PARIS (Reuters) - Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will be out of action with a groin injury for at least a couple of weeks, France head coach Didier Deschamps said on Thursday.

Deschamps said that France captain Lloris had torn a muscle in his groin during the London club's 3-1 win over Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Lloris was therefore left out of the France squad to face Wales in a friendly on Nov. 10 at the Stade de France and against Germany in Cologne four days later.

The 30-year-old will also miss his club's Premier League fixture against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
