The Brazilian centre-back has been reflecting on the different levels of support that the national team has received in the past year.

Thiago Silva told SporTV.com that the atmosphere has been tense at times but improved performances and backing from the fans coincided with better results.  

"It was difficult to play in Brazil. We played at Morumbi, we won 1-0, [with a] goal from Hulk, against South Africa, and Brazil continued to be criticised," Silva said.

"At the Maracana [we drew 2-2] against England, who had started to change. [Then there was] a convincing 3-0 victory against France which gave us greater confidence. And then [came] the Confederations Cup. Things began to change in a way we did not expect, especially from the fans, singing like that. That right there took us by surprise and it was a very positive point in our victory."
