Real Madrid baller in danger of missing the World Cup following injury – report

Defending champions France have not had it easy coming into the 2022 World Cup. Their starting midfielders — N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba have already been ruled out due to injuries, while star forward Christopher Nkunku picked up an injury in training and will miss the tournament.

Life in the French camp is not getting easier, either, with reports from Andres Ramos claiming that Karim Benzema found it very difficult to train with the team today and had to leave injured.

The journalist claims that the striker was not even at his ‘60%’, and that it could, potentially compromise his presence in the World Cup.

He has been ruled out for the pre-tournament friendly against Australia, and is ‘almost ruled out’ from the World Cup, as well. Benzema is going through medical examinations right now.

This is a massive hurdle for Didier Deschamps given Benzema’s form coming into the World Cup. The Real Madrid striker was at the heart of everything last season, winning the Ballon d’Or following success in La Liga and the Champions League.

This campaign, however, has been rather turbulent for him. Unfortunately, the veteran striker has picked up several injuries across the 2022/23 season.

Carlo Ancelotti has deployed star Rodrygo in his place multiple times this season, but as talented as the Brazilian is, he has been unable to replicate Benzema’s exploits.

Benzema had already missed France’s World Cup-winning campaign in 2018 and is now in danger of missing out on the defence.
