Man United’s Paul Pogba claims Antonio Rudiger ‘nibbled’ him during Germany vs France

Man United’s Paul Pogba claims Antonio Rudiger ‘nibbled’ him during Germany vs France

France see off Germany

France and Germany faced off on Tuesday evening, in a Euro 2020 Group F clash.

Les Bleus headed into the tie as the favourites. France are the current World Cup holders, and made it to the final of Euro 2016.

Germany, on the other hand, have been experiencing something of a decline in recent years.

And, in the end, it was indeed the favourites who came out on top via an own goal, set in motion courtesy of a brilliant ball from Paul Pogba:

Pogba claims Rudiger nibbled at him during game

Pogba’s super pre-assist was not the only reason the midfielder was in the headlines post-match, though.

This comes with the midfielder garnering a fair bit of attention following an incident involving Germany’s Antonio Rudiger.

During the game, Pogba complained to the referee about what felt like a bite from Rudiger:

No action was taken during the clash, but Pogba spoke out afterwards, and reiterated that the Chelsea defender had ‘nibbled’ him:

“I’m not crying for cards, yellow, red cards because of such actions,” Pogba said.

“He nibbled, I think, a little bit on me. But we have known each other for a long time.

“I told the referee and he takes decisions and he took a decision. It’s over.

“It was a great match for us … and I didn’t want him to be suspended because of such a situation. It was towards the end of the match. We hugged each other and that’s it.”
