Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud believes his national teammate Hugo Lloris is a better goalkeeper than Chelsea teammate Thibaut Courtois.
Giroud made the statement ahead of France’s semi-final clash with Belgium on Tuesday night.
“Thibaut has an impressive wingspan. It’s hard to beat him on the sides. He can stop balls in any area,” Giroud said.
“I have scored a few goals against him in training with Chelsea and I hope I can do it on Tuesday.
“They’re both great keepers. And they both deserve to be elected as best keeper of the tournament, even if I have a preference for Hugo.
“The best is Hugo. Sorry Thibaut.”
