Breaking : French Captain Hugo Lloris retires from International football after World Cup loss



World Cup winner Hugo Lloris retired from playing for France on Monday after a record 145 appearances.


Lloris won the 2018 World Cup and was captain of the squad that lost to Argentina in the final in Qatar last month.


The 36-year-old goalkeeper told L’Equipe newspaper he will focus on his Tottenham club career in the English Premier League.


“I want to continue to perform, to live this sport as I have always done, and maybe this decision will give me more physical freshness with my club,” Lloris said.


“In the next four or five months, with Tottenham, I want to live strong things, to finish in the top 4 of the Premier League, to do something strong in the Champions League, in the FA Cup too.”


France coach Didier Deschamps paid tribute to “a great servant of the French team” and a “remarkable human being” who decided to retire “at the top of his game.”


The end of an Era.
