Video: Danilo Pereira Takes Fist to the Head in Collision With France’s Hugo Lloris

The UEFA Euro 2020 group fixture between Portugal and France sees three Paris Saint-Germain players on the pitch in Danilo Pereira, Kylian Mbappé, and Presnel Kimpembe.

Pereira was the first to help his squad, although it came at a painful cost. As Portugal put the ball into the box off a free-kick set-piece, Pereira would go for the header. I

Instead of contacting the ball with his head, Pereira would receive a fist from France national team goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who tried to punch the ball out of danger.

As a result, Portugal would receive a penalty kick following the foul on Pereira by Lloris.
