Merci Lloris!

Football can be cruel.

Captain Hugo Lloris gave 100% for his team and country in the Euro 2016 tournament. He was one of the main reason France had reached the final… only to fall to Portugal. His disappointment and heartbreak cannot be summed up. To play at home in front of your people and lost is extremely hard to take, but Les Bleus should hold their heads up in triumph. Just for bringing hope, joy, and smiles to millions of French people, this was already victorious. 

Only time will tell of this excellent goalie will eventually win a final. 

Merci Lloris.

“I won’t name him captain because I don’t I want him to equal my record, so I’ll pick someone else.”

After laughing a bit, he told EURO2016.com:

“Of course, I’m only joking. Hugo does a really good job as captain and I’m delighted for him.”

France v Romania - Group A: UEFA Euro 2016

Lloris was first handed the captain armband in November 2010, when France met England in a friendly. Ahead of Euro 2012, Laurent Blanc handed him the role on a permanent basis. I call Lloris the Quiet Leader or the Quiet Man in the Gloves because he exudes a calm authority although I saw him get angry once at Lyon. He doesn’t need to shout to get his point across…
