France coach Deschamps reveals Spurs keeper Lloris to attend Moldova clash

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris will attend France's clash with Moldova next week.

Lloris is recovering from elbow surgery after a horror injury suffered a fortnight ago at Brighton.

And France coach Didier Deschamps revealed: "As our captain, it's important that he be there.

"I spoke to him before his operation, we exchanged, it was more or less planned. It will not lengthen his unavailability.

"It was necessary to have a very good healing rather than to gamble then having to intervene."
