Karim Benzema retired

Benzema, who was injured a day before the World Cup in Qatar, was knocked out of the tournament. However, coach Didier Desham did not exclude him from the 26-member squad for the World Cup at that time. Then came the news of his conflict with the coach.

The 35-year-old striker announced his retirement from international football less than 24 hours after France lost the title to Argentina in the final. He chose his 35th birthday to announce his retirement.

The Ballon d’Or winning striker Karim Benzema announced his decision on his official Twitter account on Monday (December 19). He writes, ‘I have tried and failed, it has led me to where I am today, and am so proud of it. I wrote my story and our last.

Fabrizio Romano, a renowned sports journalist and reliable source of transfer news, also confirmed Benzema’s retirement. The Italian said the 34-year-old Real Madrid star has already informed his team of his decision and has left the France team.

Earlier, after the victory in the semi-final, French President Emmanuel Macron said that all those who were dropped from the World Cup team due to injury should be present in Qatar for the final. He also invited the players to that. However, Benzema rejected the French President’s invitation.

Benzema made his international debut in 2007. He played at the European Championship in 2008 and 2012 and at the 2014 World Cup but was omitted from the next two major tournament squads over a blackmail scandal.

He was recalled last year for Euro 2020, where Didier Deschamps’s side lost in the last 16, and helped France win the Nations League in October 2021.

Benzema enjoyed a stellar campaign with Real Madrid last season, scoring 44 goals in 46 games as he inspired them to a La Liga and Champions League double.

Since his return to the international team, Benzema had scored 10 goals in 16 appearances.
