Endrick (17 years old) He is experiencing a very special moment in his career. His First call with the absolute Brazil. A call I expected, but not as soon as it arrived. Of course, no one doubts it. Especially given the deficit of strikers that the five-time world champion has and that could allow him to play a few minutes against Colombia and/or Argentina, in the two World Cup qualifying matches that will be played on this FIFA date.
Live these weeks accompanied by two friends and future teammates at Real Madrid: Rodrygo y Vinicius. Especially with the second it has a close relationship. They share an agency -Roc Nation, TFM until just a few months ago- and have known each other for a year, when Endrick traveled to Madrid to visit the white winger. The trip was promoted, among others, by Fred Pena, founder and CEO of Roc Nation Brazil and representative of both.
The one from Palmeiras moved to the capital of Spain with his closest entourage to learn first-hand about Vinicius’ way of working. His training method, his recoveries and his diet with a clear intention: show Endrick the sacrifices he had to make to succeed at the highest level. A few days at home come in which they strengthened their relationship and were of great help to the young player. At that time there were already many rumors about his arrival in Madrid, Therefore, his visit was not revealed nor were any images published..
They meet again in Granja Comory, a sports city in Brazil. Endrick was one of the first to arrive, excited to start training as soon as possible. Since he arrived, he stuck to Viniciuswho is already considered practically a veteran -at 23 years old he has played 25 games and two major tournaments, Copa América 2021 and World Cup 2022-. There is almost as much excitement to see them together in the canarinha like seeing them at Real Madridwhere they will coincide from July 2024.

It is by no means ruled out that he could play a leading role in the next matches. Gabriel JesusDiniz’s favorite, arrives touched while the rest of the attackers are not nines pure like him. Joao Pedro and Martinelli are their great rivals in this concentration. In fact, in Brazil the debate has begun about who will be the next center forward of the national team. Endrick, Marcos Leonardo -Saints- and Victor Roque -Athletico Paranaense but already signed by him Barcelona– will fight for the position currently controlled by the Arsenal striker.
In any case, in Brazil they are clear: They want me to enjoy prominence. In a survey published by Globe Sports in which the fans are asked about the eleven they prefer for the next two games, Endrick not only appears as a starter, but he is the fourth most voted player. Of the rest of the attackers, Vinicius (1st) and Rodrygo (2nd) surpass him. Bruno Guimaraes completes the podium. The starting team would remain with Alisson; Lodi, Gabriel, Marquinhos, Emerson; Veiga, André, Guimaraes, Rodrygo; Vinicius and Endrick.
