Ndombele: Lloris injury a blow for Spurs and France

Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele admits Hugo Lloris is tough for club and country.

Lloris faces months out with a dislocated elbow.

Ndombele said of his France teammate: "Did I hear from Lloris? I sent him a message and I got one.

"It does not go very well, it makes sense. His absence will hurt us both with Tottenham or France as he is captain of both teams. It's a loss but players are present and will be able to show what they are capable of.

"We want to get this qualification for him."
