France made a positive start to their Euro 2020 campaign as Mats Hummel’s first-half own goal sealed a 1-0 victory at the Allianz Arena.

However Antonio Rudiger made a controversy before the break after he was caught biting Pogba when they were together off the ball on the Football pitch.

The Manchester United midfielder complained to Spanish referee Carlos del Cerro Grande, who took no action, while VAR did not appear to review the incident.

However, Pogba is keen for the Chelsea centre-back to avoid punishment.

In terms of Tony, we’re friends. That was nothing big,’ Pogba, who was named man of the match, said after the game.

“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.’
