The goalkeeper of the France team, Hugo Lloris, is also the captain of Didier Deschamps. In 2018, he was one of the great architects of the final victory of the Blues at the World Cup in Russia. In 2016, we remember that he made a few saves, but he was too short on Eder’s strike, the only goal of the Euro 2016 final against Portugal.
For this Euro, the former Nice is still number 1 in the head of Didier Deschamps. But he has already conceded three goals (in three games) and some things are questionable. If he distinguished himself against Hungary by sending a very long clearance to Kylian Mbappé on the equalizer of Antoine Griezmann, he does not really close his angle on the Hungarian goal.
He is doing very well against Portugal
Against the Mannschaft, he was helped by his teammates, made only one stop and made two small air sorties. However, he missed almost half of his passes (46.7%) and only managed eleven out of 25 deep passes, which is ultimately very little. But where the problems arrived, it was especially on the third meeting, against Portugal, beyond the fact that he did not make an extraordinary save.
Frankly, he did not go far from an exclusion. On a set piece, he comes out a bit anyhow, arrives completely late and sends his elbow in the face of Danilo, KO, who will come out elsewhere at half-time. He failed to stop in stride, the penalty of Cristiano Ronaldo. In the second half, rebelote.
Another penalty, this time successive to a hand from Jules Koundé, and once again he starts on the wrong side. This is also where the bat hurts. The last penalty stopped by Lloris in the French team dates back to October 16, 2012, so nine years ago. In club and selection, he only stopped 15 (out of 102), or 14.7%. It’s not much, especially when you know how much the France team is expected. But fortunately, the third goalkeeper is called Mike Maignan who is a specialist. Perhaps he will soon have something to do with it …
