After being eliminated from the World Cup… Karim Benzema’s first comment
The star broke his silence after the French Football Federation announced on Saturday that striker Karim Benzema had been excluded from his country’s squad for the World Cup in Qatar after suffering an injury in training.
The famous France international, who is of Algerian origin, commented on the decision via his Instagram account, stressing that he usually never gives up, but this time he had to show the club’s interest first.
He said: “In my life I’ve never given up but tonight I have to think of the team as always, so tell me the reasons to leave my seat for someone who can help our team achieve a wonderful World Cup. Thank you Thanks for all the messages of support.”
While expressing his sadness at what happened, France coach Didier Deschamps said: “I’m very sad for Karim who made the World Cup a great goal for him.”
Despite this renewed blow, he expressed his confidence in the national team and emphasized: “We will do our best to face the great challenge that awaits us.”
This media came after the French FA announced the ban of Karim Benzema from the World Cup via its official Twitter account.
He confirmed that the decision was made after it was confirmed that the player had a muscle injury in his left thigh and because of this it was decided to officially ban him from participating in the World Cup.
Great work will be missed
Notably, the Golden Ball winner, who is suffering from muscle problems, was forced to leave holders France early through injury.
Benzema produced an admirable performance at Real Madrid last season, scoring 44 goals in 46 games in all competitions to help the team achieve the La Liga and Champions League double.
He was also the top scorer for France at the 2014 World Cup, but he wasn’t part of the side’s victory at the 2018 edition, having only returned to the France national team last year after a 6-year absence.
France, already without Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante through injury, as well as Christopher Nkunku, start Group D against Australia on Tuesday.
