Interviewed by the magazine Eleven World, Karim Benzema explains how he fought for several years to finally find the France team this summer.
Retained in Didier Deschamps’ list to compete in Euro 2020 with the Blues, Karim Benzema has come a long way. In an interview with the magazine Eleven World, the Real Madrid striker gave his feelings hot before returning to the France team from June 11 to July 11.
“It’s more than being happy. It’s a source of pride, I’ve been waiting for this for a while. I have always worked, I have never given up, never let go. In the end, it’s a reward. Here, super happy, I am in a hurry to be there, to train, to start the matches. It’s a team with such talents, such players, that I too want to play in this team ”, confided Benzema who is already eager to discover his new teammates, in particular the Parisian Kylian Mbappé. “It’s clear, it’s clear, I had a lot of feedback. After that, it can be that easy. It is true that he is a young player, but very, very talented. Me, I like his movements, how he plays football. Now it’s up to us to get along well on the pitch, but anyway, I have no doubts about that. Afterwards, we should not focus on the Mbappé-Benzema duo. There are many very talented players in this team: Griezmann, Giroud, Pogba, Dembélé, Coman, Ben Yedder… The danger can come from anywhere and so much the better for France. “
