Manchester City’s Brazilian duo shined for Brazil in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying.

Gabriel Jesus notched an assist and Ederson earned a clean sheet as Brazil moved six points clear in CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifying with a 2-0 win away to Paraguay.

A perfect 6-0-0 start for them in what is becoming a cake walk for the Samba stars.

The City striker expertly plucked a lofted pass out of the air on the right inside four minutes before racing to the byline and cutting back for the onrushing Neymar.

Notably, Gabriel played on the wing, a position many City fans would love for him to keep playing as he is exceptionally well at it.

Brazil relied on a very game GK, for Ederson’s quick reflexes late on as he made a fine diving save to stop Alberto Espinola, before Lucas Paqueta put the game to bed in stoppage time.

A great win for Brazil as Copa America nears kick off.
