The starting goalkeeper of the national football team of France and the captain of the squad Hugo Lloris stated that he is extremely motivated for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. According to him, the French national team does not have all kind of advantages, but the team surely has an extremely strong squad. Lloris believes that teams like Spain and Germany prefer to hold the ball and to control the possession of the ball while the strength of France is in the counter-attacks and the amazing speed which most of the players have.

Hugo Lloris also believes that France should be ready for hard periods during the tournament in Russia. He also thinks that the team must go step by step and not directly dream about the final. The first task in front of France is to win its group games against Australia, Peru and Denmark. According to Hugo Lloris those games in the group will not be as easy as everyone expects and for this reason, he and his teammates must be extremely motivated and concentrated. The first game of France at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia will be on June 16th when Lloris and France will face the team of Australia.
