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.
