Real Madrid striker Endrick was in tears after another goalless performance yesterday.
After ten games in 2023, the Palmeiras teenager is yet to score.
He was hooked on 60 minutes against Bragantino and covered his face when sitting on the bench.
"Yes, it's true, he covered his face because he cried. I'm not his father, but he should have given him a hug," said coach Abel Ferreira at the end of the game.
"He has to be calm. Nobody likes criticism. There is tremendous pressure on him to score five or six goals and he tries to deal with it himself. The goal will appear at the right moment. You just have to be calm and keep smiling."
