Brazilian Bobo cements place in the history books

Sydney FC have extended their lead on top of the A-League ladder and also their unbeaten streak against Melbourne Victory with a come-from-behind 3-1 win at AAMI Park. The Sky Blues now lead second place Newcastle Jets by nine points and haven’t lost to their Big Blue rivals since Australia Day 2016. But that wasn’t the story of the night. That belonged to Brazilian striker Bobo, who not only scored both goals created a little bit of club history in the process.
