Benzema Set to Play at the World Cup 2022 in Qatar Finals against Argentina

Yesterday, France President Macron has stated that its super star striker Karim Benzema has been invited to be present at the final World Cup 2022 in Qatar. In same vein, Macron does not want to travel alone to Qatar to witness the final against Argentina this Sunday at the Lusail stadium.

During this report Didier Deschamps gave a sudden cold response in the press room after the victory against Morocco when he was asked if Karim had a chance to either return to play if he recovers or to be in the stands.

He simply responded saying that  the whole report according to France sports Minister Amelie Oudea-Castera has confirmed on RTL that, Macron’s idea is not only to take Benzema, but as well the group of injured players who have missed out due to injury such as Paul Pogba or N’Golo Kante or those who have been in Qatar.

Still speaking, Amelie Oudea-Castera added “I know that he is keen to do it and that it is being studied, We shall see if it is possible.”

According to France Coach, Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kante and Karim Benzema can reach the final as they have recovered from injuries. Also, the latter has already recovered from an injury which made him to take part in a friendly match between Real Madrid and Leganes on Thursday. 

Benzema is also likely to receive a World Cup medal as he is still in the France squad for the tournament. 

Benzema is no longer injured but fit for finals World Cup 2022 in Qatar

Karim Benzema’s injury case is not very similar to the rest. He is not injured as he was spotted this morning in Madrid, where the striker played a friendly against Leganes.

Recall that Karim Benzema was injured on November 19 and was ruled out by Deschamps when the coach considered that he would not be back in time.

Nevertheless, the striker’s recovery has shown that the deadlines set by the French Football Federation were not in line with the extent of the injury and the proof was that friendly against Leganes, it is no longer news that he is fit to participate for the finals

Benzema’s idea was not to attend the world cup at Qatar, although we will have to see the power of persuasion of President Macron. Since he was able to convince Kylian Mbappe to stay at PSG, then why can’t he do so to Benzema?

It is worthy to note that whether or not Benzema comes to the World Cup 2022 in Qatar, his history will be on paper as a world champion who was not replaced by anyone.

France will face Argentina in the final. The world Cup 2022 in Qatar, Finals between France and Argentina will take place on Sunday, December 18 at the Lusail Stadium and will start at 4:00 p.m. Lagos time.
