Didier Deschamps heaped praise on Karim Benzema after the once-in-exile forward played a key role in France’s Nations League victory. Benzema equalized France in a 2–1 win over Spain that handed the trophy to the world champions, and Deschamps was pleased with his striker. “Karim is an important player and he has proved in two games that he has very clear talent, it’s for everyone,” Deschamps told reporters.

“He has improved in various areas, he is clinical, he plays his part in the build-up.”

Real Madrid forward Benzema was dropped from the national team for more than five years but was recalled by Deschamps ahead of Euro 2020.


He made an impressive showing in the Nations League Final Four in Italy, pulling a goal back with France in their 3-2 win over Belgium on Thursday and leveling the score with a brilliant curling shot on Sunday night, when Mikel Oyarzabal had put Spain ahead. .

“From a personal point of view he is no longer the same person, he has matured. He has been at the highest level for a long time and I am glad he is able to celebrate with France tonight.”
