With an in-form France having shut out their opponents Honduras in last night’s World Cup group game, there’s reason to believe they could boast the best defensive record out of every other side when this summer’s tournament has come to a close.
Their goalkeeper Hugo Lloris looks sharp between the sticks, and commands his area better than any other in the competition. Against Honduras, France only conceded four shots over the course of 90 minutes, with only one of them having been on target.
France’s form prior to the World Cup – conceding one goal from their last four – gives reason to believe Lloris could be in line to win the World Cup Golden Glove, given to the best ‘keepers of the tournament. If Lloris can add to his one clean sheet amassed already, he’ll definitely be in the running, and 888 Sport are giving odds of 11/1 for the Tottenham man to achieve it.
Lloris has conceded 47 goals from his 60 caps for the France national team, keeping a staggering 37 clean sheets.
