France have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur captain, Hugo Lloris, has now withdrawn from their international squad due to a thigh injury. 

The Frenchman played between the sticks for Spurs at the weekend, as Conte’s side thrashed Leicester City 6-2 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Lloris was rather busy on the day, coming up with a couple of key saves, as well as saving a penalty – although it was retaken due to the 35-year-old being an inch off his line.

The club captain has started every match for Tottenham this season, although Spurs did sign Fraser Forster on a free transfer in the summer to deputise when needed.

Spurs are without any fixtures until the North London Derby on October 1, and Lloris will be hoping to overcome his thigh injury by then, although the extent of the problem is not mentioned in France’s press release.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Hugo Lloris out for any extended period of time would be a huge blow for Tottenham. He has been so reliable over the past few years and has already come up with some huge saves this season to earn Spurs key points. Fingers crossed it is just a precaution.
