It happened during an international friendly between France and Bulgaria, one of Les Bleus top players suffered a knee serious knee injury.
Terrible news for the France national team as one of their top players suffered a serious injury during a friendly against Bulgaria. Just when he finally returned to play after almost six years out of activity, Karim Benzema suffered a knee injury that seems serious. He suffered a blow during the first half against Bulgaria that sent him to the ground with evident signs of pain.
Despite leaving the pitch on his own, the cameras caught Benzema crying as the doctors tended to him. This is terrible news for a player the entire world expected to deliver during the Euros. After the first half ended, Didier Deschamps spoke to the press to give an update on Karim: “Benzema received a major blow. We must not run any type of risk with him. The medical staff is still tending to him at the moment.”
Giroud takes Benzema’s place.
In the first half, France got ahead on the scoreboard with a brilliant bicycle kick goal but the biggest news was Benzema’s injury. We will stay vigilant on the medical report right after the match. The man who took Karim’s place was Olivier Giroud, who scored France’s second goal during the second half. If that wasn’t enough, Giroud scored his second goal after an assist from Ben Yedder.
The entire world is going mad while think about the possibility of Karim Benzema missing the European Championship. If this happens, at least France does have Olivier Giroud to replace him. France defeated Bulgaria with a late 3-0 victory. But we are all worried about the Real Madrid striker. Hopefully, his injury isn’t that serious and he can play in the Euros.
