Even Crutches Can't Stop Gabriel Jesus From Getting Jiggy To Song About Himself

Gabriel Jesus is the best young striker Brazil has produced in a startlingly long time. Obviously, this makes him a big deal back home. Brazilian funk artist MC Nego Blue was so impressed by Jesus’s talents that he penned an entire song, “É Gol” (translation: “It’s a Goal”), about the Manchester City man.

And some of the lyrics in case you’re wondering, as run through Google Translate:

Can you believe
That the World Cup will conquer

We can believe, Nego Blue. We can.
