Who is Endrick?

As noted by Wikipedia, Endrick Felipe Moreira de Sousa is a 16-year-old teen sensation who plays for Palmeiras. The youngster is highly rated and wanted by numerous big-name clubs. He’s scored three goals in five games so far this season.

Despite being only 16, Ronaldo believes he deserves a place at the global showpiece. Ronaldo was 17 when he went to his first World Cup in 1994, but he didn’t play any games in the tournament.
