While congratulating Argentina on their triumph, Thiago Silva also had a message for the Selecao's critics.
He posted to social media: “The faith to never give up, the strength to endure difficulties and the focus to achieve your goals. Congratulations to our rival for the victory!
"Now is the time to recharge the batteries and come back stronger. For those who supported us and suffered with us here is my thank you!! God bless you.
"Ahhh and for those who were against us, I hope you are happy!!! But don't come and play friends to get anything (interviews, tickets to take kids and friends to matches, shirts or photos)."
