Manchester City striker, Gabriel Jesus will leave club alliances aside when Brazil face Chile in the World Cup Qualifier on Tuesday. The 5-time World Champions have already qualified for the tournament, meaning that there is nothing to play for, though Jesus disagrees. The striker will come up against club teammate, Claudio Bravo who he regards as a friend, but has promised to score if the opportunity arises. Chile desperately need a win at the Allianz Parque to guarantee their place at next year’s World Cup to be held in Russia though Brazil won’t do them any favours. The 20 year old forward made his betfair free bets as he has bagged five goals in 9 appearances for the Citizens this campaign
Jesus, who joined Manchester City in January has quickly become a fan favorite at The Etihad Stadium due to his work rate, finishing and ability to bring others to the game. He was speaking at the press conference ahead of the game, as Brazil are training at his former club, Palmeiras ‘ training facilities. The local media celebrated his return and it is not unsurprising that he is the player chosen to accompany Tite, the Brazil coach to the press conference. When asked about the prospect of facing Bravo, his City teammate, he had quite a lot to say about the veteran shotstopper.
He said as quoted by ESPN Brasil, “I talked to Bravo a little and said that I would score a goal past him if I have the opportunity, He’s a very good guy, a teammate, who deserves everything. I’m very much a fan of him. I’m very fond of him.”. Manchester City will also be having another representation as first choice, Ederson is set to be in goal for his debut match for the Selecao.
Jesus soccer cleat boasts the best goals per minute ratio in the history of the Premier League for players that have scored more than 10 league goals with his 11 goals coming in just 17 matches.
