AFC Champions League: High profile signing Oscar scores on debut for Portsmen

SIPG hosted Thai side Sukhothai in an AFC Champions League play-off to reach the group stages. Fans flocked to the Shanghai stadium for a first look at their big money man Oscar, who arrived from Chelsea for 60 million pounds in January, and along with fellow Brazilians, Elkeson and Hulk, the 25-year-old wouldn't disappoint in front of his new home fans.

This was also the first competitive game for new coach Andre Villas Boas since taking charge of the club in November. The Thai side reached this stage after being picked out in a lottery after the Thai F.A. cup was cancelled due to the death of the country's king. 

But it would be SIPG reining supreme on this occasion. 34 minutes in Oscar gets on the end of a pass from Odil Ahedov to slot home and open his account for the team. Nice finish from the Brazil international to make it one-nil.

Compatriot Elkeson doubles their lead with a cheeky flick just before the half time whistle. The former Guangzhou Evergrande forward quick to react on this occasion following Wu Lei's air kick.

The CSL side add a third in comical circumstances 13 minutes after the break when visiting defender Kiattisak Toopkhuntod diverts Elkeson's shot into the net.

SIPG run out three-nil winners and advance to compete with Asia's best.
