Guingamp Score Barely Believable Own Goal On Neymar PSG Debut

Guingamp Score Barely Believable Own Goal On Neymar PSG Debut

Having taken a watching brief for PSG's opening-day win over Amiens last weekend, Neymar made his Ligue 1 bow at the Stade de Roudourou after his world-record €222 million (A$332.53 million) transfer from Barcelona was ratified by the French Football Federation.

He however started their second Ligue 1 fixture, alongside fellow South Americans Edinson Cavani and Angel Di Maria up front.

Cavani returned the favour for Neymar late on, selflessly teeing up the former Barca man to poke home the first of what looks likely to be many goals for Paris (82').

Twenty minutes later, Neymar was at the receiving end of Cavani's work to wrap a near-perfect debut.

Inevitably all eyes were on the Brazil star, whose first contribution was to loft an ambitious pass from deep towards the run of Di Maria which proved just too heavy. And it was roles reversed in the 82nd-minute when the Uruguayan forward squared a pass across to Neymar to give the debutant the goal he'd been searching for.

Neymar would go on to put a goal and assist to his name.

Jordan Ikoko was the major culprit for the hosts when he netted an own goal in the 52nd minutes to the disappointment of his coach.

PSG are second in the fledgling table, behind Lyon on goal difference.

But in truth, the game was all about Neymar, and, cometh the hour (or should that be "cometh the 62nd minute"), cometh the man.
