Brazil legend Romario has told Gabriel Jesus to make sure he has plenty of sex during this summer’s World Cup in Russia.
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.
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.
