Lloris proves once again with super save why he’s better than De Gea

For those who may have missed it or were at work, Hugo Lloris pulled off an absolute worldie of a save during France’s 2-0 World Cup quarter-final against Uruguay, yesterday.

With the score at 1-0 and just minutes before half time, Uruguay had a free-kick which was whipped into the penalty area and onto the head of Carceres, only for the French captain to superbly dive outstretched to his right to palm the ball away from the bottom corner.

We all know that Hugo has been guilty of the odd mistake in a Spurs shirt, but some fans are quick to forget that this absolute world class player has stuck with us through thick and thin. He joined us in August 2012 and had to endure three seasons of Europa League football when he could easily walk into any side in Europe.

While the Manchester United fans proclaim that David de Gea is the best keeper in the league, the Spaniard hardly made a save in their embarrassing World Cup display. Hugo is easily number one.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I’m a huge Spurs fan and even I know that’s BS. De Gea is streets ahead of anyone else. If it wasn’t for him Utd would’ve been in Europa. Go look for his XG stats from last season. Only thing in Hugo’s favour is his feet, and only just.

  2. Lloris is massively underrated. And no one else can play the sweeper – keeper role as well as him. Couldn’t care less what rival fans think, for me, he is the best in the league, but keeping him under the radar works for me :)

  3. Comment:Lmao, haven’t read so much BS all my life, but that’s Spurs fans for you? ‘Could easily walk into any side in Europe’, ‘better than De Gea’, lol. So much insanity in one article
