Brazil's Dani Alves hails Man City striker Jesus as their 'new Ronaldo'

15 November 2017

Brazil defender Dani Alves has described team-mate Gabriel Jesus as the "new Ronaldo" ahead of Tuesday's meeting against England at Wembley Stadium. "He's doing what he loves".

Brazil boss Tite has suggested that it is hard to make a direct comparison between Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus and Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane.

Jesus has enjoyed a terrific start to his club career in England with Manchester City and the 20-year-old has also formed a potent combination with Neymar that helped Brazil book their spot in next year's World Cup finals in Russian Federation.

"To the point he came here with a natural fluency".

"The characteristics of Gabriel Jesus and Kane are a bit different". Gabriel attacks the space, gives us that depth; Kane is more positional. England, in contrast, are without a host of key players including Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Raheem Sterling, leading Southgate to call up several youngsters to their first senior global squad.

"It's very special to play at Wembley", Alves said.

"A professional performance tonight against one of the best teams in the world", he wrote.

Brazil again expect to have Philippe Coutinho available at Wembley after he missed Friday's defeat of Japan because of the groin injury that had recently ruled him out at Liverpool.
