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.

Lloris will be unable to feature for France against Iceland on Friday and Turkey the following Monday. 

Lille's Maignan will take his place with the 24-year-old aiming to win his first cap having been an unused substitute for France's past five fixtures. 

He joins goalkeepers Alphonse Areola and Steve Mandanda in the squad.
