Karim Benzema yet to reveal whether he will attend World Cup final

L’Équipe report today that Real Madrid have left Karim Benzema with the choice over whether or not to attend the World Cup final, with no clear indication as of yet on the Ballon d’Or winner’s decision yet.

With president Emmanuel Macron ostensibly considering bringing along Les Bleus’ injury absentees to the match on Sunday, the likes of Paul Pogba and Lucas Hernandez have seen their respective clubs put a veto on a possible trip to Doha in light of their injury recoveries.

As for Karim Benzema, while he has stayed in contact with several members of the dressing room, several of L’Équipe’s sources have confirmed that not everyone in the squad is necessarily his fan, and that the atmosphere has not suffered with his departure, days before the opening game against Australia.

Although he has not informed the France camp over his intention for Sunday, Benzema has continued to show his support for Les Bleus on social media. He remains eligible for a winner’s medal should the team beat Argentina.
