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."
