Jesus can emulate Brazil great Ronaldo, says Alves

Jesus can emulate Brazil great Ronaldo, says Alves”

'For all that he's done, all that he's achieved, there's no pressure, ' Dani Alves said of his team-mate on Monday.

Brazil captain Dani Alves has insisted his side will not take a youthful England team lightly in Tuesday's friendly clash at Wembley.

"I was not kidding when I called him 'the new Ronaldo, '" said the PSG full-back, "I keep thinking the same thing". They have a similar drive. "He's going to be one of the great players in football, he's already one of the best in the world". 'He's doing what he loves.

Brazil coach Tite, who has transformed Brazil's fortunes after taking over from Dunga in June previous year, said: "City should be very pleased with Palmeiras and the coaches there, who formed a player who is already at such a good level".

"To the point he came here with a natural fluency". He didn't need much time to adapt, he was already showing a very good level. Alves played with Ronaldo for five years before the latter retired from national team duty in 2011. "That is what we will be trying to do".

They have also this year won World Cups at U20 and U17 level, and a European Championship at U19, and Tite said: "All the big teams, like England, have this new generation coming through". England, in contrast, are without a host of key players including Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Raheem Sterling, leading Southgate to call up several youngsters to their first senior worldwide squad.

Tite added: "The English team is very technical and has a physical presence".

Jesus' strike partner Neymar picked up an ankle knock in training last night but is expected to feature at Wembley tonight.
