France captain Hugo Lloris has expressed his disappointment losing the 2022 World Cup final to Argentina on Sunday.
Lloris described the loss as painful and wished it was his country that came out victorious.
France star Kylian Mbappe scored a hat trick, won the Golden Boot and yet still finished on the losing side as Lionel Messi helped Argentina win on penalties.
France captain Lloris said: “There were a lot of great players on the pitch. Messi and Mbappe are very special and were top tonight, top, top players for the team.
“It’s hard when you lose and you cannot find the right words because it’s too painful. But we gave it our best shot from the start to the end of this tournament and we should be proud of that.
“We were too passive in the first half, we let them do too much damage but twice we came back, showed spirit and great energy to come back.
“We had two big chances even at 119 minutes before extra time and then it’s even more painful to lose.”
