WATCH: Gabriel Jesus plays injured, scores amazing goal in Brazil

This kid is special! And he's a Manchester City player!

Gabriel Jesus is truly special.

The Manchester City summer signing won't join the Citizens until January, but he's still playing amazing football in his Brazilian club, Palmeiras. After suffering a groin injury last Sunday, Gabriel went through intensive treatment to recover in time to play a huge Brazilian League match against Flamengo.

Despite being down to ten men, Flamengo scored the first goal and looked destined for a victory, but Gabriel Jesus came to the rescure and scored a beautiful goal:

This is a great strike that hits the post before going in, a shot from a player who knows what he's doing around the box. He's only NINETEEN, he's a Brazil international and will be a Manchester City player in just a few months.

Pep Guardiola sure knows how to buy.
