We showed great mentality - Hugo Lloris

France captained Hugo Lloris has expressed his happiness over how he and his teammates played against Germany yesterday.

Many would have thought France would lose the game against Germany yesterday as they conceded an early goal in the first half of the game.

Didier Deschamps' however came out strong in the second half of the game and seal a 2:1 win over Joachim Low side. The two goals were scored by Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezman.

Lloris has now praised France mentality and reveals he was happy with the way they took the game.

'We have a lot of talented players in our squad but the main thing, as you could see in the first half, [is that] if you don't respect the basics in football, you make life very complicated,' Lloris said

'At this level, all of the teams are very excited and very motivated to face France, because we are the last World Cup winners.'

'As soon as we increased our level of intensity, we showed great character and great mentality to come back in the game. Without that, it's not all about tactics. It's about basics and we had a lack of that in the first half.'

'We changed all that in the second half and, with our talented players, the team is strong. The talented players, the team is strong. The talented players make things easier for the team. It's a great result for France.'
