ADELAIDE - Striker Jeronimo Neumann scored twice as Adelaide United's foreign brigade sparked a 5-1 torching of Wellington Phoenix in Thursday night's A-League fixture.
The Reds scored two goals in a six-minute span in the first half, with Argentine Jeronimo's long-range bullet followed by a near tap-in for Spaniard Sergio Cirio.
Adelaide's Portuguese winger Fabio Ferreira scored in the second stanza with a sweet strike before he fed Jeronimo his second goal.
Wellington's Kenny Cunningham pegged one back before Adelaide's Kenyan-born winger Awer Mabil netted in injury time.
Adelaide climbed to third on the ladder, though Melbourne Victory can re-take that spot with a win or draw in Saturday night's derby against Melbourne Heart.
The Reds' form is compelling as they just twice in their past dozen matches.
