Hugo is amazing.

Hugo Lloris is amazing. Playing for and captaining France in the first match of the 2016 European Championships, most people expected that he wouldn’t have a whole lot to do against a Romanian team that isn’t the most highly regarded side in the tournament.

Most people thought wrong. Hugo stopped a point blank shot off of a Romanian corner just a couple of minutes into the match to keep the score 0-0. And it was glorious.

Tottenham Hotspur fans know all about Hugo Lloris and his ability to make amazing reaction stops: they've seen Hugo make these kinds of saves on the regular.

But perhaps a lot of Europe doesn’t know just how good Hugo is. Well, now they do. Thus far, France’s back line has looked a little porous in the early goings of this match. Thankfully, France has Hugo between the sticks to bail them out.

Keep going, Hugo!
