The French national soccer player Paul Pogba does not want to overestimate the implied bite of Germany's Antonio Rüdiger in the European Championship game on Tuesday evening.

"He's a friend of mine.

That was on the pitch, we clashed for a moment.

It's over now, it's a thing of the past, "said the midfielder after the world champion's 1-0 (1-0) success against the German team in the first group game in Munich.

“I'm not one to shout for a card.

I think he bit me a little, that's friendly, we know each other well. "

TV pictures showed how Champions League winner Rüdiger from Chelsea FC presses his opponent Pogba from behind shortly before the end of the first half and seems to nibble at his back with a kind of bite movement.

"I felt that, I told the referee that, and he'll make his decision," Pogba said.

“He didn't get a card, so much the better for everyone.

I don't want him to be banned from doing this.

We hugged at the end. "
