In the midst of the tumultuous events that unfolded during the FIFA World Cup qualification series clash between Brazil and Argentina - marked by chaos, fights, and violence - there emerged a notable moment for the young Real Madrid talent, Endrick Felipe.

The 17-year-old prodigy marked his home debut for the Selecao at the iconic Maracana Stadium, lacing up a pair of golden signature edition Tekela v4 boots from New Balance.

Despite entering the game as a substitute in the 72nd minute for Barcelona's Raphinha, Endrick could not alter Brazil's fate in the match. However, his choice of footwear on the night garnered significant attention.

Recently making history as the fourth youngest player to represent Brazil and the youngest in 57 years, as reported by Soccer Bible, Endrick is poised to leave an indelible mark on the world of football.

As reported by Marca, Real Madrid secured his signing in a transfer last December, with the young forward creating a buzz in the football world.

Endrick, who continues to captivate audiences with his exceptional skills, recently found himself in the midst of a bidding war among sports brands. Ultimately, it seems the current Palmeiras star has inked a deal with New Balance.

Endrick joins New Balance

Reports indicate that Endrick has committed to a long-term contract with New Balance until 2028, despite enticing offers from other major brands such as Nike, Adidas, and PUMA.

It is believed that he chose New Balance because both he and his family appreciate the prospect of him becoming a prominent figure for the brand in the years to come.

In recent years, New Balance has been proactive in providing signature boots to several of their key athletes, a move not commonly seen with other brands unless the player is at the absolute pinnacle of the sport.
