Lloris pulls off ‘save of the century’ to thwart Madrid

Tottenham earned a surprise 1-1 draw in their Champions League Group H match on Tuesday, largely thanks to an inspired performance from keeper Hugo Lloris.

The Frenchman made a string of superb saves to deny Cristiano Ronaldo as Spurs held on for a draw.

It wasn’t all one way traffic at the Bernabeu though, as Madrid’s Keylor Navas also produced several top-drawer saves to thwart Harry Kane.

Still, it was left to Lloris to make the save of the night, and perhaps the season, as he somehow managed to keep out Karim Benzema’s point-blank header with his foot.

The save certainly impressed his manager.

And quite a few others.

Although some thought that Benzema should have done better!
