Xavi has long been famous as something of an assist king, and it took the Barcelona legend just 12 minutes of his Al Sadd debut to register his first with his new club.

The midfielder's in-swinging free-kick was headed home by South Korean defender Lee Jung-soo to give Al Sadd an early lead in their Qatar Premier League tie with Al Mesaimeer.

Xavi joined the Qatari club in the summer after 17 hugely successful seasons with Barcelona, during which he won a record 25 titles.
