According to Vn88cx, Striker Karim Benzema has the opportunity to participate in the 2022 World Cup when his injury recovers faster than expected.
On the night of November 28 (Hanoi time), Vn88 Sport revealed that Benzema is recovering quickly after suffering a left thigh injury. Even if the treatment is satisfactory, the Real Madrid star can return to Qatar and attend the next matches of the French team in case “Les Bleus” goes deep in this tournament. The final decision depends on the individual Benzema and coach Didier Deschamps.
Mario Cortegana, a reporter for Marca, reported that the team of doctors at Real said that Benzema’s injury “is not as serious as reported by colleagues in the French team”.
Benzema left Qatar on November 20, the time of the opening ceremony of the 2022 World Cup, to return to Real Madrid to practice recovery. However, coach Deschamps still did not cross his name from the list of “Les Bleus” players, nor did he summon a replacement.
Sharing with Vn88.cx, the coach said that despite the absence of Benzema, coach Deschamps gave Olivier Giroud the main kick. In the 4-1 win over Australia on November 22, the AC Milan striker shone with a brace. These two goals help Giroud equal the record of 51 goals for the French team of legendary Thierry Henry.
In the event that France wins the 2022 World Cup, Benzema is still eligible to receive a medal thanks to his name on the list of competitions. Currently, France is one of three teams (besides Brazil and Portugal) officially entering the round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup after 2 matches.
“Benzema is a special player and needs special attention,” said former player Samir Nasri. France does not necessarily need his services against opponents like Australia, Tunisia or Denmark. Benzema will help the team rise to new heights and is a necessary player in the knock-out stage. So it’s disastrous for Benzema to leave the team.”
After 97 caps for France, Benzema scored 37 goals. Before being named in the list of France’s 2022 World Cup, Benzema was honored to receive the 2022 Golden Ball award after his brilliant achievement in Real’s shirt.
Vn88 mobile said the red card for reacting to referee Anthony Taylor made coach Paulo Bento in trouble. He could not attend the press conference after the Korea – Ghana match, instead being assistant Sergio Costa.
In the final match of the group stage against Portugal, coach Bento was not given instructions on the field, could not communicate with the whole team even via walkie-talkie and could not enter the changing room mid-half. However, the 53-year-old strategist can attend the pre-match press conference.
Unable to attend the press conference of Vn88cx held after the match organized by FIFA, coach Bento quickly replied to Korean reporters. He said: “The result was not fair, but I am happy with the players. I am proud of them. We played a good game and could have won. Of course, there were mistakes in the game. defensively but we equalized in the second half and our performance improved towards the end.”
Korea’s 2-3 loss to Ghana had two controversial situations coming from referee Taylor’s decision. He recognized the goal of the African representative without reviewing the video from the VAR room. At the end of the game, he blew the final whistle, making it impossible for Korea to take the corner.
This made coach Bento angry, rushing into the field to argue with the referee and lead to a red card.
Assistant Costa said in the press room of Vn88: “The first 25 minutes we played well. We were deprived of the opportunity to equalize at the end of the game. Coach Bento had a legitimate objection to the referee, I don’t know. say more”.
The loss to Ghana made it difficult for Korea to compete for tickets to the round of 16. In the last match on December 2, the kimchi team will meet Portugal without the direction of coach Bento.
