Benzema lifted the trophy with Joy yesterday in rememberance of the 5 year national team blackout that he suffered just a while ago.
No one truly understood why Karim Benzema was snubbed over and over again from 2016 till 2021 when Didier Deschamps gave him a nod for the Euro 2020 tournament that just concluded. But so far, we can see that he put in a brilliant performance in the UEFA Nations League after scoring twice in two games to turn the results around in the favour of France.
He scored against Belgium from a tight corner to force an equalizer against the Red Devils in the semi-finals, a goal that changed the game and made France win the game.
He later scored again against Spain, still an equalizer that inspired Kylian Mbappe to kill off the game with a 79th minute winner. This is the Karim Benzema that we all knew 10 years ago, he still got it and one thing we can learn from his comeback performances is that it is never too late to turn things around for your national team, no matter how long you were snubbed. Tammy Abraham seems to be following his example for England after scoring in his comeback match for the Three Lions against Andorra.
