Toulouse know why he cost £200 million

Football is not the leading sporting interest in Toulouse, where rugby reigns supreme, but the signing of Brazilian footballer Neymar by Paris St Germain from Barcelona for 220 million euros excited all French media and raised all the usual "is he worth it" questions.
Imagine then that Toulouse football club (TFC) threatened to spoil the hype by leading 1-0 at half-time last night (Sunday). Then Neymar scored two, made two "assists" (goal scoring passes) and won a penalty in the second half.  6-2 was the final score.
