[ITALY/VIDEO] Pato Alexandre
, AC Milan's 18-year-old Brazilian, lived up
to his billing as he scored in his Italian Serie A debut and led Milan to a 5-2 victory over Napoli Sunday for its first win at home of the league season.
For weeks, the Italian
media have been salivating about the new Milan trio -- Ka-Pa-Ro -- after Brazilians Kaka
, Pato and Ronaldo
-- and they
combined for four of the five goals.
In its previous seven league matches - five draws and two defeats - Milan managed just three goals, they matched that mark just 30 seconds into
the second half against Napoli.
With Milan short on strikers, Coach Carlo Ancelotti
gave Pato a start in his first game eligible for Milan, and
Ronaldo was only playing his second game of the season.
Ronaldo scored after the first quarter of an hour and added a second goal at the start of the second half. Pato was twice denied
by Napoli keeper Gennaro Iezzo
in the first half -- Clarence Seedorf
scored Milan's second goal off a rebound on
Iezzo's second stop -- before finally beating Iezzo on a breakaway in the 74th minute.
Minutes earlier, Kaka scored from the edge of the box for his first Serie A goal since
