​EURO2016: Lloris urges France team-mates to take pressure off Payet

France keeper Hugo Lloris has called on his colleagues to take responsibility and relieve some of the pressure from star player Dimitri Payet.

"I think there is a great spirit in this team with the players involved," The Sun quotes him as saying.

"It is not about 11 players, it is about 23.

"We are going to need everyone for this competition.

"Again Payet took responsibility and he knows that he has got all the confidence and we trust him.

"We are very pleased. It was a great feeling to get the victory.

"But it is important to stay focused because we need to secure the top of the group.

"It is a great tournament and the level is high."
