Benzema case that left him out of the French team
Mathieu Valbuena is one of the main subjects and the reason why Karim Benzema had not been taken into account for the France team, despite being one of the best players and scorers in recent years in the French countryside.
His absence is due to the scandal that arose around Mathieu Valbuena and the alleged sex video for which they threatened the former Marseille footballer. Karim Benzema was rumored that he was involved in these acts of blackmail.
That is why Didier Deschamps made the determination to dispense with Karim Benzema as of 2015. In total, he missed 2 important tournaments for the national team and his career, because in Euro 2016, they reached the final, but they lost to Portugal, and in the 2018 World Cup Russia, they were crowned champions.
