Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has announced his retirement from international football.

The Tottenham Hotspur star enjoyed a glittering career for Les Bleus. He was the captain of the team that won the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Lloris also wore the armband for Didier Deschamps’ side, who finished runner-up at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar last month. However, defeat to Argentina would be Lloris’ last dance on the international stage.

The 36-year-old leaves behind an immense legacy. He represented Les Bleus 145 times since making his debut in 2008.

He kept 53 clean sheets in his 13,089-minute-long international career.

Hugo Lloris is also the most capped player in the history of French football. A reliable servant of the national team, Lloris has been pivotal in Les Bleus’ success over the last decade. His rock-solid performances between the sticks gave France a huge boost.
