Referee's body cam footage shows just how insane Gabriel Jesus' chipped goal was vs MLS All-Stars

A new angle of Gabriel Jesus' chipped goal against the MLS All-Stars has emerged and shows just how brilliant a finish it was from the Brazilian.

Arsenal thrashed the best of the MLS 5-0 in their pre-season friendly at Audi Field in Washington DC on Wednesday.

Jesus opened the scoring with an instinctive chip, which was described as 'absolutely disgusting' by the American commentators.

Leandro Trossard, Jorginho, Gabriel Martinelli and new signing Kai Havertz also went on to score in a comfortable victory for the Gunners.

Footage filmed by the referee's body camera has now provided an incredible new angle of Jesus' opening goal.

The clip, which has gone viral on social media, shows the ball rolling out to the edge of the area just in front of the referee, Ted Unkel.

Jesus comes into shot and chips a superb first-time finish over MLS All-Stars goalkeeper Roman Burki, who plays his club football for St Louis City.

Several MLS players are frozen to the spot as Jesus' shot hits the post and beats Burki, with the Arsenal player then wheeling away in celebration.

Speaking after the match, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said he was delighted with the performance of his side.

"It was a great occasion and a great atmosphere. It was great to see so many Arsenal supporters filling the stadium," said Arteta.

"We had some great moments in the game and some moments, especially in the first-half that weren't that great, but we're still very early in pre-season and it was great to see some debuts with Jurrien [Timer], Auston [Trusty] and Declan [Rice] obviously, and I was really pleased in the end with the result."

When asked if he believed the club's new signings had bedded in quickly, Arteta added: "They are and we have to find that fluidity within the game, and those relationships.

"That's something that is difficult to predict as a coach what's going to work, but sometimes whether it's on the pitch or sitting at the table, and they find that chemistry between them.

"Especially, in the first half, the way we started, we were a bit suffocated with the weather, and we started to give too many simple balls away, and we could not really control the game.

"But it was true that we were exceptional in both boxes today; every time we were in the final third in good positions, we put the ball in the back of the net, and we have to defend moments in those transitions when we give the ball away.

"I think we defended really well, as well."
