Grassi, Verdi and Ounas also on the scoresheet in pre-season opener

Fabian Ruiz stole the show with a wonder strike on his Azzurri debut as Napoli beat Gozzano 4-0 in their first friendly match of pre-season.

Carlo Ancelotti started with Marek Hamsik in the holding role and a front three of Jose Callejon, Roberto Inglese and Lorenzo Insigne for his maiden game in charge, which came five days into the team's training camp in Dimaro.

Ruiz wasted no time in introducing himself to the Napoli faithful with an unstoppable 25-yard effort that flew into the top corner midway through the first half.

Following a raft of half-time substitutions, Alberto Grassi - returning from a productive campaign on loan at SPAL last season - volleyed in acrobatically from Adam Ounas' cross shortly after the hour mark.

Another summer acquisition, Simone Verdi, made it 3-0 from the spot after Amadou Diawara had been brought down in the box, then Adam Ounas rounded off the scoring late on courtesy of a fabulous pass from Diawara.

The Azzurri's next friendly is against Carpi in Trento on Sunday 22 July.
