That may well be exactly what Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was thinking when he dived the wrong way and failed to save David Silva's penalty on Tuesday night.

As evidenced by the above clip, Giroud actually points to the side that Silva would go to convert his penalty, with Lloris, who, in fairness, probably wasn't looking at his team-mate's hand at the time, haplessly diving the other way.

Spain would go on to win Tuesday's glamour friendly at the Stade de France 2-0, with Gerard Deulofeu wrapping up the victory in the second half to add to Silva's opener.
