World Cup Benzema to return to France squad. Karim Benzema may unexpectedly re-join the France team for the 2022 World Cup.
Initially, the 34-year-injury old’s had caused him to be ruled out.
Due to a thigh issue, Benzema was anticipated to miss the entire competition.
Didier Deschamps, the head coach of France, decided without calling in a substitute and kept Kylian Mbappe, Olivier Giroud, Ousmane Dembele, Antoine Griezmann, Kingsley Coman, and Marcus Thuram on the field.
RMC Sport asserts that Benzema may still play for France this week as he resumes full training at Real Madrid.
Benzema could be healthy enough to compete in the World Cup knockout rounds.
FIFA regulations allow players who were previously selected for the tournament team before being ruled out to rejoin their squads if they recover from injuries.
