This week Man City signed Brazilian international Gabriel Jesus from Palmeiras. Though he will only jointhem in January 2017, City's fans no doubt looked forward to seeing him play as soon as possible, and they didn't have to wait long. With the Brazil national football team taking on South Africa yesterday in the Rio 2016 Olympics, Gabriel Jesus had the perfect opportunity to show Man City fans what he could do... It didn't go well.
After breaking through the South Africa defence, Gabriel Jesus got on the end of a cross-shot and found himself in front of an empty net. Cue a horrific miss and several stunned teammates.
Gabriel Jesus: "I feel ashamed of my miss, I had to score it. I think I won't be able to sleep until I show my real level in the next game."— Seleção Brasileira (@BrazilStats2) August 4, 2016
