In their updates during Lloris’ 2012 part of the 2011-12 season, here’s what uefa.com had to say about him:
Excelled in two thrilling League Cup ties as Lyon came from behind with 10 men to beat Lille, then reached final with 4-2 win at Lorient.
Enjoyed a quiet game against APOEL in last 16 of the UEFA Champions League but made one fine save as Lyon secured a 1-0 first-leg lead.
Failed to save any penalties in the shootout as APOEL reached the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, but helped OL bounce back with four straight wins.
Won first senior trophy as Lyon beat Quevilly 1-0 in French Cup final, two weeks after losing the League Cup final 1-0 to Marseille.
May – Week one
Conceded a second-half equaliser against Brest as Lyon’s hopes of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League for a 13th year running were finally extinguished.
May – Week two
Milan were linked with a move for Lloris, but the Lyon goalkeeper insisted he had no intention to leave Stade de Gerland this summer.
May – Week three
Lyon’s season ended in disappointing fashion for Lloris who scored an own-goal in 4-3 reverse at home to Nice.
May – Week four
Described as tired by Laurent Blanc, and remained on bench for first warm up game against Iceland as Mandanda was offered a rare start.
Gave a solid performance against Serbia, pulled off three good saves in the second half to help Les Bleus secure a 2-0 win.
Has a big 24 hours coming up with a friendly against Estonia, a flight to Ukraine, and last but not least an interview with UEFA.com.
10.6 – FRA
Looked happy and relaxed in pre-match news conference, flat-batting some tricky questions with his usual self-assurance.
England had just one shot on target, which they scored – Lloris was not at fault.
Had very little to do against Ukraine, but was reliable as ever when called upon.
Warned France against complacency when playing Sweden: “They’re competitors and they’re playing for pride. I’m always wary of teams with nothing to play for.”
Made several excellent saves – including one incredible stop from Mellberg – as France fell to a 2-0 defeat by Sweden.
Called upon rarely, and was not at fault for either goal as France lost 2-0 to Spain in the quarter-finals.
