RONALDO, the world's most expensive teenage footballer, scored on his Dutch league debut for PSV Eindhoven yesterday, in a 4-2 win at Arnhem.

Ronaldo, 17, a member of Brazil's World Cup-winning squad, cost pounds 4m from Cruzeiro. He hit the opening goal while another new recruit, the Belgian international, Luc Nilis, scored twice. The champions, Ajax, beat RKC Waalwijk 3-1 but Feyenoord were held 1-1 at Dordrecht and had two internationals, John de Wolf and Ulrich van Gobbel, sent off.

Another debutant to score yesterday was Bayer Leverkusen's Rudi Voller, signed last week from Marseille, in a 4-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in the German Bundesliga.

Rui Filipe, the 26-year-old Porto and Portuguese international midfielder, was killed in a car crash yesterday.
