France challenges Portugal for a League of Nations shock this Sunday. Hugo Lloris took the opportunity to become the 3rd most capped French international in the rich French history, he who was lined up for this big meeting against the Lusitanian selection. The Tottenham goalkeeper thus brings to 117 his number of capes with the Blues, while he found the tricolor cages after having given way to Steve Mandanda during the spanking administered to Ukraine in a friendly manner.

Lloris can aim for first place

After being tied with Marcel Desailly, Lloris is now only 3rd, he who is also the most used goalkeeper in the French selection, ahead of Fabien Barthez. The rampart of the Blues is not very far from the first place. Only Thierry Henry (123) and Lilian Thuram (142) now stand in front of him. A challenge that should not pose a problem for the former Lyonnais, a true model of consistency since his first selection.
