The Real Madrid star traveled to training with the team in Doha, Qatar on Saturday. At this time, his old thigh injury on his left leg woke up. That’s when the panic finally set in. After an MRI, it turned out that he needed at least three weeks to recover from his injury. in other words Your World Cup in Qatar is definitely over.
De ma vie je n’ai jamais abandonné mais ce soir il faut que je pense à l’équipe comme je l’ai toujours fait alors la raison me dit de laisser ma place à quelqu’un qui pourra aider notre groupe à faire une belle Coupe du Monde. Merci pour tous vos messages de soutien 🙌🏼❤️ pic.twitter.com/SBalX0juAH— Karim Benzema (@Benzema) November 19, 2022
Before the World Cup began, Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kante, and Kimpembe were seriously injured and coach Didier Deschamps had to announce his World Cup squad without them. After that, as the team announced, Leipzig forward Christopher Nkuku was excluded due to injury.
After losing two young midfielders, Pogba and Kante, the coach worried about the midfielder. Because without two very experienced people, the responsibility of managing the midfield rests with Eduardo Camavinga and the inexperienced Aurelien Tchouameni. Kimpembe is not on the defensive, and Raphael Varane has yet to recover from injury.
I heard that Anthony Martial could call him a backup. Since Benzema was knocked out, he also suffered a thigh injury last October. however, all things considered for France, he is not a regular striker in Manchester United’s first 11th.
