Jesus is expected to lead the Brazilian attack — just as Romario did in 1994 when the South American nation won the fourth of their five global titles.
Romario ended USA 94 with the Golden Ball after scoring five times. Jesus has been likened to Romario and built up as a key player for Brazil.

Striker Gabriel Jesus has been told that he should ‘have lots of good sex’ during the World Cup
So what advice does the former world champion have for the Manchester City youngster?
Speaking to Lance.com, Romario revealed: ‘Have enough sex is one piece of advice — as is making the most you can of your days off. And, of course, you must concentrate on match days and during the games.
‘I believe Jesus is quite aware of his football and what it represents for the Brazilian nation. He has to arrive at the World Cup and score a goal. That’s the most important thing.’
Jesus has scored 18 goals in 46 games for club and country this season but has been guilty of missing lots of good chances in recent months.
Romario stressed the importance of Jesus being clinical in Russia.
He said: ‘Jesus must understand that, at the World Cup, the first opportunity you get to score a goal maybe your last.
‘The World Cup is a totally different competition from the others. You have to be 100 per cent focused, otherwise you won’t give your best for your country.
‘There is one thing Jesus must do: go to the World Cup and score goals.
‘It is good that he is playing in Europe because maybe 80 or 90 percent of the best players in the world play there and he will have faced them already.
‘But the first thing I advise him to do is have lots of good sex.’
