– Laurens: France shows why it is favorite of Euro 2020

FIFPRO published a press release on Wednesday, “to find out why the Concussion Charter was not applied and subsequently Benjamin Pavard was not withdrawn from the playing field during the Euro 2020 match between France and Germany ”.

However, French sources told ESPN they are following UEFA’s exact concussion protocol. Sources added that although Pavard was groggy on the pitch, he did not pass out and was ready to return to the game.

Speaking after the game, Pavard said: “I took quite a shock. I was a little knocked out for 10 to 15 seconds. After that it was better. “

Pavard had no problems after the game and woke up on Wednesday without any symptoms, according to ESPN sources.

France won the game 1-0 thanks to a goal against their side of Mats Hummels and will face Hungary in Budapest on Saturday in their next match.
