While you were sleeping last night, Brazil exercised the demons from their woeful few years in the World Cup and Copa America’s as they continued their excellent form in qualifying for Russia’s tournament in two-years time.
Returning to Belo Horizonte for the first-time since a shock 7-1 defeat to Germany in the World Cup semi-finals two years ago, Brazil made headlines for the right reasons this time as they eased past the age-old enemy of Argentina to a 3-0 victory.
Goals from Philippe Coutinho, Neymar and Paulinho extended La Selecao’s run in South America’s World Cup Qualifying stage to just one loss in their eleven matches and keeps Brazil on top of the pile.
For those that did watch the game, it was another chance to see the highly-rated talents of Palmeiras forward Gabriel Jesus, who is set to join Manchester City in January- and fans cannot wait to see the Olympic gold medal winner in the Premier League.
Gabriel Jesus can't come soon enough. Pretty clear Aguero is suffering from the Negredo-syndrome. Homesick. Minds not in the right place.

Gabriel Jesus is one of the best players off the ball I've ever watched in my life. Finding space, pressing & making runs all 10/10.

Can't believe we let that Spanish nutcase take the #9 jersey it was perfect for Gabriel Jesus

Glad Firmino doesn't make this team, Gabriel Jesus is a frightening talent. I'd kill to have him at Liverpool

Gabriel Jesus will be such an amazing player for City
