New Manchester City signing Gabriel Jesus has finally scored a goal in the Olympics:

Jesus found the back of the net in the 40th minute of Brazil's fantastic 4-0 win over Denmark on Wednesday night in Salvador, Bahia. It was the first great match for the young Seleção after two disappointing 0-0 draws against Iraq and South Africa, and just like the rest of the team, Gabriel Jesus was back to his best form.

Brazil coach Rogério Micale changed Gabriel's position, from striker to left wing, and Jesus showed plenty of improvement, combining very nicely with Brazil skipper and superstar Neymar Jr. Along with left-back Douglas Santos, the three simply destroyed Denmark's defense on the wing, and that led to an easy victory for Brazil.

Pep Guardiola is obviously interested in his new signing, and was certainly pleased to watch Gabriel Jesus play well and score for the first time with the national team.

Well done, kid.
