Hugo Lloris

BornDecember 26, 1986

Hugo Lloris is a French international footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for English club Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League. He is a French international and is the first-choice national goalkeeper and their first choice captain. He is often described as a goalkeeper who boasts lightning reflexes and good decision-making and is a formidable opponent in one-on-one situations. Lloris began his career with hometown club OGC Nice. He made his debut as a teenager in October 2005 and started in goal during the team's run to the 2006 Coupe de la Ligue Final. After three seasons with the club, Lloris moved to seven-time Ligue 1 champions Olympique Lyonnais. Lloris won several domestic awards in his first season with Lyon and, in his second season, earned award nominations at European level for his performances in the UEFA Champions League, which saw Lyon reach the semi-finals for the first time. Lloris is a French international having represented his nation at under-18, under-19, and under-21 level. Prior to playing at senior level, he played on the under-19 team that won the 2005 European Under-19 Football Championship. He helped France qualify for the 2010 FIFA World Cup and was applauded by the media for his performance over two legs against the Republic of Ireland in the qualifying playoffs. In 2010, he captained the national team for the first time. He is a three-time winner of the National Union of Professional Footballers (UNFP) Ligue 1 Goalkeeper of the Year award.
