Hugo Lloris has shown his class for France once more, as the seasoned goalkeeper managed to save his net when Les Bleus seemed to be ready to admit the first goal of the UEFA Euro 2016.
Minutes after the game had begun, Romania took a corner kick that the French defense wasn't able to clear from its box. As the ball got near the far post, Andone struck the ball with his left foot, prompting Lloris' timely save just when fans at Stade de France feared the worse.
WATCH: Lloris keeps a clean sheet by denying Andone's shot.
