Jesus has enjoyed a terrific start to his club career in England with Manchester City and the 20-year-old has also formed a potent combination with Neymar that helped Brazil book their spot in next year’s World Cup finals in Russia.

"I wasn’t joking when I called him the new Ronaldo," Alves told British media of similarities to the three-times FIFA World Player of the Year.

"He’s already great and will get better. For all that he’s done, all that he’s achieved, there’s no pressure."

"He’s doing what he loves."

Brazil come into the game at Wembley on the back of a 3-1 win over Japan in a friendly on Friday.
