With international break looming, coaches have made their selection and France coach, Didier Deschamps has assured Hugo Lloris’s position as his number 1 choice. Speaking at a presser earlier, he said:
“It doesn’t pose a problem for me. Why wouldn’t he play in both games? Whatever happens, Hugo’s quality is a given.”
Hugo Lloris will play in the friendly against Japan to get him sharpen for the World Cup qualifier against Spain. Good choice, DD. France needs Lloris’s service.
