Brazil is out of the Copa America after a disappointing display during the tournament. Brazilian fans were not convinced by the team's matches, and some fans expected more from some of the biggest stars, such as Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo. Another name that excited fans was Endrick Felipe, a 17-year-old striker from Palmeiras who will play for Real Madrid next season. The striker scored in friendly matches ahead of the Copa America, but he did not start in any match until the game against Uruguay because of a suspension Vinicius Jr. received. The Brazilian striker played the whole match but did not deliver. Endrick had a poor stat he had in the match against Uruguay last night. Endrick only completed one pass throughout the entire match vs Uruguay, and it was the kickoff. Other stats show that he actually made two passes out of five attempted passes during the match. Endrick struggled to create chances, but he did take a shot on target, which was easily stopped by Uruguay's goalkeeper, Sergio Rochet.

Endrick also had the least touches of any outfield player to play 90 minutes in the minutes. The young Brazilian striker took a total of 23 touches. He also lost the most duel in the match with 10. The future Real Madrid striker struggled to get the play and get a clear shot on goal to score. He did have one successful dribble out of three attempted dribbles but was dispossessed two times. He also had two touches in the opposition box.

Endrick was involved in a little problem with Ronald Araujo, who pushed him from the back after the young striker dropped him with pressure early in the game. It was an early look at what Real Madrid vs. FC Barcelona will be like next season. Endrick showed respect towards Araujo when the Barcelona defender left the pitch injured, and the Brazilian made sure to check on him.

Endrick, after the game

The Brazilian national team will consider the Copa America 2024 a failure, and Endrick is already looking forward to the World Cup, which is two years away. Endrick said, "We want to put Brazil on top. We will continue to work and prepare for the World Cup. I know that it is very difficult at this moment, but I hope that we will have the support of all Brazilians."
