France let Pavard play on after he was ‘a little knocked out’

Benjamin Pavard confirmed he was rendered unconscious during France’s Euro 2020 victory over Germany.

Pavard was involved in a collision with Robin Gosens in the second half of the 1-0 win for Les Bleus, which is to say that Germany defender Gosens launched his hip into the right-back’s head and managed to avoid even a caution.

After a short stoppage Pavard was deemed fit to continue and completed the match for .

The 25-year-old confirmed after the game that he had been been “a little knocked out” but the decision to allow him to play on was widely criticised over concussion concerns.

“I took a hell of a shock,” he told beIN Sports. “I was a little knocked out for 10 to 15 seconds. After that, it was better.

“It’s true that we came across a good team from Germany, which had possession, but we had a very good game defensively and offensively, and we were united.

“We feel good. Physically, we will gain even more power. It bodes well for the future.

“We defended well collectively. It’s a more than positive game. It’s special to win against the Germans. We knew that this first game was important. Now, we will quickly recover because there is the second match which will come quickly in Hungary.”

UEFA introduced that all 24 competing teams at Euro 2020 partook in ahead of the tournament, including ‘a specific concussion management webinar with the team doctors’ to update them on ‘the latest guidance and information available on concussion management’.

The charter, signed by each nation, states: “As the General Secretary, Head Coach and Team Doctor of the national team selection, we fully support UEFA’s guidance on how to recognise a concussion and how it should be managed from the time of injury through safe return to football.

“We confirm that if a player of our team is suspected of having suffered a concussion, he will be immediately removed from the pitch, whether in training or match play.”

Yeah.

UEFA approved the trial of concussion substitutes during the U21 Euros this summer but opted against bringing them in for the senior tournament, while have committed to trialling the measure at club level.

Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema had goals ruled out for offside in the second half but it mattered little in the end as the world champions took a precious three precious points at the Allianz Arena.

With , it already leaves Germany with plenty of work to do to qualify for the knockout stages.

Man Utd midfielder Pogba was named man of the match against the Germans and was involved in the weirdest incident of the game as Chelsea star Rudiger nibbled his back.

Reacting to the incident, Pogba told reporters: “In terms of Tony, we’re friends. There was nothing big.

“I think you saw the television pictures, this is all over, this belongs to the past, I’m not crying for yellow or red cards because of such actions.

“He nibbled, I think, a little bit on me, but we’ve known each other for a long time.

“I felt it, I told the referee, he takes the decisions and he took a decision. It’s over, I just want to play football.

“He hasn’t received any card, I think it’s better like this. It was a great match for us, for the fans, for the spectators. I don’t want him to be suspended because of such a situation. At the end of the match we hugged each other and that’s it.”

Roy Keane gave his thoughts on ITV, he said: “I think it was more of a nibble than a bite. It wasn’t a proper bite but a silly thing to do.”
