Benzema’s Instagram account
French international striker Karim Benzema sent an impressive message to the French fans, after the surprise elimination of the “Rooster” team from the 16th round of the European Nations Cup “Euro 2020” against Switzerland.France, the world champion, was eliminated from the continental championship after losing to Switzerland on penalties, 4-5.
Benzema said in a post he posted on his account on “Instagram”, yesterday, Sunday: “I moved to see these pictures, I wanted to see our French team at the top, thank you to the fans for always believing in us, and defeats push us to overcome obstacles, and we will come back stronger.”
“I would also like to thank all my team-mates, the staff and all of France for welcoming me back with such kindness,” he added.
It is expected that Benzema, 33, will participate in his last international tournament next year in the World Cup in Qatar, knowing that he was not in the list of the “roosters” that won the World Cup in Russia 2018.
And the coach of the French national team, Didier Deschamps, had summoned Benzema to the ranks of the “Rooster” team, to participate in the current edition of the European Cup, after a long absence that lasted more than five years, due to a case of blackmail with a sexual video against his former colleague in the French team, Matthew Valbuena. .
