Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been named in the top ten players in his position in the world, according to an assessment by the prestigious International Federation of Football History and Statistics.

IFFHS have included Lloris as the seventh best goalkeeper in the world today, with Bayern Munich star Manuel Neuer named as the top in the stopper position.
The France international stopper has recently signed a new extended contract at White Hart Lane, much to the delight of the Tottenham supporters.
Lloris regularly makes outstanding saves for Spurs and is a key member of Mauricio Pochettino’s Premier League title-chasing side.
The former Lyon man also is first-choice custodian for the France national side and starred in his team’s rise to the Euro 2016 final over the summer.
The only other Premier League goalkeeper included in the IFFHS list was Manchester United’s David De Gea, who placed fifth.
