Jackpot for Jesus

Yesterday, Palmeiras 19-year-old forward Gabriel Jesus made his debut in the Seleção, having being called up for the World Cup qualifier away to Ecuador. With confidence soaring, fresh from winning a gold medal with his country at the Olympics a couple of weeks back, Gabriel was fundamentally important in securing Brazil’s first qualifier victory in Ecuador in 33 years: he suffered the penalty that Neymar converted to open up the scorecard, then declared the final result by scoring two spectacular goals himself – a clever flick and a shot on the turn.

Below, enjoy a selection of articles from the international press and the goals.
