Video: New Man City Signing Gabriel Jesus Misses Absolute Sitter For Brazil

New Manchester City signing Gabriel Jesus has been in action for Brazil this evening as the football at the 2016 Olympics gets underway, and fans won’t be too enthralled with his performance.

Jesus played alongside Barcelona superstar Neymar, as the Brazilians took on their South African counterparts in Rio, but despite playing against 10 men for the last half-hour, the five-time World Cup winners just couldn’t find a goal.

Without question, the best chance of the night fell to City’s newest recruit – who proceeded to make an absolute dog’s dinner:

The match finished 0-0, and means the hosts will now have an uphill struggle to qualify for the next stages, and will play Iraq on Monday.

Jesus, 19, has signed a five-year deal but will remain on loan at the Brazilian club until the conclusion of the national championship in December.

He is regarded as one of the most exciting talents to emerge from Brazil in recent years – but we’ll probably reserve judgement for now.
