With not always nice, but successful football, France made it into the World Cup final. The merits of Ballon d'Or winner Karim Benzema were not at all dependent. However, the Real striker apparently wants to be in the stadium if Les Bleus are defending their 2018 title.
There are many different opinions regarding Karim Benzema in the France national team shirt. The grandiose striker is said not to be particularly popular among the team, which is why his departure due to injury is said to have been quite positively received by many players. Some experts even mentioned the word "salvation" during the World Cup days. According to the Spanish sports newspaper El Mundo, the attacker now wants to fly to Qatar to be present at the World Cup final against Argentina. He should already have permission from his employer.
However, it is still unclear whether Benzema will only be in the stadium or will also be part of the ceremony. France coach Didier Deschamps finally decided not to nominate the real star, which is why he would be entitled to be honored as world champion. That would be a bit strange, but for now we have to wait and see whether Les Bleus win the world title at all. Should Argentina have the better end for themselves, there is a 99 percent chance that Benzema will not appear in the interior. In general, the stage should also belong to the players who actively took part in the World Cup - no matter how bitter an injury may be beforehand.
