A 15-year-old Brazilian wonderkid scores an incredible goal, drawing comparisons to Vinicius Jr.
Endrick, a 15-year-old Brazilian wonderkid who scored an incredible solo goal for Palmeiras’ youth team over the weekend, has attracted the attention of almost every major European club.
This week, a young Brazilian scored a stunning solo goal for Palmeiras, drawing comparisons to Real Madrid’s silky Vinicius Jr.
Endrick, 15, has exploded onto the scene after scoring 165 goals in 169 games for the club’s youth teams.
It’s no surprise, then, that his name has been linked to some of Europe’s biggest clubs, and that his abilities have been compared to those of some of Brazil’s greatest players in recent memory.
The youngster, who was born in 2006, was seen intercepting a stray pass before turning 180 degrees and skinning a defender in a video released this weekend.
He then pushes the ball past a second opponent before chipping the rushing goalkeeper with ease.
Endrick scored his third goal in this year’s Copinha (Sao Paulo Junior Cup), a tournament for players under the age of 21.
Like most Brazilian wonderkids, the youngster’s progress is being closely monitored by clubs such as Liverpool, Barcelona, Manchester United, and Manchester City.
Given that he shares an agent with the aforementioned Vinicius, a move to Real Madrid may be the most likely.
Endrick has made such an impact in Palmeiras’ youth system that he has competed in three age groups this year: U15, U17, and U20.
Let us know if you think Endrick looks older than 15 in the comments section below…
Despite his obvious abilities, some on social media questioned his age after seeing the video, with his hair raising a few eyebrows.
“15?! His hairline says otherwise.”
“At the very least, he’s 25,” one user wrote.
“I’m the Loch Ness Monster if he’s 15,” another joked.
