Endrick, one of the young promises of the Brazilian national team, with just 17 years old, said Friday in Los Angeles that he does not need to "skip stages" and patiently awaits the time to be a starter with the 'Selecao'.
The player, who has three goals in five games with the first team, all of them coming off the bench, said that what he wants is to play, whatever position he plays, but clarified that the decision is up to coach Dorival Junior.
"Nobody needs to skip stages. I'm staying on the sidelines, working in training, contributing, playing with my teammates. I'm waiting for God's and Dorival's time," Endrick said at a press conference in Los Angeles, three days before Brazil's Copa America debut.
Endrick commented that Dorival Junior does not think of the good of one player or another, but of the national team, and stressed that "no one is the main actor" of the 'Selecao' and "no one is above Brazil".
Brazil will debut in the tournament next Monday against Costa Rica, in Los Angeles, and then face Paraguay and Colombia, in Group D.
