We lost an important player, but we gained a player who has been emerging and looking for an opportunity. Who knows, maybe that will be Endrick’s moment.”said the coach of the Brazilian National Team.

With Vini absent, the person who should play on the left side of the attack is Rodrygowho had been playing more centrally in other games. In this way, Endrick assumes the center forward position and Little Raphinhaauthor of the only Brazilian goal against Colombiashould complete the attacking trio.

Speaking about the 17-year-old, Dorival Júnior does not see Endrick as a center forward by trade. “I think Endrick is not specifically a 9, who plays fixed, he prefers a pivot. He is a player who floats, moves. In fact, in my last teams I always had a center forward by origin, but I have to respect the characteristics of the players we call up”, stated.
