Benzema out of World Cup with Thigh Injury

Karim Benzema has been ruled out of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar after tearing a muscle in his left thigh, the French Football Federation has confirmed.

The Ballon d’Or winner, 34, was forced to leave defending champions France’s training session early after suffering the injury in training on Saturday.

Benzema was taking part in his first full training session with Les Bleus when he had to come off after feeling some pain in his left thigh.

Benzema wrote on Instagram: “In my life, I have never given up but tonight I have to think about the team, as I have always done, so reason tells me to leave my place to someone who can help our group make a good World Cup.
