French striker Karim Benzema assessed the fact that he will have to miss the World Cup starting today, November 20, in Qatar. As previously reported, the 34-year-old striker in the camp of the national team suffered a hip injury and was out of the game for a long time.
“I never gave up in my life, but today I have to think about the team as always, so my mind tells me to leave my place to someone who can help our group to have a good World Cup. Thank you for all your messages of support,” Benzema tweeted.
The French national team in the group stage of the 2022 World Cup will play with the teams of Australia, Denmark and Tunisia. Didier Deschamps’ wards will play their first match on November 22 with the Australians.
