Stunning Video Of Karim Benzema’s France Comeback Ahead Of Euro 2020
Benzema starred on his France comeback despite missing a first-half penalty as the World Cup holders beat Wales 3-0 ahead of Euro 2020.
The Real Madrid striker made his first appearance for Les Bleus since October 2015 after he and coach Didier Deschamps squashed their beef.
And the 33-year-old delivered a masterful performance up top.
He failed to get on the score-sheet, but he shined in attack – forging a lethal on-field relationship with fellow attacking stars Mbappe and Griezmann.
The trio wreaked havoc all night, creating chances and openings as they prepared in style for this summer’s tournament.
The link-up play between him, Mbappe and Griezmann could prove deadly at the Euros.
A clip of Benzema’s outing has since been shared online and it makes for sensational viewing.
His brilliant international showing sent social media wild.
Deschamps subbed off Mbappe and Griezmann but Benzema played the full 90, even though this was his first game back. :clap:

Imagine having to chase Benzema, Mbappe and Griezmann around for 70 minutes only to have to finish the last 20 minutes getting your ankles turned to dust by Dembele and Coman. Pure violence.

One tweeted: “Link up play was at a 100%. This guy is so good.”
A second wrote: “What a difference playing alongside Mbappe and Griezmann, Madrid is wasting his last years with Vinicius and Asensio as teammates.”
A third added: “What a great game he had
people blaming him for missing the pen while he has more shots on target for france than giroud in the whole wc 2018 campaign.”
A fourth commented: “He’s so good.. France has been missing out. hard luck he didn’t score.”
