Man City's Gabriel Jesus suffers broken eye socket on Brazil duty

Brazil's football federation has revealed that Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus sustained a broken eye socket during Friday's 1-0 friendly defeat to Argentina.

Gabriel was taken off the field on a stretcher late in the game after being hit by a stray elbow during an aerial challenge with club teammate Nicolas Otamendi.

He was initially given the all-clear after precautionary tests but the CBF later said that, after a more detailed examination, a fracture was diagnosed in the bone that protects his left eye.

Brazil will not call up a replacement for Tuesday's friendly with Australia, also in Melbourne.

ESPN's Manchester City correspondent Jonathan Smith tells us who he thinks could be playing under Pep Guardiola in the 2017-18 season.

The player himself had also taken to Twitter to assure fans that the injury was not serious, writing: "I am fine."

Gabriel was a constant threat before 95,569 fans at the Melbourne Cricket Ground but missed Brazil's best chance to clinch an equaliser, striking the post in front of an open goal after having rounded the goalkeeper.

Defender Gabriel Mercado's goal on the stroke of half-time helped end Tite's undefeated record since taking the Brazil job 12 months ago, and give new Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli a winning debut.
