The Wellington Phoenix are having a fantastic time in the A-League Men season! They just won against Melbourne City, making it three wins and two draws in the season. Bozhidar Kraev, a midfielder from Bulgaria, scored the only goal with a tap-in during the second half.
Here’s how it happened: In the 48th minute, Wellington’s Mohamed Al-Taay made an incredible pass to David Ball, who then crossed the ball perfectly to Kraev, and he scored from really close to the goal. It was teamwork at its best!
Even though Melbourne City tried to catch up, they faced some tough moments. Socceroos striker Jamie Maclaren had a penalty kick, but the Phoenix’s goalkeeper, Alex Paulsen, made a spectacular save. This was Paulsen’s second great save of the game.
The first half was full of action, with chances on both sides, but no goals. Wellington’s Kosta Barbarouses had some exciting attempts, but the real hero was Paulsen, who made crucial saves.
In the end, the Phoenix secured their lead, and the fans are over the moon! With three wins and two draws, they are showing everyone that they mean business in the A-League Men season. Keep an eye on the Phoenix — they’re on fire! 🔥
