Goals are not my strong point’ – Gabriel Jesus


Arsenal striker, Gabriel Jesus has admitted that “goals are not my strong point.”

Jesus once again failed to score during international duty with Brazil, as they lost 1-0 to Argentina in a 2026 World Cup qualifier.

This extends his record to nine games without a goal for his national side.

But despite his poor record for Brazil, which currently stands at one goal in 29 appearances since October 2019, Jesus insists his barren run will end at some stage.

He said: “There are things that bothered me a lot in the post-2018 World Cup cycle. I was younger, I had a different mentality.

“Today I am a more mature man, more educated, a family man. I understand football is a priority for me, and I know I need to be well to do my best, especially for Brazil.

“There are things that I can’t control. I train, I look for, I try, I move, I help the team. I believe that goals are not my strong point, but I score goals, I’m there to score goals. I did so much in the national team.”
