Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was omitted from the weekend defeat to Newcastle owing to medical advice from the club's team of doctors, but displayed no ill-effects of his concussion after joining up with his France colleagues.

Lloris was knocked unconscious during the encounter with Everton just over a week ago, but was deemed to have recovered sufficiently to complete the 90 minutes at Goodison Park.

Seven days later, however, and Lloris was left out of the Spurs starting XI following assessments from medical staff, and was not even afforded a place on the bench for the 1-0 loss at White Hart Lane.

Lloris has, though, remained in the France squad for their crucial World Cup playoff against Ukraine starting this week, and showed he is feeling just fine after an impressive display on the training field.

The 26-year-old, who is in his second season with Spurs, ditched the gloves on Monday to take up a position out on pitch in a practice session, and found the net no fewer than four times.

All of the goals may have been tap-ins but, as the likes of Jermain Defoe or Roberto Soldado will tell their club-mate, you have to be there to score them.
