And in Manchester City terms, their striker Gabriel Jesus out-shone his clubmate and Argentina star Sergio Aguero , scoring in the semi-final and final.

The following weeks saw Jesus picked as first choice by Pep Guardiola, no respecter of reputations, while Aguero uncharacteristically stopped to speak to the media about the possibility of leaving the Blues.

But when Leroy Sane was injured early in the game at Wembley, it was to Jesus that Pep Guardiola turned, with both strikers sitting on the bench.

He scored, City won 4-0, and Aguero watched from the bench, a smile masking his hurt at the first time his legendary status at City had counted for nothing.

It is a genuinely tough call for Guardiola – he clearly loves Jesus’ work-rate and defensive capabilities, but recognises that Aguero is far likelier to grab the goal that wins the game.

The Copa America saw Brazil recapture their rightful place as the kings of South America.

Guardiola persuaded him that a stronger team ethic would make him a better player, Aguero rose to the challenge, and Jesus has taken a back-seat ever since.
