Deschamps reveals the scenes of the return of Benzema to France's list in the euro after an absence since 2015

Didier Deschamps, the coach of the French national team, confirmed that he was not worried about Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema achieving homogeneity with the other attackers in the ranks of the roosters, after his return to the list of his country participating in the European Championship "Euro 2020".

Deschamps said at the press conference held this evening about calling Benzema again to the ranks of the French national team, "Benzema and I met and we talked together, then I made this decision," adding, "Benzema and I needed that conversation, as a coach for the national team I always looked beyond." From my personal feeling. "

"I called Benzema because he would improve the quality of the national team," Deschamps added. "I did not call him to sit him on the bench."

Concerned about Karim Benzema's achievement of coherence in such a short period of time with the other attackers, Deschamps explained, "With quality, intelligence and talent you can go far."

Speaking of France’s chances of winning the European title, Deschamps said, "As a champion of the world, there are expectations, but this is not completely happening. We are ambitious and we will do our best to move forward."

The last match Karim Benzema played for the French national team was on October 8, 2015, against Armenia, in a friendly, during which he scored a double.

The French national team competes in Group F in the European Nations Championship "Euro 2020", with Hungary, Portugal and Germany.

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema was recently crowned the best French professional player in the various European leagues, awarded by the Professional Players' Union, for the second year in a row, after the Algerian-born star was able to win it last season.

The Professional Players Union announced the victory of Karim Benzema for his great contributions to the Real Madrid during the current season and his ability to lead the team to achieve outstanding results, most notably his arrival in the semi-finals of the Champions League and the competition for the Spanish League title for the current season under Zinedine Zidane's leadership now.
