Will Karim Benzema return to the French national team already during the World Cup?

Didier Deschamps did not call up another player when the Ballon d'Or winner was ruled out due to injury and can therefore still use him if he returns to fitness.

According to the Spanish media, Benzema is almost fully fit and is expected to report to Real Madrid training on Thursday.

Theoretically, he can also return to the French squad, as long as coach Deschamps wants it.



Even if he is not recalled to the squad, Benzema will be considered a world champion and will be eligible for a medal if France is able to lift the world cup again at the conclusion of the World Cup final on December 18.

FIFA confirmed that 26 medals will be distributed to the players and as mentioned Benzema's name was not removed from the list submitted by France at the beginning of the tournament.

Still will be part of this World Cup?

The 34-year-old Benzema, who was not included in the squad for the previous World Cup because of the blackmail affair in which he was involved, returned to play for the French national team before the last Euro and was supposed to lead the tricolor in the current World Cup together with Kylian Mbappe.

His injury changed plans and made Olivier Giroud the starting player, with reports emerging that "the atmosphere in the team has improved" in Benzema's absence.



Orlian Tshoumani, the striker's friend at Real and the national team, denied these claims and clarified that these are false reports.

France is the first team in the World Cup to secure its place in the round of 16, after victories over Australia and Denmark.

She will finish the group stage on Wednesday against Tunisia, when a point and even a minimal loss will be enough for her to qualify from first place.



According to reports in France, Deschamps is expected to make six or seven changes to the lineup against Tunisia.

The veteran Steve Mandanda will start between the posts and Eduardo Camabinga, the improvisation in the squad as a substitute in the left back position, is expected to give a rest to Theo Hernandez.

Benjamin Favar, Yussuf Popana and Kingsley Coman also practiced in the 11.
