Hugo Lloris has claimed that France should avoid excuses after their dramatic penalty defeat by Switzerland.
The French and Tottenham captain, who himself had saved a penalty in normal time, watched on as Kylian Mbappe’s missed spot kick saw the European Championship favourites knocked out prematurely.
And Lloris refused to blame the PSG star, who failed to scale his usual standards throughout the tournament, and claimed the squad did not do enough collectively to progress.
“We win together, we lose together,” Lloris said. “We are all responsible for being eliminated at this stage of the competition. There is no pointing fingers. We had to deal with injuries, but we have no right to make excuses.
“We gave everything, we left it all out on the pitch. Penalties are a lottery. We did not have the luck. We will now need to manage the pain. At 3-1 we should have been able to close the match out.”
