Hugo Lloris has been replaced in France's squad by Mike Maignan for its upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers after the Tottenham goalkeeper suffered an arm injury on Saturday. 

Tottenham has confirmed that Lloris dislocated his elbow during Saturday's 3-0 defeat at Brighton and Hove Albion after he was assessed at a nearby hospital.

He dropped a Pascal Gross cross – allowing Neal Maupay to bundle in – and landed awkwardly on his left arm.
