Endrick Shines in Brazil’s Thrilling Victory Over Mexico

Brazilian teenage prodigy Endrick showcased his exceptional talent in a thrilling match against Mexico, securing a 3-2 victory for Brazil with a stoppage-time header in a preparatory friendly ahead of the Copa America.

Endrick, just 17 years old, netted his third goal in as many appearances for the national team, heading in a cross from substitute Vinicius Jr. six minutes into added time. This decisive goal capped off a dramatic and hard-fought match.

The scoring opened with Fulham midfielder Andreas Pereira, who found the net from a Savio pass, giving Brazil an early lead. Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli then doubled Brazil’s advantage just after halftime with a simple tap-in.

Mexico fought back valiantly, with Julian Quinones scoring in the 73rd minute to narrow the deficit. Guillermo Martinez Ayala then equalized in the second minute of stoppage time, setting the stage for Endrick’s late heroics.

Endrick is set to join Real Madrid from Palmeiras this summer, having finalized the move in December. His performance continues to generate excitement ahead of his transition to European football.
