"France showed strength and character" - Benzema

Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema hailed France’s mental strength as they secured a 2-1 UEFA Nations League final victory over Spain.

Le Bleus battled back from 1-0 down to secure their first win in the competition with Benzema scoring a spectacular equaliser before Kylian Mbappe sealed it for France.

The victory is Benzema’s first international title at senior level for France following his return to the fold at the start of Euro 2020 after an eight year hiatus.

The Frenchman was excited to add another medal to his collection at club level with Real Madrid, as France bounced back from disappointment this summer.

As per reports from French outlet M6, via BBC Sport, he said: "I really wanted to win a trophy with France, and now it’s done.”

“We showed strength of character, because this team is very strong, and it never gives up and we have proven it today.

“It is the sign of a great team not to panic, to be patient and to wait for the right opportunity,” he concluded.
