Hugo Lloris made an amazing QUADRUPLE save last night

The Spurs keeper was like a man possessed in France's game against Iceland

Hugo Lloris went full Neo from the Matrix last night.

The world champions were 1-0 down against a well drilled Iceland team at the time.

Then Lloris pulled off save after save in a ridiculous five-second goalmouth scramble.

The original save may be the best, it was a strong header that looked destined for the net.

Lloris got across quickly and palmed it away, but not out of danger.

How high can Hugo?

The Frenchman couldn’t control the second effort, only able to push it back into the mix.
Two more attempts at poking it over the line by the Icelandics are felled by Lloris.

First his right hand, then finally, his left leg kicks the ball clear.

The Spurs man has not had the best start to the season, with a questionable decision to rush out against Barcelona at Wembley leading to the Spanish club’s opening goal.

He also made a catastrophic error in the World Cup final, although France were 4-1 up at the time.

2-2 was not the best result for the world champions.

Although it could have been a lot worse, at one point 2-0 down and without Lloris possibly further.

Despite his up and down start to the season, both on and off the pitch, saves like last night prove that Spurs’ number one is up there with the very very best.
