Miranda scores in Brazil victory

Inter defender Joao Miranda scored one of the goals and Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker kept a clean sheet as Brazil beat Russia 3-0.

Today’s friendly promises well for the Seleçao going into the World Cup this summer, but the hosts looked out of their depth.

There were several Serie A figures involved in the game, as Alisson kept a clean sheet for 90 minutes, even though he had precious little to do.

Miranda, on the other hand, opened the scoring before Philippe Coutinho – ex-Inter – and Paulinho added more goals.

Juventus winger Douglas Costa started in Tite’s formation.

Brazil: Alisson; Dani Alves, Thiago Silva, Miranda, Marcelo; Paulinho, Casemiro, Coutinho; Willian, Gabriel Jesus, Douglas Costa
