Karim Benzema announces retirement from international duties with France
Karim Benzema has announced across his social media accounts that he will be retiring from international duties with France.
This comes after a World Cup shrouded in controversy, which ultimately led to the Real Madrid player having to leave the training camp due to injury.
Benzema was not able to play a part in this tournament after sustaining an injury before Les Bleus’ first game of the competition, which ultimately forced him to leave the training camp, and leaving him without game time in Qatar.
He continued to play a part in subsequent tournaments, such as the 2010 World Cup, but appearances were blighted by controversies.
Before the 2016 Euros, it was announced that Benzema was not going to play any part in the squad, which was what similarly occured for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Karim made his reappearance into the France squad in 2021 in time for the Euros 2020, which did not have the fairytale ending he had hoped for, as France were knocked out in the last-16 against Switzerland.
All in all, the talisman scored 37 goals in his international career, playing 97 times.
