If the France team missed out on its Euro 2020 from a collective point of view with an elimination in the round of 16 against Switzerland on penalties, Karim Benzema made his comeback to the selection at the occasion of this competition.

Since the Euro, the 34-year-old striker has found the net 8 times in 12 appearances, including 4 goals recorded during the European Nations Championship. KB9 confirmed and scored another double on Saturday, during the great success of Les Blues against Kazakhstan (8-0). In the aftermath of this victory, synonymous with direct qualification for the 2022 World Cup, Hugo Lloris (34) spoke very highly of the Real Madrid striker.

“He has a certain aura on the field, he brings something more to the team We all agree that his return was marked by his performance, by his statistics. He doesn't want to limit himself either.

He is a huge player, what he achieves at Real is not trivial, very few players have had this ability to do so over so many years. He also wants to continue his adventure in selection. A World Cup is a special event. We all want to give ourselves the chance to participate and to win it, ” confided the captain of the France group at a press conference in Clairefontaine. Benzema will necessarily appreciate.
