Francisco Ernandi Lima da Silva, better known as Mirandinha (born 2 July 1959 in Brasilia), is a Brazilian former professional footballer who played as a striker.

Mirandinha won four caps for the Brazilian national team, all in 1987, with his only international goal coming against England.[1]

He had unsuccessful early spells at Ceará and Fortaleza, before finding some success at the 'third club' in Fortaleza city, Ferroviário. He then moved to play for Ponte Preta.[2]

As of 1981 he was playing for Botafogo in the Taça de Ouro.[3]

He signed for Newcastle United in 1987 for £575,000, thus becoming the first Brazilian to play in English football.[4] He left Newcastle in 1989, returning to his former club Palmeiras.[5]

In 1991, he moved from Palmeiras to join Belenenses, although he was only there for a short time,[6] playing three Portuguese League matches.[7] By late February he was playing for Corinthians, and he scored two goals for them in the 1991 Copa Libertadores.[8]

After leaving Corinthians he played for Fortaleza, and he then had spells in Japan with Shimizu S-Pulse and Shonan Bellmare.[9]

As of July 2013 he was a director at Maguary, who were playing in the third division of the Campeonato Cearense.[10]
