UEFA Contacts France Over Benjamin Pavard Scary Head Injury (See What They Said)
The French Football Federation has been called by Uefa to find out why France’s Benjamin Pavard continued to play against Germany at Euro 2020 despite temporarily losing consciousness.
In the second half of France’s 1-0 victory, the Bayern Munich defender collided with Germany’s Robin Gosens.
Pavard stated, ”
“It hit me like a ton of bricks.
For around 10 to 15 seconds, I was knocked out.
It got better after that.
Uefa is interested in learning more about what transpired and whether protocols were followed.
Prior to Euro 2020, all teams, including physicians, signed a concussion charter that stated, “We confirm that if a player of our team is suspected of having had a concussion, he will be removed from the pitch promptly, whether in training or match play.”
Fifpro, the global players’ union, said it was in contact with Uefa to find out why the concussion charter had not been followed.
Charity for the brain
The way the event was handled was “sickening to witness,” according to Headway, who demanded that Uefa “immediately explain how it was permitted to happen and what measures it will take to guarantee that something similar does not happen in the future.”
