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.

And, with eight minutes remaining the PSG fans were treated to what they had been dreaming of as Neymar got his name up in lights, Cavani unselfishly squaring the ball back for the Brazilian to tap home his first goal for the French giants.

This was especially true at the quarterback position , as Giants starter Eli Manning did not play a single snap in the game. McAdoo said he was going to "slowly start to integrate" numerous other injured Giants beginning with practice on Sunday.

The team didn't have an immediate update on Harper's status. "I couldn't get the ball down in the first inning". Jones reached the base first for the out, but as soon as Harper's left foot touched the bag, he went airborne.

In response, North Korea announced a detailed plan to fire ballistic missiles towards Guam, a USA territory in the Pacific. New UN sanctions condemning North Korea's rapidly developing nuclear program drew fresh ire and threats from the North.

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.
