Neymar marked his eagerly awaited Paris Saint-Germain debut with a goal as he helped the Ligue 1 side beat Guingamp 3-0.

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 on Sunday after his world-record €222million transfer from Barcelona was ratified by the French Football Federation in the week.

Cavani returned the favour with a ideal cut-back, and Neymar poked the ball home eight minutes from time.

Cavani earlier doubled PSG's lead after Jordan Ikoko's comical own goal, guiding his pass beyond the Guingamp goalkeeper Karl-Johan Johnsson. Following a Neymar pass which was cut out by a Guingamp defender, the ball came to Ikoko standing two metres from the penalty spot.

With Di Maria, Julian Draxler, Lucas Moura and Javier Pastore in their squad, PSG already have many options out wide in the final third, but Neymar brings an extra level of attacking verve.

Edinson Cavani scored the second goal for PSG in the 62nd minutes after being superbly set up by Neymar and he wasted no time to fired in far corner of the net.
