After impressive performances in wins over Belgium and Uruguay, Hugo Lloris will look to produce one more in Sunday’s final
Only one Tottenham Hotspur player will be involved in Sunday’s World Cup final, but Hugo Lloris could become the club’s first captain to lift the trophy.
The France skipper has been inspiration for his country on their way to the final and produced key saves in wins over Belgium and Uruguay.
Heading into the semi-final games, nine players from Spurs were still involved in the competition, but only Lloris has made it through.
Now he will have the chance to become just the second captain from France to lift the World Cup.
