Keeps fit: Karim Benzema


Can France hope for Karim Benzema?


Ballon d'Or winner Karim Benzema could possibly still play for France.

Several Spanish media are speculating that the Real Madrid striker could return to training on Thursday.

Accordingly, his injury is not a muscle tear.

In theory, Benzema should still be used because the French have not nominated anyone and continue to lead him in the 26-man squad.

Even if you start training this week, it seems unlikely that you will play in the round of 16.

Brazil breaks Germany's group game record

6:32 a.m .:

With the 1-0 (0-0) against Switzerland, Brazil remained unbeaten in the 17th game during a World Cup group stage and thus surpassed the record set by the German team between the finals in 1990 and 2010.

The Selecao's streak began with the 2002 World Cup triumph and could be extended in Friday's group final against Cameroon.

Germany had gone 16 matches unbeaten since beating Yugoslavia 4-1 32 years ago, which heralded the World Cup triumph in Italy, before the streak broke in the second group tie against Serbia (0-1) at the finals in South Africa in 2010 .

Ronaldo or Bruno Fernandes – who scored the goal?


It's about the scene in the 54th minute in the game against Uruguay: Portugal's Bruno Fernandes crossed, Cristiano Ronaldo tried to head, the ball went in.

Ronaldo let himself be celebrated, but even the television pictures could not resolve whether he touched the ball.

According to official information, the goal scorer is Bruno Fernandes.

Another goal would equal Ronaldo Eusebio's record nine World Cup goals for Portugal.

Portuguese media reported that the world association would reassess the scene and answer the question of who actually scored.
