It’s only natural that the 15-year-old gets most of the attention on and off the field.

But he wasn’t the only standout in the first final.

Figueiredo, a midfielder of technical leadership and owner of a personality that makes the club trust in an important future with the alviverde shirt, scored the first goal after a good individual move. In the next move, Endrick received from partner Luis Guilherme, another talent from Palmeiras, and scored his first, counting on the deflection in the marking in a finalization inside the area.

Popular and on the cover of the newspaper in Europe, the striker showed his physical strength in sprints that were won against the Vasco team. It is true that, as a typical striker, he was hungry for a shot that could have been turned into a pass for Coutinho and also squandered a great opportunity just before taking responsibility and scoring the fourth, in a penalty kick.

Before the last goal of the day, however, one of the talented left-handers of the Palmeirense generation had already scored the third – Thalys kicked with the first shot, with his right foot, and scored a great goal.

– I’m upset because I had the chance (to score three goals), but I had another one later and I did, unfortunately I don’t know what happened, but thank God I scored a penalty – said Endrick, author of 80 goals in 109 matches with the Palmeiras shirt. , considering from the under-13 category.

At the age of 15, Endrick asked to play in the Copa do Brasil Sub-17 to keep himself in competitive activity in a short-shooting tournament. It worked, so much so that the forward now has six goals scored in five games in the category.

While he still can’t be registered as a professional athlete, Endrick is fulfilling goals and jumping stages at the base. It’s been that way since he was 11, when he started his career at the club, and it can also be that way in the most important leap in his career so far.

If Abel Ferreira wants and needs, Endrick will be available to the professional from the end of next month.

– I want it to come in July. If Abel calls me I’ll give 110% in training, if he can put me in, play well to win the favor of the teacher, teammates and fans. My head is calm, I’m thinking here at the base, if Abel calls me, my head will go to the professional. Even at the base, Palmeiras fans are phenomenal – said the Palmeiras player.
