What seemed like a utopia 10 days ago, today does not look crazy. Karim Benzema could return to the concentration of France and play the Qatar World Cup 2022.
The newspaper AS, citing RMC Sport as an original source, confirmed that the current Ballon d’Or is working to recover from the injury that prevented him from staying in the Middle East with the French team, in order to return to said national team for the rounds finals of the current World Cup.
You have to remember that Karim Benzema He suffered a rectus femoris injury during one of France’s first training sessions on Qatari soil, which immediately made him return to Madrid and theoretically forget about the World Cup.
In the same way, the Real Madrid attacker has not played a full game since October, since he has presented some muscular and knee problems.
On the other hand, the world champion nation never replaced Benzema on its list of 26 called up for Qatar, so the Madrid captain can return whenever he wants. Even if he does not see action in the tournament, the Lyon youth squad would receive a gold medal if his team gets the star again.
It should not be ruled out that Karim Benzema will rejoin the French squad between Thursday and Friday, in order to be available for the direct elimination phase of the World Cup in Qatar.
