The young Brazilian star Andric, a Real Madrid player who is loaned to Palmeiras until the summer of 2024, was called up for the first time to the first Brazilian national team, where the “Samba” team will play two important matches against Argentina and Colombia on the 17th and 22nd of this month.
If the promising star, who is approximately 17 years and 4 months old, participates, he will be the fourth youngest player in history to play with the first team, behind Pele (16 years and 8 months), Edu (16 years and 9 months) and Coutinho (17 years and 28 days).
Fernando Diniz chose to call up the Brazilian gem for two main stops on the Seleção’s road to the 2026 World Cup. There he will team up with two of his future teammates at Real Madrid starting next summer, namely Vinicius and Rodrigo, who also extended their contracts with the white team.
Andrek had this opportunity after he performed exceptionally well since last September. He took advantage of the minutes provided to him by Palmeiras coach Abel Ferreira and had already scored 4 goals in the last 7 matches.
Endrik, who already knows what it means to win the Paulista Championship, the Brazilian League title and the Super Cup, has already made a difference by wearing the colors of the 5-time world champion in the youth teams.
In April 2022, Endrik won the Montague U-17 Championship by defeating Argentina, and was crowned the best player in the tournament and also the top scorer in the tournament with 5 goals.
Although he was called up for the Under-20 World Cup and the Copa America Youth Championship, which takes place next month, he was not allowed to participate in the two tournaments by his Palmeiras team.
