“My girlfriend, my family, and my representatives are present. He remarked, “I am holding myself here, not much of a crier, but this is something special, and I am very happy.”

His cameo in the second half suggests that Madrid has acquired another outstanding player for the future.
Endrick, who replaced Rodrygo in the 71st minute, didn’t take long to make an impression. After Vinicius Junior was stopped by England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, he fired into an empty net.

Endrick, who had to wait for VAR to confirm the score after an offside check, could not contain his joy as he rushed off in celebration and fell to his knees. According to statistician Opta, it was his first senior goal for Brazil and, at 17 years, 246 days, a record for an international game at Wembley.

Though he had a late opportunity to beat Pickford, he was unable to score another.
“The opportunity I had in the end was somewhat impacted by everything at the end. Endrick vowed not to lie. “I was just considering how to score. That was all I could think of. I had to stop thinking about the contest.

His lone goal proved to be sufficient in the end to win the game and snap England’s 21-game winning streak at the national stadium.

“We are aware of his danger as a player. Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate remarked, “He’s managed to follow in for the goal.” “Our goal defense needed to have been stronger. For him, this is a very fortunate time.

“We had just as many shots on goal as they did, but that merciless moment ultimately decides the outcome of the game.”

Endrick was just 16 when Madrid struck a deal with him in December 2022, but he was already considered one of Brazil’s future stars. According to Brazilian media, the deal was valued at around 60 million euros, or $64 million.
In July, he turns eighteen.

He helped Palmeiras win the Brazilian league last year, coming back from a 12-point deficit to defeat Botafogo at one point.

He’ll be at Madrid with other famous Brazilians like Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.

England not only lost the game but also faced a possible setback as defender Kyle Walker appeared to have a hamstring problem. After receiving treatment on the field, he was taken off twenty minutes later.
Southgate stated, “He is sensing something, but he is not quite sure what it is because he is not a player that gets injured very often.” “We need to evaluate it over the course of the next few days.”

Harry Kane will return to Bayern Munich and will not play in Tuesday’s friendly match against Belgium, according to Southgate.
