The future star of Real Madrid, Endrick broke the record of the ‘phenomenon’ Ronaldo for Brazil

Endrick Felipe Moreira de Sousa or otherwise known only as Endrick has broken the record of the legend Ronaldo Nazario by being the youngest in his debut with the jersey of the Brazilian National Team.

Brazil were beaten 2-1 by Colombia in a 2026 World Cup qualifier on a night of poor performance for Real Madrid after their star player Vinicius Junior was injured.

However, the young talent, Endrick, who will be transferred to the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer, made his debut with the Real Madrid shirt.

At just 17 years and 118 days, Endrick has become the fourth youngest player to play for Brazil and the youngest for 57 years.

“It has always been a big dream to wear the jersey of Brazil,” Endrick initially told Marca.

“Things have happened very quickly in my life and this is another dream come true.”

“I can only thank my family, my agents and Palmeiras, who have always believed in me,” concluded the striker.

With this debut, Endrick surpasses Ronaldo Nazario, who was just 17 years, six months and 2 days when he first donned the famous Brazil jersey in 1993, two decades ago.

Pele holds the record as the youngest ever at 16 in 1957, Edu was 62 days away from his 17th birthday in 1966 and Coutinho had turned 17 just 28 days before his Brazil debut in 1960.
