Matuidi apologises to Lazio's Onazi after horror challenge

PSG midfielder Blaise Matuidi admits he apologised to Lazio's Ogenyi Onazi after their clash during France's World Cup win over Nigeria.

Onazi suffered a leg fracture as he came off second best in the challenge.

"I'm sorry," Matuidi said to L'Equipe. "I've not gone in to hurt him; I'm disappointed because I'm not a dirty player.

"I went into the (Nigeria) dressing room afterwards to apologise."
