Benzema Doubtful For World Cup Opener


Karim Benzema’s mysterious injury issues continue to hinder the French forward.

Despite Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti remarking that he has the medical all clear from the doctors two weeks ago, Benzema continues to be unfit.

What was initially diagnosed as muscle fatigue has frequently been referred to by both Ancelotti and Benzema as small discomfort and ‘not being 100%’.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Benzema remains in individual training with the French national side.

He is now a serious doubt for the opening match against Australia on Tuesday. He has played just 30 minutes of football since the 19th of October against Elche.
