Karim Benzema has expressed his joy after returning to the French National Team. The Real Madrid striker played in the victory of the current world champion against Wales, where, among other things, he missed a penalty.
Karim Benzema returned last night to the French National Team after a full six years. The dangerous striker could not celebrate the goal in the first game after returning. However, he enjoyed the comeback and victory over Wales in the friendly before the start of the European Championship. He even missed a penalty. However, this fact did not stop him from rejoicing.
“I was feeling great. I had a good week working out, physically improving. It was a difficult season with many games, but I felt good throughout the game.” the former Lyon striker told French television “TF1”. Benzema also talked about the “trio” in the attack that he formed with Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann.
He hopes to quickly find harmony with these two super strikers, to help France be declared European champions. “We have trained a lot, above all to play against teams that play with deep defense. We made a great game and we tried, that’s the most important thing. In matches like this, it is important to create chances and win, despite the fact that I did not score”, continued the 33-year-old.
“I had so much pride, joy, I want to play, to demonstrate how much I am worth. This is what I did on the field. I am trying to adapt and find harmony in attack with Mbappe and Griezmann”, concluded Benzema, who a few years ago was excluded from the French National Team.
