Palmeiras won their second straight Brasileirão Serie A title with their 1-1 draw against Cruzeiro. And Endrick was right in the middle of the action, scoring the only goal for the champions in the 21st minute. An 80th minute goal from Nikao denied them the win, but one point was enough for the defending champions to retain their title.
Endrick now has the second most goals scored by an Under 17 player in the Brazilian league behind the legendary Pele. The striker has scored 14 goals in 38 top flight games, with 11 of them coming this season.
Endrick surpasses Neymar with title winning goal for Palmeiras
The youngster was making headlines since 2022, even before he was handed his first professional contract. And shortly after, his transfer to Real Madrid was confirmed (which will be completed this summer).
In his brief spell with the first team, he has put the world on notice and shown everybody why Los Blancos spent so much to sign him in spite of his age and relative inexperience. The Spanish giants consider Endrick a vital part of their future project, consisting of fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo on either wing.
After winning a second straight league title with Palmeiras, Endrick also has a taste of the winning mentality that Madrid demands from every player. And fans have every reason to be excited by his arrival, having achieved double digits in goals at such a young age in the top flight.
