Analysts and fans have been considering the chances of Karim Benzema making a return to the France World Cup squad ahead of their FIFA World Cup final match against Argentina on Sunday.
Benzema who caught a thigh injury during training with his team in camp ahead of the world cup tournament was placed on three-week recovery which made it impossible for him to start the game with the french squard as earlier planned by Decshcamps, the team’s manager.
Having left Doha on account of his injury Benzema moved to Madrid for his recovery, after which his name was dropped from the FIFA World Cup.
In news article by Vanguard, it stated the latest Ballon d’Or winner is now back in training for his club side and Mundo Deportivo reports that he could be brought back ahead of the weekend’s game against Argentina.
According to the Vanguard, the paper claims that Real Madrid are happy to let the striker go back to Qatar and the decision now rests with Deschamps who has been able to mobilize a very strong and formidable team so far in the tournament despite challenges he had earlier encountered.
When asked about the possibility after defeating Morocco, France’s manager Deschamps did not respond directly and only said, “I’d like to proceed to the next question”.
Benzema has 37 goals in 97 caps for France and was Les Bleus’ top scorer at the 2014 World Cup, the vanguard reported.
