France’s Benzema to miss World Cup after suffering injury

France’s World Cup title defense is off to a very unfortunate start.

Julien Laurens of ESPN reported on Saturday that French forward Karim Benzema suffered a left thigh injury during a training session on the eve of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. An MRI revealed that Benzema has a muscle tear that will keep him out for three weeks. As a result, the 34-year-old is now set to miss the entire tournament.

Benzema confirmed the news in a post to his Instagram page, saying that he needed to give up his spot on the World Cup team to a healthier player.
