Neymar Scores On His Paris Saint-Germain Debut vs Guingamp

Not to be upstaged, Neymar had a more direct influence on PSG's second as his delightful through-ball released Cavani to coolly beat Johnsson.

Dani Alves says Neymar showed precisely why Paris Saint-Germain were so desperate to sign him after the Brazil star began to repay the world-record outlay on him with a debut strike on Sunday night.

"I knew it would be very hard to leave Barca but I am very happy to be here", he said in quotes reported by L'Equipe. "I knew that leaving Barcelona would be hard but I am very happy here".

"I knew it would be very hard to leave Barca but I am very happy to be here", the 25-year-old is quoted by L'Equipe as saying.

"I play, I'm happy and the football is the same".

"I am very happy with the [man of the match] trophy, but the main thing was to win".

Neymar felt he had gelled well with his new colleagues, after lining up on the left of a front three alongside Cavani and Angel Di Maria.

He is also the first Brazilian to score on his Ligue 1 debut for PSG since Nene against Saint-Etienne seven years ago. There are quality players, it's a great team.

Falcao scored twice before the break and once afterwards to take his tally to four goals in two games while Jemerson netted another.

"We are trying to improve all the time and we'll get to know each other even better yet".
