Hugo Lloris had his Tottenham Hotspur teammate's sympathies after Euro 2016.

France's Hugo Lloris makes a save

Speaking to the club's official website, Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Michel Vorm has admitted that he felt sorry for team-mate Hugo Lloris following France's Euro 2016 final defeat.

Les Bleus came agonisingly close to winning the competition on home soil but Eder's extra-time winner clinched the title for Portugal in Paris last Sunday night.

The Spurs keeper, like so many of his French compatriots, had enjoyed a fine tournament, and Vorm, his rival at Tottenham, concedes that he sympathised with the 29-year-old.

"And then there’s Hugo – I feel for him after losing the Final but that’s also a learning process," the Dutchman told Tottenham's official website.

“I spoke to him a few hours before the game to wish him all the best but I know that losing in moments like that is the worst feeling. To be fair to him he’s stayed positive and he’s shown professionalism as always."

It's been a difficult last few months for Lloris where football is concerned. The Tottenham number one was in the Spurs side whose Premier League title bid came off the rails in spectacular fashion, with Mauricio Pochettino's men ultimately finishing third - behind Arsenal - after losing 5-1 at Newcastle on the final day of the season.

However, Tottenham fans will hope to do better next term - and they did get Champions League qualification, at least - after signing Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen so far.
