Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus is expected to start for Selecao against Switzerland on Sunday evening.

The last Brazilian player to win the Golden Boot was Ronaldo at the 2002 World Cup, which was also the last time they won the title.

"Even before we had these options given by Tite [of playing Neymar, Philippe Coutinho and Willian up front] I have always been relaxed. I'm very active with or without the ball," he told a news conference, according to FourFourTwo.

"Not just because of a formation, but because of everybody on the field.

"About being the top goalscorer, there are so many players. I can't say what other players I am thinking about, of course, but I'm focused on helping the team however I can. Whether that be with goals, or assists, or tackles.

"Our focus is to play for the group and I believe that if the group plays well, individuals will show up."
