​EURO 2016: Tottenham keeper Lloris confident hosts France will perform

Hugo Lloris is confident France can deal with the pressure of being hosts at Euro 2016, reports the London Evening Standard.

Les Bleus kick off their campaign against Romania at the Stade de France tomorrow night and the stakes are high for Didier Deschamps' side.

The pressure to perform in front of an expectant home can often prove to be a hindrance but Lloris believes the French public will help to spur his side on.

"It maybe did not help Brazil at the World Cup in 2014 but for us the public are going to be a great support," insisted the Spurs goalkeeper.
