Tottenham goalkeeper costs France two goals

Hugo Lloris has given Andre Villas-Boas something to think about after dropping two clangers for France last night.

During a performance that could have cost his country an easy win, Lloris gifted Belarus two easy goals.

The game eventually finished 4-2 to Les Blues but, thanks to Lloris' flappy hands, France were 2-1 down with just half an hour remaining. 

First, Lloris failed to save a soft header following a corner, allowing Egor Filipenko's header to slip under him, giving Belarus the lead.

After Franck Ribery equalised, Lloris no doubt thought he was off the hook. That was until a speculative long shot from Timofei Kalachev slipped through his hands as if they were made from wet paper.

The performance won't be too concerning for Spurs fans, however, as the Frenchman has regularly proved to be a fine performer between the sticks.

The French No.1 made 51 saves in 27 appearances for Spurs in the Premier League last season and has only conceded one so far this season.

Lloris was the standout player in the north London derby defeat to Arsenal, making two excellent, last gasp tackles against Theo Walcott as well as displaying fantastic shot stopping abilities at the Emirates.

No doubt Tottenham fans will be relieved that Lloris has got his rare poor performance out of the way whilst on international duty and not at White Hart Lane. So feel free to laugh at the absolute clangers in the video above.
