Benzema reinforces the news of his return to the “roosters” team in the European nations
Real Madrid’s top scorer Karim Benzema confirmed the news of his return to the French national team participating in the European Nations Cup, next month. According to the Spanish newspaper “Marca”, Benzema modified his personal account description on “Twitter”, writing that he is a player in Real Madrid and the French national team. Benzema was content, before that, to put the official account of the royal club only in the description, but today he added the official account of the French national team as well. Benzema has been absent from France in recent years, after he was involved in the case of the blackmail of his colleague Matteo Valbuena in 2015. Many French reports circulated today, Tuesday, that Didier Deschamps, the “roosters” coach, may see a big surprise in the European Championship, by summoning Benzema for the first time in 6 years. Benzema starred remarkably this season with Real Madrid in various competitions, scoring 29 goals and providing 8 assists. On Monday, Benzema was named the best French player abroad by the French Footballers Association, and this is the second time that this player of Algerian origin has been crowned with this award after 2019.
