Endrick Leads Brazil to Dramatic Late Win Over Mexico in Copa America Warm-up

17-year-old Brazilian striker Endrick secures a dramatic late win for Brazil over Mexico in a Copa America warm-up match with a stoppage-time goal.

In a thrilling Copa America warm-up match, 17-year-old Brazilian striker Endrick scored a dramatic stoppage-time winner to secure a 3-2 victory over Mexico.

Brazil appeared to be cruising towards a comfortable win after taking a two-goal lead through Fulham midfielder Andreas Pereira in the 5th minute and Arsenal's Gabriel Martinelli in the 54th minute at the Kyle Field Stadium in Texas.

However, Mexico fought back, reducing the deficit through Julian Quinones in the 73rd minute before Guillermo Martinez Ayala seemingly salvaged a draw with an injury-time equalizer in the 92nd minute, converting his own saved header from a corner.

Just as the Mexican team thought they had secured a draw, substitute Vinicius Junior delivered a cross into the box for his future Real Madrid teammate, Endrick, who headed the ball past goalkeeper Julio Gonzalez in the 96th minute.

This victory marks Brazil's third consecutive unbeaten game under new coach Dorival Junior, following their 1-0 win over England at Wembley in March and a 3-3 draw with Spain.

Brazil will play one final friendly against the United States in Orlando on Wednesday before kicking off their Copa America campaign against Costa Rica on the 24th of this month.
