Don Hutchinson stunned with pace of Tottenham star Hugo Lloris

Hugo Lloris

Former Scottish international Don Hutchinson was impressed with Hugo Lloris while watching England take on France.

Former Premier League midfielder Don Hutchinson was impressed with French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris as Les Bleus took on England at Wembley.

The Tottenham Hotspur number one played a prominent role in the emotionally charged friendly, but was beaten from long range by teammate Dele Alli for the game's opener.

Nonetheless Lloris' sharpness drew praise from Hutchinson, formerly of Liverpool and Everton, who took to Twitter to praise the Frenchman.

Lloris' speed helps him close down opposition forwards and make life difficult to score past him, but his quickness mentally is also an attribute which helps his physically prowess, allowing him to make early decisions when to come off his line when he sees danger.

Tottenham signed Lloris to an extended deal until 2019 last year, and will be delighted they have the services of the talented international.

There was nothing he could do about Alli's opening goal, and his Spurs teammate is bound to be reminding him about it at training this coming week.
