The man from Tottenham hailed by the French media

Hugo Lloris held up the Nations League trophy for France on Sunday night after a 2-1 win over Spain – with GFFN rating the Tottenham star 7/10.

Lloris, 34, came into the game somewhat under fire after some errors in the semi-final against Belgium. France sort of won 3-2.

Despite a miraculous save to keep Kevin De Bruyne out, Lloris then allowed Yannick Carrasco and Romelu Lukaku to score at the near post.

Lille’s Mike Maignan breathes down his neck – but Lloris has reminded everyone why he is between the sticks and certainly, why he is France captain.

Spain took the lead. Mikel Oyarzabal left Lloris out of luck, landing a left-footed shot in the far corner. Karim Benzema equalizes.

A magnificent effort from the Real Madrid superstar equalized the final, before Kylian Mbappe finished beautifully to put France ahead 2-1.

It was in the last moments that Lloris shone. First, a brilliant save to deny Oyarzabal’s volley – before repelling Yeremi Pino’s shot.

GFFN gave it a 7, saying: “Faced with very little shooting until the last moments. Two exceptions were crucial short-distance instinctive stops to stop Spain.

Lloris impresses for France: Tottenham Paratici chief is watching?

Lloris is out of contract at the end of the season – which will see him spend a decade at Spurs. But judging by Sunday, he needs a new deal.

Pierluigi Gollini looks like his home in London, but is he as good as Lloris? Perhaps another 12 months at Spurs should be considered.

At least on Sunday’s show Paratici and Tottenham would be wrong not to hand over £ 12million (Goal) signing a new agreement with Lloris.
