The French national team and Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema was injured in a friendly match between France and Bulgaria on Tuesday, a week before the first European Cup match against Germany.
Benzema joined last week after a six-year suspension and left the game in the 39th minute due to a right knee injury. Olivier Giroud replaced him.
From the expression of Benzema after leaving the field, it can be seen that his injury is serious and fans are worried that he may miss the European Cup.
After the game, Deschamps said that Benzema’s muscles above the knee were severely hit.
“He was hit and the muscle above the knee was severely injured. He felt pain and we didn’t want to take a risk. The doctor was with him,” Deschamps said briefly.
However, today, good news came from the French national team. Benzema underwent a detailed knee examination and determined that it was not a more serious injury.
French media reported that Benzema suffered minor injuries and will train in two or three days.
The Euro will start on Friday, June 11, with France and Germany, Portugal and Hungary in Group F.
