Watch Xavi score on his debut for Qatari club Al-Sadd

Why so Sadd?

Barcelona legend Xavi scored – and set up another – on his debut proper for Al-Sadd in Qatar.

It was a fine start for one of the greatest players of the last thirty years, but two lingering doubts remain:

a) Isn’t he deserving of a greater stage whilst he is still quite clearly a class act? Isn’t this all too easy for him?

b) Entry to the game was free, and yet the ground is near empty – it doesn’t exactly bode well for the Qatar World Cup…

Anywho, we digress. It’s a smart finish, so savour Xavi – even if the locals don’t…
