UEFA says it is satisfied by the French federation's medical staff that full-back Benjamin Pavard did not suffer concussion during his country's Euro 2020 match against Germany on Tuesday night.

Pavard said after the match he had been "a little knocked out for 10 or 15 seconds" following a second-half collision with Germany's Robin Gosens.

World players' union FIFPRO demanded answers from UEFA over what it saw as France's failure to follow the tournament organisers' Concussion Charter, while France's handling of the incident was described as "sickening to watch" by Peter McCabe, the chief executive of brain injury charity Headway.

However, a statement from European football's governing body on Thursday read: "UEFA has received detailed information from the French FA medical team on the course of events and is satisfied that the actions taken by the medical team were in line with the concussion protocol.

"According to the reports that we received from the team doctor, it seems that a loss of consciousness did not occur. The team doctor did not find any reason to suspect a concussion either on the pitch or after thorough assessment made by a renowned specialist in this field in later follow-up.

"The player will nevertheless continue to be closely monitored over the coming days."

European soccer's governing body has also responded to Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo's removal of a Coca Cola bottle at a Euro 2020 news conference by telling teams they have contractual obligations towards tournament sponsors.

Ronaldo moved Coca Cola bottles aside as he sat down to speak to the media on the eve of Tuesday's Group F opener against Hungary in Budapest.

The 36-year-old then held up a bottle of water and said "Agua" in Portuguese, making headlines.

A day later, France midfielder Paul Pogba, who is a Muslim, removed a Heineken beer bottle from in front of him after France's 1-0 win over Germany.

"UEFA has reminded participating teams that partnerships are integral to the delivery of the tournament and to ensuring the development of football across Europe, including for youth and women," the tournament organisers said on Thursday.

UEFA's Euro 2020 tournament director Martin Kallen said the main issue had been with Ronaldo's action but there was an understanding of players who did such things for religious reasons.

Kallen told reporters the contractual obligations regarding sponsors was part of the tournament regulations signed up to by the national federations.

UEFA has not taken any disciplinary action over the matter and Kallen said any sanctions would be a matter for federations. UEFA did not intend to directly fine players, he added.
