Karim Benzema is back. Six years after his last match with the French national team, the Real Madrid striker landed this morning at Clairefontaine to join the Les Bleus rally. Under a dozen fans, Benzema has been one of the most acclaimed players on his return to a Deschamps list.
“Welcome back, Benzeback” was one of the banners that could be seen today in Yvelines after the return of Karim Benzema. His last match with France was in October 2015 against Armenia, in a game in which he was precisely the big star after scoring two goals.
One of the images that generate the most expected to the French amateur today is Karim Benzema for the first time with Kylian Mbappé. The PSG star has already recorded on social media that he is eager to play with the former Lyon player. The duo that both will form at The Euro anticipates as one of the most spectacular of recent years.
