Star signing Gabriel Jesus has scored a brace in his first game for Arsenal. The 25-year-old came on as a substitute at half-time when the Gunners made it 5-3 (0-2) in a friendly at 1. FC Nürnberg and brought about the turning point.
At first it was the people of Nuremberg who made an impression on their home crowd a week before the start of the 2nd Bundesliga season. Johannes Geis (24′) and new signing Kwadwo Duah (29′) gave the club a 2-0 lead and shocked the Premier League guests.
In the second half, the Gunners stepped up a gear. Jesus, who moved from Manchester City to London for around 52 million earlier in the week, started the turnaround with his first goal (47th).
Mohamed Elneny (54′), own goals by Christopher Schindler (57′) and Tim Handwerker (63′) and Jesus’ second goal (75′) ensured Arsenal’s victory. Lukas Schleimer (73rd) was also successful for Nuremberg.
