Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris featured for France against Portugal in the Euro 2016 final on Sunday evening.
Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour suggested on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (broadcast from 6am, July 11) that Hugo Lloris should have done better on the goal from Eder in extra time on Sunday evening.
Lloris featured for France against Portugal in the Euro 2016 final at Stade de France in Saint-Denis.
The match looked to be heading towards a penalty shootout, as the two sides failed to score in normal time.
However, in the 109th minute of the encounter, Eder scored with a stunning strike from distance to win the game and the 2016 European Championship for Portugal.
Former Arsenal midfielder Parlour believes that Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Lloris should have saved the effort from the Portuguese hero.
“He will be disappointed with that one,” said Parlour on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (broadcast from 6am, July 11) while discussing Lloris.
“Eder, again, he took a chance, he had a good shot from outside the box. You have still got to fancy the goalkeeper to get that. He will be disappointed with that.”
Lloris probably could have done better, but one should not take anything away from Eder’s strike, which was truly stunning.
The Tottenham goalkeeper had a great tournament in his home nation and proved that he is genuinely world class.
In seven matches for France at the Euro 2016 finals this summer, the 29-year-old goalkeeper kept three clean sheets.
Lloris made 1.29 saves per game and 1.80 saves per goal on average in the tournament.
