Like the other players of the French team, Karim Benzema joined Clairefontaine on Monday noon to prepare for the World Cup with the Blues.
The center forward of Real Madrid, freshly crowned with the Ballon d’Or, will be eagerly awaited by the supporters of the French team during this World Cup. On the other hand, a doubt remains with regard to his physical condition. And for good reason, Karim Benzema missed Real Madrid’s last two games against Rayo Vallecano and against Cadiz due to minor muscle discomfort. Unlike Presnel Kimpembe or Mike Maignan, “KB9” is still part of Didier Deschamps’ list. According to the coach of the Blues, there is nothing to worry about with Karim Benzema, who above all preserved himself in order to be sure not to get injured in view of the World Cup. Former physical trainer of the French team and Real Madrid, Grégory Dupont is a man very well placed to speak on the case of Karim Benzema.

Asked by La Voix du Nord, he believes that the supporters of the French team do not have to fear a withdrawal from Karim Benzema for the World Cup. “He is someone who knows his body by heart, knows how to rest it when necessary” simply commented on the former physical trainer of Real Madrid and the French team, who confirms that according to him, Karim Benzema’s packages for the last matches in Spain were above all a way for him to recharge the batteries and to arrive at the World Cup at 100% of its means. Karim Benzema therefore has a very serious chance of starting the first match for the French team in Qatar in the shoes of a starter alongside his friends Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappé. It will be next Tuesday, November 22 against Australia.
