Luciano Narsingh scored twice as champions PSV Eindhoven beat Groningen 2-0 in their first home match of the new Dutch league season on Sunday.

The 24-year-old was born in Amsterdam. Narsingh's grandparents were immigrant workers from Andhra Pradesh who worked at plantations in Suriname, a former Dutch colony.

The opening goal came in the sixth minute when Narsingh rounded the goalkeeper after a through pass from new signing Maxime Lestienne.

His second was scored with 15 minutes left to secure PSV’s first league win after being held to a 2-2 draw at ADO Den Haag on Tuesday.
