Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has accused Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger of 'nibbling' him during a Euro 2020 clash on Tuesday.

World Cup winners France faced off against Germany in a fiercely anticipated group-stage match, which was decided by a Mats Hummels own goal.

Kylian Mbappe was twice on the scoresheet, though both efforts were ruled out for offside, and the narrow result gives the rest of the nations involved in the competition something to fear.

After the match though, there was a lot of discussion around an incident involving Pogba and Rudiger that came towards the end of the first half.

Pictures showed Rudiger moved his mouth very close to Pogba's back before reaching his arms around to the midfielder's chest.

The France man then appeared to suggest to the referee that Rudiger had bitten him, which brings back memories of the two biting incidents involving former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

Pogba confirmed he was 'nibbled' after the match but made it clear he does not want the Germany defender to face any retrospective punishments.

"I'm not crying for cards, yellow, red cards because of such actions. He nibbled, I think, a little bit on me. But we have known each other for a long time," he said.

"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."
