UEFA Euro 2020 is just around the corner, and football fans across the world are getting ready for one of the biggest tournaments in world football.

France's star-studded squad will be led by captain and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who will be coming to Euro 2020 on the back of a poor campaign for Tottenham Hotspur.

Lloris has been an excellent player for Spurs since his arrival from Lyon in 2012 for £11.3 million. An athletic goalkeeper, the 34-year old has been criticized after committing major errors in recent seasons for both club and country, but in general, Lloris still remains a trustworthy shot-stopper.

The former Nice man made 38 appearances in the Premier League this season, keeping 12 clean sheets as Tottenham Hotspur finished seventh. It is hard to envisage Lloris not starting every game for France at Euro 2020. With 123 caps for the France senior side, he is also one of the most experienced players in the squad.


Other options: Steve Mandanda (Marseille), Mike Maignan (Lille)
