World Cup: 3 Reasons Why Benzema Will Not Return To France Squad Despite His Recovery From Injury.

2022 Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema was ruled out of the World Cup a day before the tournament began but has made a swift recovery from injury.

The Real Madrid forward fancies his chances of getting back into France World Cup squad but there is a likely probability that he won’t feature for France in the 2022 World Cup at Qatar again.

The head coach of France national team, Deschamps had options to explore when Christopher Nkunku and Karim Benzema were both ruled out the 2022 World Cup but the Frenchman decided to stick with the big guns already at his disposal.

Kylian Mbappe, Oliver Giroud, Ousmane Dembele and Antonio Griezmann has all hit the ground running in the ongoing World Cup at Qatar so there could be no more room for Karim Benzema.

Now, let’s take a look at the 3 likely reasons why Karim Benzema will not feature for France in the World Cup at Qatar despite his speedy recovery from the injury that ruled him out of the tournament.

1. Sufficient firepower

Kylian Mbappe already has 3 goals to his name at Qatar and Oliver Giroud scored twice against Australia.

Deschamps has a sufficient firepower at his disposal currently and the arrival of Karim Benzema could really slow things down in their attacking unit.

2. Last edition’s triumph

France won the 2018 World Cup without Karim Benzema and are already coping well without the services of the Real Madrid striker.

3. Benzema is not fully fit

Karim Benzema has made a speedy recovery from the injury that ruled out the World Cup at Qatar, no doubt, but the Real Madrid frontman still needs time to gain match fitness.

France has already booked themselves a place in the World Cup knockout phase and things intends to get “hot” when France plays their final groupstage game against Poland and learn their round of sixteen opponent.

There will be no time for Karim Benzema to gain match fitness
