Despite being out of form, Lloris believes no one can criticize Griezmann.

Hugo Lloris

has come up with full support for fellow countryman

Antoine Griezmann

. The french striker who has not found the net yet this season is under lots of pressure. Despite his bad form, Lloris believes Griezmann is a very valuable player to French squad.

Griezmann

has not had his best time at Barcelona. Last time he scored was against

Villarreal

back in july. 

Griezmann

played as the 10 number position behind

Giroud

and

Mbappe

. He only created two chances for the high quality strikers playing in front of him. Despite lack of creativity, He managed 55 passes at the opposition's half and recovered the ball 11 times. Lloris says:

"You can't question a player like

Antoine Griezmann

because of all he has done and all he has brought to

France

in recent years," the

Tottenham

goalkeeper told reporters on Tuesday.

"All players have ups and downs. There are times when you succeed more than others. He is currently going through a slightly complicated period in attack, but above all, I see a player who is ready to defend and make the effort for his team-mates. There is no question about that.

"We have to keep our backs to the wall and help him, too. He has our full confidence. We know he has the ability to make the difference in truly important moments for

France

.

"Let's be patient but, in any case, France can only be strong if we are all united and not pointing the finger at any individual player."

Lloris

is looking forward to Wednesday's game at Stadion Maksimir, at which a number of fans will be permitted.

"The presence of supporters is of course good news," he added. "There will inevitably be a bit of hostility but, for the French players, it's a good thing to be able to overcome adversity to win this match.

"That's our goal, in any case. We'll give everything to give the right performance to win."
