Gabriel Jesus, recruited this summer by Arsenal in Manchester City against a check for 50 million euros, made his debut this Friday in a friendly with the Gunners. Against Nuremberg (German D2), the Brazilian striker offered himself a double and found the fault only 90 seconds after coming into play.
The arrival of Gabriel Jesus had already aroused great enthusiasm among Arsenal supporters. And as much to say that the great premiere of the Brazilian striker in the Gunners jersey will not bring down the hype. This Friday, the ex-Manchester City player, recruited against a check for around 50 million euros from the Sky Blues this summer , made a thunderous debut in a friendly.
Entering the game at the break against Nuremberg (German D2), Gabriel Jesus only needed 90 seconds to find the net. Starting on the right side, the Brazilian initiates a one-two with Nketiah and inherits the ball from a tight angle. He arms a powerful strike and deceives the German goalkeeper.
A double in 45 minutes
In the 75th minute, he doubled the bet on a cross from Martinelli.
Served at the near post, the neo-Gunner cuts perfectly in front of his defender and once again finds the target.
Thanks to another goal from Elneny and two own goals, Arsenal eventually won 5-3 against the German club in their second friendly match.
Last week, Mikel Arteta’s men largely disposed of Ipswich for their first pre-season meeting (5-1).
