Neymar scores on PSG debut

first_imgThe Brazil star stunned the footballing world when he completed a world-record €222million move from Barcelona earlier this month.His transfer was not completed in time to feature in PSG’s 2017-18 Ligue 1 opener against Amiens last weekend – where he was presented to the Parc des Princes crowd – but he made up for lost time in style at Stade de Roudourou.With Unai Emery’s side already leading 1-0 thanks to Jordan Ikoko’s bizarre own goal, Neymar assisted Edinson Cavani with a wonderful pass before the roles were reversed eight minutes from time for the Brazilian to tap home.And Neymar’s fledgling Ligue 1 career already compares favourably to his spells in his homeland and with Barca, where it took him seven and six games respectively to net his first league goal.He is also the first Brazilian to score on his Ligue 1 debut for PSG since Nene against Saint-Etienne seven years ago.3 – Games needed to see @neymarjr’s first goal in…Brazilian Serie A: 7Liga: 6Ligue 1: ?Première. pic.twitter.com/z4lz9ETDXD— OptaJean (@OptaJean) August 13, 20172010 – Neymar is the 1st Brazilian player to score in Ligue 1 for his debut with Paris since Nenê v St Etienne on 7 August 2010.
