​Tottenham keeper Lloris gives warning to France teammates

Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris has warned his France teammates against complacency in the coming years.

Lloris believes that the current crop of France players can achieve something great if they continue to work hard.

Following an encouraging 3-2 win over England, he said: "We need to improve as a team, because there will be pressure in important games. We need to be able to get possession of the ball better, be stronger and manage the rhythm of the game.

"We have a lot of players who are very unpredictable. In one-versus-one situations they can make the difference. They have the pace to accelerate the game.

"But that's not enough, you have to be to be competitive and have ambition to win trophies.

"It's true that these qualities can help the team, especially in games like that [versus England].

"With 10 men, we knew that up front, with two or three players we could counter attack, and make the difference."
