Benzema still spared but no worries for Kazakhstan

While he has not participated in any collective session with the France team since the start of the rally on Monday, Karim Benzema trained separately this Thursday at Clairefontaine. However, the condition of the Real Madrid striker does not give cause for concern for Saturday’s game against Kazakhstan in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Karim Benzema is not quite 100% yet. The Real Madrid striker trained away from the group this Thursday on the side of Clairefontaine, two days before the match against Kazakhstan, at the Parc des Princes (8:45 p.m.), which could allow the Blues to validate their ticket for the 2022 World Cup in case of victory.

Benzema ran with the physical trainer of the Blues, while he has not yet participated in a collective session since the start of the rally on Monday. But nothing serious according to the staff of the France team, who should be able to count on the Madrilenian on Saturday night at the Parc des Princes.

Benzema holder with Griezmann and Mbappé?

Although he has not trained with his teammates, Benzema should still be able to hold his place at the forefront of the trio he forms with Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappé. While his teammate Mattéo Guendouzi said earlier this Thursday that Benzema « deserves the Ballon d’Or this year », KB (1) 9 certainly hopes to participate in this decisive match against Kazakhstan.

Determining in the Final Four of the Nations League in Italy in October, with two goals scored in the semi-finals against Belgium (3-2) and in the final against Spain (2-1), Benzema returned to a key element of Didier Deschamps despite a judgment to come in the sextape affair. The Real Madrid striker is now aiming for participation in the World Cup which will take place in Qatar in just over a year.
