Following the game, the Latvian player stated that it was not his intention as he thought it was an opposing player holding him and apoligize to the ref multiple times.

"I thought the Pole was holding onto my shirt. I tried to get free. Unfortunately, there was the official. I apologised a thousand times, and even after the match."

"I hope they can see that was not my intention."
