France captain Hugo Lloris on Thursday rubbished the comparisons being made between the team's behaviour at Euro 2012 and the 2010 World Cup finals debacle.
"The two have nothing to do with each other!" said Lloris. "In 2010 we were completely unprofessional, totally out of order.
"At Euro everyone played their hearts out, both in training and in the games themselves," said Lloris, the son of a banker and a lawyer.
The 28-year-old Lyon star told L'Equipe that the incidents involving volatile forward Samir Nasri were unfortunate but should not be used to overplay what was generally a far better experience than the South African catastrophe.
