The striker wanted to correct his old mistakes in Qatar, but fate decreed otherwise.
One of the main stars of the 2022 World Cup was supposed to be Karim Benzema. The French striker has finally regained his place in the national team and got the chance to prove himself in the main international tournament. The owner of the Golden Ball could turn into a team leader and, perhaps, play a key role in the performance of the French: in recent years, the player has regularly saved Real Madrid due to his sporting arrogance and skill.
However, fate decreed otherwise. The striker sensationally fell out of the cage right before the start of the tournament – and was never able to shine in Qatar. And after the defeat of France in the final, Karim upset the fans with another piece of news, announcing his departure from the national team.
