The young Brazilian nugget Endrick ended his season with Palmeiras in the most beautiful way. During the last day of the Brazilian championship Wednesday, the 17-year-old prodigy offered the title to his training club by opening the score on the Cruzeiro pitch.

This goal, his 11th of the season, allowed him to overtake Neymar in the ranking of youngest scorers in a season in Brazil. The future Madrid player has now scored one more goal than the PSG star when he played for Santos. Only Ronaldo, a former legendary striker, still holds the record with 12 goals in the colors of Cruzeiro.

An impressive end to the season before the big departure for Madrid

Endrick finished the 2022 financial year with a bang, scoring 6 goals in the last 8 days. Thanks to his rise in power and his consistency in front of goal, he greatly contributed to Palmeiras’ title after a remarkable rise in the standings.

Next summer, the prodigy will fly to Madrid to join Real, who recruited him last December. Before his departure, he will have another 5 months with Palmeiras to try to do better than Ronaldo and break the precocity record.

At only 17 years old, Endrick has already won two national titles and is freaking out the statistical counters. This new feat crowns a first full season among professionals and confirms his immense talent. From now on, all eyes will be on him to see if he will manage to establish himself so quickly in one of the biggest clubs in the world.
