ARSENAL star Gabriel welcomed Endrick to the Brazil squad by clattering the wonderkid in training.
The 17-year-old was called up to the first-team squad for the first time for upcoming matches against Colombia and Argentina.
He has impressed for Palmeiras and will join Real Madrid next year – when he turns 18.
But Gabriel taught him a lesson about what elite level football is all about as he brushed him aside in Brazil training.
Endrick attempted to dribble past the Gunners defender, but Gabriel used his strength and experience to cut across the striker and shoulder barged him to the ground.
Some fans loved Gabriel's treatment of the youngster as they feel it will help him adjust to top level football, while others believe Gabriel was a little excessive with his tackle.

Big things are expected of the highly-rated Endrick, who turned down interest from Chelsea to sign for Real Madrid.
Real have tied down Endrick until 2027 with the option to extend his stay for a further three years.
Palmeiras academy director Joao Paulo Sampaio has tipped Endrick to become a world star, even comparing the teenager to Cristiano Ronaldo.
He said: "If injuries respect him, I don't see a ceiling for him.
"He has quality, a strong personality and a champion mentality. In that regard, he resembles Cristiano (Ronaldo). He trains hard, is kind and has humility. We love him very much because he makes himself loved. He tries to please everyone around him.
"He has everything to be a world star in the future."
