One of the greatest goalkeepers in the world and also a French captain Hugo Lloris can easily beat any opponent’s forward. So, he is the main goalkeeper for the French national side. But Lloris has a big injury. So there is doubt whether he can play in Qatar. As a football fan, I am hopeful that he will play.

Mike Maignan and Alphonse Areola are the other goalkeepers in the 2022 World Cup squad. AC Milan’s young goalkeeper Mike Maignan Going through the good form now. So if Lloris does not play, he will man the goalpost for the French national team.
