lead in the 60th minute, but it didn't last long. Brazilian import and instant fan-favourite Daniel fired home Wellington's first ever goal, before All Whites and Nix legend Shane Smeltz doubled the dose just five minutes later.
2-2 it finished that day. It was a spirited start, and with the sun out a cracking day for all in the stands!
