‘Ronaldo, are you smiling right now?”… ‘Real going’ Brazilian 17-year-old god “I prefer Ronaldo to Messi”
“I like Ronaldo more than Messi,” says 2006-born ‘superstar prospect’ Endrik after becoming the youngest player in Brazil’s history to make a top-five debut for the national team.
Endrique made his Brazil A debut in the fifth South American qualifying match for the FIFA Confederations Cup North America 2026 at the Roberto Melendez Metropolitan Stadium in Barranquilla, Colombia, on July 17, when Brazil beat Colombia (1-2 Brazil).
The striker is a highly anticipated phenom. He broke into the Brazilian first division in 2022 with SE Faumeiras and scored three goals in seven games in his first season. This season, he is the team’s top scorer with nine goals in 27 games.
That’s why Real want him. Real completed the signing of Endrick last winter for a whopping €60 million with options. He will join Real next summer when he turns 18.
Endrique made his first appearance for Brazil against Colombia. He came on for Hapinha in the 37th minute with the score at 1-2. He played about eight minutes and made his appearance count. He did not record an offensive point. 보스토토 도메인
He became the youngest player (17 years, 118 days) to make the national team since the “legend” Ronaldo (17 years, 186 days) in 1993.
All eyes were on Endrique for playing on the big stage at such a young age.
At a press conference ahead of Argentina’s sixth South American qualifier on Tuesday, Endrique was asked who he thought was better, Messi or Ronaldo.
“For me, Pele is the king, there is no one like him,” he said, before adding, “Lionel Messi (Inter Miami) is the best player in the world this year and a phenomenal person. I want to enjoy the moment of playing with him, which I only see in games, but I prefer Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr),” he said honestly.
