Palmeiras forward Endrick shines. At only 16, he already appears to be a far superior player to many in his age group.
First, let’s highlight how adaptable he is. Left winger, right winger, or striker, he can play all three forward positions. Additionally, he is versatile enough to fill in in offensive midfield. In the offensive zone, he possesses remarkable explosiveness and can provide instantaneous results from any position.
No one should dismiss his physical appearance either. Despite his little stature, the footballer is everything but weak. When it comes to single combat, he’s formidable. He has excellent tackle detection skills and thrives on difficulty.
The most striking thing we noticed about him was his striking similarity to French football legend Zinedine Zidane. Don’t get us wrong, we’re not trying to draw parallels between him and the French World Cup champion, but after watching his highlights, we couldn’t help but notice striking similarities in their playing styles. Endrick’s back-heel and overhead flicks, composure with the ball in tight spaces, and deft touch while trapping the ball brought to mind the French legend.
