(Video) Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus earns a straight red card for a reckless kick on a Chilean defender during Copa America

Gabriel Jesus’ 2021 Copa America woes have continued during Brazil’s quarter-final fixture against Chile.

After a sluggish half in which the Manchester City forward struggled to get anything going while on the ball, he was shown a red card during the early stages of the second half for one shocking challenge.

The Brazilian forward came in late on a challenge against Chilean left-back Eugenio Mena but completely whiffed on making contact with the ball as instead, he kicked the defender in the face.

Without much hesitation, the forward earned a straight red card from match official Patricio Loustau.
