Karim Benzema does not appear in the World Cup final.
Global media ‘ESPN’ said on the 17th (Korean time), “Benzema rejected French President Emmanuel Macron’s invitation to the World Cup finals. He was given the opportunity to travel to Doha, Qatar, along with other injured players, by presidential plane, but in the end It was not accepted.”
Benzema was injured while playing for his club, Real Madrid, last October. Then he took some risks and joined the French national team. But his condition was not good. 안전놀이터 Benzema felt the odds after just 15 minutes of training for his national team. And it wasn’t long before the news of the non-participation was announced. The French Football Federation (FFF) officially announced that “Benzema has given up participating in the World Cup in Qatar. As a result of the examination, Benzema needs a recovery period of about three weeks.”
France managed to advance to the final without Benzema. Olivier Giroud, who replaced the position, played a big role. Giroud perfectly filled the void by scoring 4 goals in 5 appearances. In addition, ‘Ace’ Kylian Mbafe showed off his firepower by adding a big success.
In the meantime, Benzema’s recovery period, which was predicted, was over. Benzema improved his form by playing in a friendly match against Leganes. At the same time, attention was paid to Benzema’s progress, such as whether to participate in the final.
First of all, Benzema is unlikely to make it to the final. He hasn’t headed to Qatar yet, so there’s no way he’ll suddenly be on the list.
The only thing left was to watch the spectators, but even this is not easy. Previously, multiple media such as Spain’s ‘Marca’ announced, “French President Macron wants to invite Benzema, N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba to the final.” However, according to ‘ESPN’ reports, Benzema has decided not to go.
The media explained, “Benzema will not go to Qatar. Instead, Kante, Pogba, Presnel Kimpembe and Christopher Nkunku will travel. They will watch the final with President Macron.”
On the other hand, on the 17th, Benzema also left a message saying “I’m not interested” along with a picture of himself with a shaggy beard on his personal SNS. This means that we will no longer see Benzema in the final.
