The champion French national team remains without the world’s best footballer Benzema before the World Cup / Article

Benzema injured his thigh in training, and the French national team admitted that his participation in the World Cup tournament will not be possible. In the magnetic resonance examination, the attacker was diagnosed with a muscle injury, which will take three weeks to heal. Benzema helped Real Madrid win the Champions League and the Spanish Championship last season.

“The whole team sympathizes with Karim’s grief and wishes him a speedy recovery,” said the French national team.

The French national team’s first match in the group of the final tournament is scheduled for November 22 against Australia, but later it is also planned to meet with the national teams of Denmark and Tunisia. The head coach of the French national team, Didier Deschamps, must choose a replacement for the 34-year-old Benzema, who has scored 37 goals in 97 games for the national team, no later than Monday.

Benzema’s injury is yet another blow to an injury-hit France squad that is also without midfielders Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante. On the other hand, the defender Raphael Varane went to Qatar, but he missed the last five games in the English club “Manchester United” due to injury. Striker Christopher Nkunku was also injured in training on Wednesday, who will be replaced by Randal Kolo Muani in the final tournament.

The final tournament of the World Cup will be opened on Sunday by the national team match between Qatar and Ecuador. The champions will be announced in the final game on December 18.
