"I have a bit of pain right now, but that will go away again in a bit," Neymar told reporters after the game.
"I saw a video of players trying to taunt me and showed it to Thiago Silva. I usually don't react to any provocations. These bad tackles are actually a good thing and motivate me and my team-mates."
The 21-year-old then went on to voice his satisfaction with Brazil's performance against Portugal.
