Lloris texted Harry Kane after France beat England

France captain Hugo Lloris says “it was not easy to find the words” when he texted Tottenham team-mate Harry Kane after his side had knocked England out of the World Cup in Qatar.

Three Lions skipper Kane missed a penalty against goalkeeper Lloris during France’s 2-1 win on Saturday.

They will reunite as team-mates on 26 December, when Spurs face Brentford in the Premier League.

“It’s a difficult time for the England national team and Harry,” said Lloris.

“We had a text after the game. It was not easy to find the words. He needed some time to rest.

“I think he can be proud of what he has done for the national team.

“In football history, many top players have missed penalties in their career – Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo – but I have no doubt Harry will keep his chin up and help Tottenham and the national team to shine.”

Lloris’ France play Morocco in the World Cup semi-finals on Wednesday as they continue their defence of the title they won four years ago in Russia.
