Gabriel Jesus Talks About His World Cup Sticker Book Obsession
Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus will play in his first World Cup this summer. The Manchester City player has been capped 15 times by his country and already has 9 goals.
He will lead the line for the Seleção at the tender age of 20. Yet for Jesus, one of the biggest thrills of playing in the competition is a little surprising.
Jesus says seeing his face in the 2018 World Cup sticker book is one of the biggest thrills of taking part in the tournament.
Speaking with ESPN, he said, “Man, you look at it and you don't believe it because you used to collect the stickers of so many players and, today, yours is there.
“You get your own and you see everyone talking about it, you see everyone wanting to get your sticker. This is crazy. It makes me so happy. Sometimes I can't even believe it.
“It is simply the biggest tournament in the world of football, the most desired by every player in every country. Before, you had an idea. Now you really know what it's like."
