Miranda begins to form partnership with Thiago SilvaMiranda
Miranda looked strong alongside Thiago Silva as Brazil eased to a 3-1 victory over France last night.
The 30 year old was playing alongside Silva for the first time and despite conceding the first goal they seemed to understand each other very well.
"It was the first time I played with Thiago (Silva)," Miranda said. "It was solid and we stopped almost all enemy attacks. We conceded a goal and we did not despair, we managed to reverse the score. Our selection is gaining respect."
Miranda will now be looking to grab a permanent spot in Dunga's first XI as Brazil continue their winning strek since the World Cup.
