The football game of the year is played and the new world champion Hugo Lloris glees about his well-deserved title. Football fans all over the world followed the finals between France and Croatia in Moscow and cheered or grieved at the end. The sporting goods manufacturer uhlsport would have greeted any winner with enthusiasm because the goalkeepers of both national leagues were wearing gloves from the current uhlsport AERORED Collection.
"For us it was the perfect constellation having two top goalkeepers equipped by us and standing opposite each other with their teams in the World Cup finals," uhlsport Director Melanie Steinhilber says. "Each of us crossed the fingers of one hand for Hugo Lloris and the fingers of the other for Danijel Subasić. Even though only one could hold the World Cup trophy in their hands in the end, for us both were absolute World Cup heroes."
While France's national team was included in many experts' group of favourites before the world championship, Croatia's entry into the finals was surprising for many. Both leagues shone with excellent team performance in Russia, and with their parades the two goalkeepers added a significant proportion to the exceptionally positive tournament development.
Being their most important working equipment, Hugo Lloris and Danijel Subasić trust the goalkeeper gloves by uhlsport. Thanks to their patented foams and innovative cuts these gloves are some of the best in the world since decades.
