BREAKING: Benzema retires from national team


A day after France lost World Cup to Argentina in an enthralling match, Karim Benzema has announced his retirement from international football.

He said this after missing France’s run to the World Cup final.

Recalled that Benzema was sent home on the eve of the tournament after picking up an injury, but there was some speculation that he could return for the final after playing a friendly for Real Madrid, but France coach, Didier Deschamps has another thing in mind.

It was gathered that the France striker has a score to settle with, with the France coach as suspicions were raised in Deschamps’ interview and Benzema reportedly refusing to join the France squad for the grand finale.

‘I made the effort and the mistakes it took to be where I am today and I’m proud of it! I have written my story and ours is ending,’ the French striker wrote on Instagram on Monday afternoon.

Benzema finishes his France career with 37 goals in 97 caps, but his journey with the national team has been far from smooth since his debut 15 years ago.
