France national team: “Our story ends”, Karim Benzema announces retirement from international career

A new thunderclap for the French team. The day after the French defeat in the World Cup final, Karim Benzema announced that he was retiring from international football. World Cup package due to a muscle tear, so the Real Madrid striker will no longer wear the tricolor. “I put in effort and made mistakes to be who I am today and I am proud of it! I wrote my story and our story is coming to an end,” he wrote on his Instagram account.

Benzema didn’t give Les Bleus fans a break and announced it on his 35th birthday. Lyon’s career comes to an end after 97 tackles and 37 goals. His last cap came at the Stade de France in a loss to Croatia at least last June.

The forward’s three-color history is marked by a big break. After the Valbuena sex tape case, the Ballon d’Or did not wear a rooster jersey between October 2015 and June 2021. Didier Deschamps remembered this before Euro 2021, during which France lost to Switzerland in the 1/8 finals. He has since won the Nations League, playing a key role in the final against Belgium (3-2) and Spain (2-1).

During this World Cup, the KB9 case got people talking. Several cryptic social media posts drew attention, and her relationship with Deschamps took a mysterious turn after leaving Qatar ahead of the start of France’s tournament.
