Back to back clean sheets for Lloris as France beat Finland


Last evening, France faced Finland in their last World Club Qualifier and came away with a 3-0 win. Another match I did not get to see unfortunately as it was not broadcast here, but ….

As I said above there, I did not get to watch the match, but I followed it and from what I was reading, Lloris was rarely tested throughout the 90 minutes and had a comfy match.

However, via goal.com, here’s his highlight in this minute:

> 19‘ OOOOOH! I may have spoken too soon there. Ring sends a delightful ball forward to Pukki, who beats the offside trap, and Lloris comes quickly off his line to deny the Celtic striker one-on-one!

That’s two back to back clean sheets for the superb goalie while away on national duty. France will see to the play offs and will play Croatia, Sweden, Portugal or Greece. That will be announced tomorrow God’s willing. In the mean time, enjoy the win and keep rooting for our man!

His thoughts after the match:

“We have two very good results, with nine unanswered goals the lottery last year, we left outsiders were able to doubt the Spaniards, unfortunately not until the end, but it is.. not play much. It was a good run, and it was important to close it. We will wait for the draw before they plan on Dams. should keep that competitive spirit, always wanting win whatever the opponent in front. This is the first big deadline of the season, we hope to have the support of our fans and of course qualify France. “

(The statement was taken from fff.fr and has been automatically translated by Google.)

Hugo Lloris will return in action this weekend in the EPL against Aston Villa.
