France Vs Belgium: Olivier Giroud Reveals Why Hugo Lloris Is Better Than Thibaut Courtois

France Striker, Olivier Giroud has claimed that Tottenham Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is better than Chelsea Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois ahead of their semi-final match against Belgium.


Giroud moved to Chelsea in the January transfer window from rivals Arsenal amid demands of more playing time under ex coach Arsene Wenger.


On Tuesday, France will face Belgium in the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup for a place in the final.


Giroud has insisted that both are "Great Goalkeepers" but he believes Lloris is just better than Courtois.


"They have the same right foot. They don't use it much," Giroud joked to reporters.


"Thibaut has an impressive wingspan.It's hard to beat him on the sides. He can stop balls in any area.


"I have scored a few goals against him in training with Chelsea and I hope I can do it on Tuesday.


"They're both great keepers. And they both deserve to be elected as best keeper of the tournament, even if I have a preference for Hugo. The best is Hugo. Sorry, Thibaut."


Oliver Giroud has played over 380 minutes in France's current World Cup campaign but is yet to score.
