Werner has praised Benzema as one of the best strikers in the world

Sat 12 June 2021 | 14:56

​Benzema has been called up to the national team again after scoring 30 goals for Real Madrid last season, and Werner says France will be more dangerous than ever with him alongside Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe.

Werner and Germany will face France on Tuesday in their opening game of Euro 2020.

"

It certainly doesn't make France worse! Benzema is one of the best No 9s in the world,

" Werner told a press conference. "

The trio Benzema-Griezmann-Mbappe, if they play together like that, is of course extremely dangerous and world-class

."

He added:

"Of course you learn something from a striker like Benzema. Just because he has achieved a lot, but also because of his quality. For me, he is incredible with the ball, the way he dribbles, the way he moves, the way he finishes

.

"I think he's like Roberto Firmino at Liverpool, getting the ball early, distributing and still being quick with his qualities in the penalty area. With Robert Lewandowski and Cristiano Ronaldo, he forms the top three centre-forwards for me."

But in the German national team, it seems that Werner has not convinced Joachim Low and will watch the game from the bench.

"

Maybe I'm a bit behind the starting XI, but that's not bad either. I'm not a player who sits in the stands with his arms folded and sulks

," he said.

"I put myself at the service of the team. We have a lot of players in the squad who all deserve to play from the start. It's a tournament and we want to be successful as a team.

"Of course I want to play, but it's normal at this level to come off the bench sometimes. It's important to show the coach that you can then help the team."
