Juventus eased to victory over a team of Indonesian Super League players in Jakarta and new boy Patrice Evra explained what it meant to him to wear the Bianconeri jersey.
The Italian champions have a new boss in Massimiliano Allegri and the ex-AC Milan man's first outings were somewhat disappointing.
The Turin giants were humbled by amateur side Lucento and then contested a 0-0 stalemate with newly promoted Cesena.
But Evra's first game since his move from Manchester United was a more positive score line, a thumping 8-1 win.
Juventus went behind early on but Fernando Llorente scored a hat-trick within the opening half hour as the Old Lady ran riot.
After the game Evra discussed his emotional start to life with Juventus.
"But this is exactly why I chose Juventus because they are a great club just like United and playing for them brings such emotions.
"I am very happy and I want to thank my teammates, the physio, everyone.
"I have had such a warm welcome and I already feel like part of the family. The result didn't matter today but it is always nice to win and to get a lot of goals.
"We are working hard and taking things seriously, but what matters is being ready for August 30."
Juventus begin their title defence away to Veronese minnows Chievo.
