Starting XI: Brazil vs Argentina, 16 October 2018

Miranda: "I Hope To Be Playing At A High Level As Long As Possible"

Defender Miranda headed in a stoppage-time goal Tuesday to give Brazil a 1-0 win over archrival Argentina in a friendly in Saudi Arabia. But, the Selecao got the victor when Miranda powered his header past the Argentina Keeper from Neymar's whipped corner in the dying moments.

"I'm very happy, first of all to help my team-mates, and scoring against Argentina is exciting and gratifying, ” said Miranda after the game".

There was no time for Argentina to respond as they fell to their first defeat with Scaloni at the helm, leaving Brazil still ideal since the World Cup and now having kept 23 clean sheets in their 30 matches under manager Tite. The match starts at 20:00 on 16 October 2018.

Argentina improved considerably after the break but Brazil still had the better chances, with Romero parrying away a fierce volley from Arthur and Casemiro nearly scoring with seven minutes left only to see his deflected free-kick curl wide.

Paulo Dybala went close with a swerving free-kick for Argentina from just outside the box a minute later and Leandro Paredes watched a long-range effort drift wide early in the second half.

On the other hand, according to the first Samsung Galaxy Note 10 rumors, the device might boast a larger screen than the Note 9. It remains to be seen how many cameras will the company pack into the phone, but expect no less than two.

Argentina improved considerably after the break, but Brazil still had the better chances, with Romero parrying away a fierce volley from Arthur after 70 minutes and Casemiro nearly grabbing the victor with seven minutes left only to see his deflected free kick curl wide.

And as the match entered added time, it felt like a goal from Brazil was still possibly coming.

Who do you think will win this match?

This will be Luis Scaloni's toughest test yet since taking over as Argentina's caretaker boss, and the manager will be without Messi, who has not featured for his country since the tournament in Russian Federation.
