One main talking point of the match was the injury to Manchester United attacking midfielder Daniel James who was knocked unconscious and Ryan Giggs suggested he feigned the injury despite being grounded after being squished between the Croatia pair Domagoj Vida and Borna Barisic, who flung themselves at a loose ball that James was trying to head on out to the right flank. The ground fell silent as he laid on the ground and the referee Bjorn Kuipers immediately signalled for medical attention, which James received after almost three minutes.

This was further explained by Ryan Giggs in the post-match interview “Daniel was compos mentis,” Giggs said. “We ran tests at half-time and he passed them. He stayed down, I say about players being smart and he was smart, he stayed down and he was perfectly ok. The physio doctor came over and said that there was no problem. He stayed down, he was a bit streetwise, he told the doctors ‘I’m just not moving, I’m just sitting still. At half-time, he did and passed all of the concussion tests. He was perfectly fine.”
