Neymar reveals chat with AC Milan star Balotelli
The pair shone on the day.
"We were talking about the heat," Neymar told journalists after Brazil beat Italy 4-2 in Salvador.
"He told me it was too hot and he wasn't accustomed to this sort of environment, so I told him he'd better start getting used to the heat.
"He is a good lad and a great player who caused us a lot of problems in defence, but I am happy with what my teammates were able to do in order to stop him scoring."
