Brazil's Gabriel Jesus likened to Ronaldo

Dani Alves Coutinho to return for Brazil vs England

Dani Alves has compared Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus to former Brazil striker Ronaldo.

The visitors to Wembley are among the favourites for next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation, owing largely to the potent combination of Jesus and Neymar in the final third.

"For all that he's done, all that he has achieved, there is no pressure on Gabriel". He's already great, and will get even better.

Manchester City striker Jesus scored his eighth global goal in last week's 3-1 win over Japan and appears set to play a key role at Russian Federation 2018.

Brazil boss Tite has suggested that it is hard to make a direct comparison between Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus and Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane. He didn't need much time to adapt, he was already showing a very good level.

That man is Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus, who will start at Wembley in search of his ninth global goal. Gabriel attacks the space, gives us that depth; Kane is more positional. He's good in the air, good with his right foot and left.

Tite was keen to use the Japan game for some pre-World Cup experiments, but was always expected to return to his first XI against England, desperate to see how his team perform against a big side from outside of South America.

Both England and Brazil will head to Russian Federation next summer for the 2018 World Cup. "In the Premier League there are so many foreign coaches and different players; it's a very strong league with different styles".

The coach admitted last week that he had hoped to once again shift Philippe Coutinho into a central midfield role against Japan before injury ruled him out of that clash.
