Man City star Gabriel Jesus vows to beat mini-goal drought

He demonstrated his quality in preseason when he put Sergio Aguero clean through on the edge of the opposition penalty area in City's game against Tottenham in Nashville - and he nearly repeated the trick with Club teammate Jesus before Brazil's final World Cup qualifier on Tuesday.

"I was able to kick the ball to his back".

Ederson is now Brazil's second-choice goalkeeper behind another talented young shot-stopper, 25-year-old Alisson of Roma, but if he continues his excellent form, he may well find himself between the posts when Brazil kick off their World Cup campaign at Russian Federation 2018.

Tuesday's game marked Ederson's worldwide debut, and the size of the occasion was not lost on the man who has conceded just two goals in his first nine games for City.

"I am evolving more than a year ago, with many experiences in the national team and in Europe - this is doing me good".

"I felt the warmth of the Brazilians".

"I will continue doing what I have always done, whether in Manchester or in the national team", added the Manchester City striker. "I'm very happy about what I've been showing everyone, but I know I have to keep working, running, showing that I should be selected". "If you don't suffer goals, we are closer to winning the game, that's what happened against Chile, we managed a clean sheet and we scored three goals".
