Man City forward Gabriel Jesus suffered a fractured eye socket during international duty.

Gabriel Jesus sustained the injury during Brazil’s international friendly against rivals Argentina in Australia. The fracture which was a result of a nasty collision with Man City teammate Nicolas Otamendi who caught his club mate with a trailing elbow and Jesus immediately collapsed on the ground.
