Alves works his magic prior to G. Jesus' goal

WATCH: Alves steals the show in the build-up to Gabriel Jesus' goal

July 2, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The right back had a massive influence in Brazil's opening goal with his impressive ball-handling skills.

Gabriel Jesus may have scored the opening goal for Brazil, but Dani Alves truly stole the show prior to the tap-in.

The right back was crucial for Brazil's first half goal against Argentina and during the entire first half, with his leadership skills and ball-handling display taking center-stage.

Just as the game neared the 20th-minute mark, Alves took the ball and struggled to maintain the ball near his right foot. Moments later, Alves got away from an Argentine defender with an overhead flick, and proceeded to make one more dribble before handing out a no-look pass to Roberto Firmino, who found Jesus inside the box to give Brazil the lead.

Yes, Manchester City's striker may have scored the goal, but Alves' skills were the reason why fans inside the stadium screamed at the top of their lungs this crucial goal. 

Have a look at Jesus' goal, which was preceeded by Alves' massive display (Image might be geo-restricted).
