France manager Didier Deschamps expects goalkeeper Hugo Lloris (center) to play against Ukraine after missing time for a head injury.

CLAIREFONTAINE, France (AP) - Hugo Lloris will resume full training for France on Tuesday and coach Didier Deschamps expects the goalkeeper to play against Ukraine in the first match of their World Cup playoff on Friday.

Lloris was rested by Tottenham for Sunday's home game against Newcastle, having also sat out Thursday's Europa League win over Sheriff Tiraspol after being knocked unconscious late in last Sunday's match against Everton after his head collided with Romelu Lukaku's knee.

Wayne Diesel, Spurs' head of medical services, said that Lloris wanted to play against Newcastle.

Deschamps said Monday that ''there are no worries with Hugo'' and ''he'll take part in training as normal'' on Tuesday after undergoing some training on his own.
