“Footballers generally know what sort of questions they’ll have to field the day before a match, though I certainly took Gladiator fan Hugo Lloris by surprise by asking him about the film’s star, Russell Crowe, throwing his weight behind Iceland in a tweet.

Lloris laughed and then said: “What Iceland have done is extraordinary.”

L’Equipe claims other French players are fans of the 2000 blockbuster, such as Olivier Giroud, Blaise Matuidi and Bacary Sagna. According to today’s edition, forward André-Pierre Gignac watches the Ridley Scott epic before each big match he plays.” [X]
