France team: Hugo Lloris retires from international football

Goalkeeper and captain of the French team Hugo Lloris announced on Monday that he is retiring from international football.

He is eliminated with the French team. World champion with the Blues in 2018, Hugo Lloris (145 selections), told L’Equipe newspaper this Monday that he will be retiring internationally.

“It’s not easy to say that, but after fourteen years of defending this shirt, which I’ve worn with great joy, pride, duty and responsibility, I think I’ve finally arrived,” said the 36-year-old bouncer , finalist of the 2022 World Cup three weeks ago in Qatar.

Appointed captain by Laurent Blanc after the Knysna fiasco in November 2010, he remained at the helm for fourteen and a half seasons, with notable saves that will not erase the few balls inherent in this so exposed position. The Spurs goalkeeper took part in seven major tournaments with the Blues, with three finals: those lost at Euro 2016 and the 2022 World Cup and the one won in Russia, the second French star twenty years later, that of the Band of Didier Deschamps and Zinédine was won Zidane.

He will now continue his career at his club Tottenham.
