Francisco Ernami Lima de Silva, better known as Mirandinha (born 2 July 1959 in Brasilia), is a Brazilian former professional football player.

Mirandinha is most notable for being the first Brazilian to play for an English football team, when he signed for Newcastle United in 1987, after he scored a goal for Brazil against England in the 1987 Rous Cup. The move cost Newcastle £575,000. His time at Newcastle was a mixed bag of spectacular goals, injury and charges of selfish play. The forward was one of 11 children and worked down a salt mine before football came along. In 2001, he was Rio Negro's manager. In that year, he won the Campeonato Amazonense.

He also won four caps for the Brazilian national team, all in May 1987, scoring one goal against England.[1]

In 2006, Mirandinha was the manager of the Brazilian team Centro Esportivo Nova Esperança.

Mirandinha currently works as a scout in Brazil for Newcastle United.
