You gotta see Hugo Lloris's incredible save to keep clean sheet vs. Germany

New, comments

Hugo Lloris and France are through to the Euro 2016 final after beating the world champions Germany, 2-0, on Thursday. A brace from Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann will get all the headlines, but it was Lloris who pulled off some amazing saves to put his country through.

The pick of the lot is undoubtedly this incredibly acrobatic save in stoppage time that kept the Germans off the score sheet late in the match as they were piling on the pressure:

Germany threw all caution to the wind after going down by two goals and began their barrage on the French goal. Hugo stood tall even as the France defense started to buckle and allow chance after chance. This particular moment came from a cross into the box that Joshua Kimmich and Thomas Muller battled for. Somehow the ball ricocheted on goal and Lloris made an incredible reaction save to keep the score 2-0.

The Spurs No. 1 had five saves on the night and is one match away from winning Euro 2016. France will take on Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal in the final on Sunday.
