Mark Ochieng is a Kenyan-Australian professional footballer who last played as a right winger or right back for Adelaide United in the A-League.[3] He made his senior professional debut for Adelaide United FC in the 2014 FFA Cup in a match against Wellington Phoenix FC at the Marden Sports Complex on 5 August 2014.[4] Adelaide won the match 1–0 in regulation time.

Early life[edit]

Ochieng's father played international football for Kenya. After growing up in Nairobi, the family moved to Plympton, South Australia when Ochieng was nine, where his father worked as an electrician.[5]

Club career[edit]

Adelaide United[edit]

In a crucial match[when?] against Melbourne City, in the 87th minute, Ochieng scored a magnificent top corner strike to help Adelaide United win the match. That goal helped Adelaide United win for just the second time that season.[citation needed]

Ochieng was released by Adelaide United in May 2018.[6]
