Karim Benzema was not part of France’s squad for the World Cup in Qatar last year.

The whole situation was quite suspicious about Karim Benzema and his injury the day before the start of the World Cup, and now a French journalist claims something else.

The journalist of RMC Sport, Daniel Rollo, claims that the situation was clear, Deschamps did not want Benzema at all for the World Cup in the lineup.

“Benzema had a minor injury before the World Cup, but he knew his body, he knew he would heal the injury soon. Deschamps forced Benzema in the last training sessions, they assumed he would renew the injury, he refused to force before the World Cup, but in the end he had to do it.”

“Benzema could play in the round of 16 without a problem, but they didn’t let him. Benzema deserved more respect, was treated like an idiot and kicked out of the national team. “Obviously Deschamps knew he would face more egos in the team if Benzema came back, that’s why they didn’t bring him back,” Riolo said.
