Manchester City new boy Rolando Bianchi marked his debut with a goal as the Blues beat Swedish side Orgryte 4-1 in a friendly tonight.

The Italian, signed from Reggina for a reported £8.8million, opened the scoring from close range after a one-two with striker partner Emile Mpenza.

Orgryte equalised through Boyd Mwila on 37 minutes but Bernardo Corradi restored City´s lead in the second half after a shot from youngster Shaleum Logan hit the post. Greek striker Georgios Samaras headed in a third from a Darius Vassell cross before Logan rounded off the scoring in the 64th minute.
