Video: Manchester City-Bound Gabriel Jesus Scores a Double for Brazil vs Honduras

Video: Manchester City-Bound Gabriel Jesus Scores a Double for Brazil vs Honduras

Pep Guardiola forked out £27m to sign Gabriel Jesus from Palmeiras this summer and the youngster has already  given Manchester City fans a taste of what is to come, with two goals against Honduras at the Olympics.

The 19-year-old is part of a much-fancied Brazil team, with the host’s squad including the likes of Gabriel Barbosa and Neymar.

However City’s newest recruit is refusing to be out-shined as he’s grabbed himself a brace in the first 45 minutes with Brazil leading 3-0.

Jesus’ first goal was created through to his impeccable timing and movement off the ball, which left the Honduras defence chasing his shadow as he dinked the ball beyond the on-rushing goalkeeper:

Jesus doubled his tally minutes later, having used his speed to turn the last defender, which left him one-on-one with the goalkeeper at his mercy:

 

Both goals will surely excite the Etihad faithful, even though Jesus and his teammates are clearly playing against a weakened Honduras side.

Do City have the new Neymar on their hands?

Or will Jesus struggle to replicate this form in the Premier League?
