Brazil star Neymar is on track to win the following Ballon d’Or, according to team-mate Miranda.
Neymar took his tally to 51 international ambitions in 76 games having a beautiful effort in Thursday’s 4-1 thrashing of Uruguay in World Cup qualifying.
He got around the end of a clearance from Miranda just before delicately lobbing goalkeeper Martin Silva.
When Paulinho stole the show having a hat-trick, Miranda was full of praise for Barcelona star Neymar.
“Nowadays, Neymar is the player who lives in the best moment,” the Inter defender said.
“The subsequent Ballon d’Or is painted for him.”
Neymar was third within the Ballon d’Or in 2015, however the prize has been shared by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo the past nine times.
Brazil’s win over Uruguay saw them move seven points clear in qualifying, effectively on track to reach Russia 2018.
