Manchester City won’t be back in action until the second Saturday of September when they face Liverpool in the Premier League, but some of the Blues’ biggest stars are in action with their national teams.
One of those stars is Gabriel Jesus, who will start up front for Brazil when they face Ecuador in a key World Cup Qualifier for the Seleção. Brazil have already qualified for next year’s World Cup Finals in Russia, but they could guarantee first place in the South America group with two wins against Ecuador and Colombia.
Gabriel Jesus will lead the attack alongside the world’s most expensive player in PSG’s Neymar and Chelsea star Willian, and Brazil will be looking to maintain their unbeaten record under manager Tite against a tough Ecuador side. This is a game you should not miss, and you might see Gabriel Jesus scoring for his country.
Brazil starting XI:
Alisson; Alves, Marquinhos, Miranda, Marcelo; Casemiro; Willian, Paulinho, R.Augusto, Neymar; G.Jesus
Ecuador starting XI:
Banguera; Velasco, Achilier, Arboleda, Ramírez; A.Valencia, Quiñónez, Noboa, Gaibor; Martínez, E.Valencia
