Will Benzema Be Wearing Algeria’s Jersey?

The Benzema’s saga continues. Indeed, the words of the president of the French Football Federation (FFF) on RMC Sport aroused the anger of the Real Madrid striker.

“Karim, he’s a very good player, I’ve never questioned his qualities. On the contrary, he shows every day with Real Madrid that he is one of the best players in the world at his job. But for him, the adventure with the French team is over,” said Noël Le Graët.

In response to this statement, Benzema challenged the FFF President. “Noel, I thought you didn’t interfere with the coach’s decisions! I would like you to know that it is I and only I who will put an end to my international career. If you think I’m finished, let me play for one of the countries for which I’m eligible and we’ll see,” he wrote on Twitter.

Does Benzema hope to defend Algeria’s colors?. According to FIFA regulations, a player who has already taken part in an international match (totally or partially) in an official competition may no longer play for another country, unless there are exceptions.

The Madrid striker could wear the Fennecs jersey on only one condition that is to lose French nationality.
