France won 3 to 1.

Lloris had a classy performance. That is, when he was seeing enough of the ball. He did not see the ball going well into the 10′. He was but a mere spectator in the opening minutes. When he finally saw the ball, it was in the 14′ and had to make a save from a Belarus FK.

He saved a penalty, but couldn’t do nothing about the loose ball and although he was upset to have lost his clean sheet, he went on pulling off those saves which played part in keeping Team France on top.

His performance was an 8/10 tonight.
