Benzema pulls out of France training due to injury

Karim Benzema suffers yet another injury set back as he was forced out of France’s training today.

The 2022 Ballon d’Or winner, Karim Benzema barely made it to the World Cup since he was out of action for the past month or two, and it seems that he has suffered yet another injury upon his return to training on Saturday.

It was reported today by both

L'Equipe

and

RMC

Sport that the Real Madrid striker couldn’t finish today’s session and had to leave the training but there has been no indication of how serious his injury might be.

Benzema’s season so far has been mired with injuries, with him first suffering a knee injury and then a muscular fatigue in his quadriceps.

France

is of course one of the favorites to reach the final stages of the tournament but if Benzema is out injured, Deschamps men will have a tough job defending their 2018 title.

France has been hit by injuries ahead of the World Cup with major players like Kante and Pogba missing out on the tournament as well as the likes of Kimpembe and Nkunku who suffered injuries recently and had to leave Les Bleus camp. Whether Benzema adds to Deschamps headache as they head into their first match against

Australia

, remains to be seen.
