France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris hopes an early goal will help his side overcome Georgia in their World Cup qualifier on Friday.
The Tottenham man realises his side approach the match as favourites, but insists Temuri Ketsbaia’s men should not be underestimated.
“On paper, we are the favourites to win this game, but we will have to confirm our status on the pitch,” Lloris told RMC.
“It would be a huge help if we score an early goal. They will keep a lot of men behind the ball and stay organised.
“This match is a must-win for France. It will not be easy, but we are wary.”
France sit joint first in Group I with seven points from three games, with Georgia in third.
