Brazil have called a 17-year-old youngster

Brazil’s squad for the upcoming fixtures scheduled to play in November against Colombia and Argentina has been announced.

Coach Fernando Diniz has made some changes from the last international break and has called 17-year-old youngster Endrick for the first time. He is the youngest player to be called up by Brazil’s men’s national team since Ronaldo in 1993.

The Brazilian squad face a tough test away from home against Colombia on 17 November. Both teams play at the Estadio Metropolitano Roberto Meléndez in Colombia.

World Champions Argentina are up next for the record World Champions. These two teams play at the Estadio Jornalista Mario Filho.

Brazil have dropped to third place in the CONMEBOL World Cup Qualification campaign for the 2026 edition. The last international break didn’t turn out in Brazil’s favour. The team was held to a 1-1 draw at home by Venezuela. This was followed by a 2-0 loss to Uruguay. Neymar was injured in the same match and is going to miss the full season.

Argentina currently leads the standings with four wins in four games. Uruguay are behind them and level on seven points along with Brazil and Venezuela.

Rodrygo is the current top-scorer in the qualifying campaign for the Brazilians. Joao Pedro of Brighton, Paulinho of Atletico-MG and Pepe of Porto have received their first international call-ups.
