France Scared Of Loss To Germany As Benzema Went Off Injured

France are sweating over the fitness of Karim Benzema after the striker went off injured during a warm-up friendly against Bulgaria.

Les Bleus cruised to a 3-0 victory, but they were handed a scare ahead of their Euro 2020 opener against Germany in Munich next Tuesday.

He is expected to spearhead a frightening France attack – if fit
Playing just his second international match since October 2015 after being recalled this summer, Real Madrid star Benzema asked to be substituted in the first-half due to a knee problem.

“It’s a knock on the knee, which also affects the muscle. He felt he was getting stiff so he asked to be subbed,” coach Didier Deschamps told TF1.

“The medical staff are taking care of him.”

The 33-year-old was replaced by Olivier Giroud – who seized his opportunity.

After Antoine Greizmann opened the scoring, the Chelsea striker struck twice inside the last seven minutes.

Not only did Giroud stake his claim for a place in the side, the 34-year-old also edged closer to France history.

He now has 46 goals for his country, just five short of Arsenal legend Thierry Henry’s all-time record.

IN NIGERIA SYSTEM WE ARE NOT USED TO REMEMBERING GOOD WORK ONLY THE BAD

SORRY I DID NOT KNOW THE GOOD THINGS DONE BY MINIMAL. HOWEVER GOD BLESS HIM FOR THOSE GOOD WORK

But he has to wake up and stand firm for boxing because when his house is not in order ,it is the man of the house that people blame. eg. GCFR Buhari. Because NBF problem is exactly like Nigeria problem.

The minister told me that NBF is divided into 3 groups but In my investigation I find out,that there are even four groups fighting for the control of the game namely Minimal,Ayeni,Oldschool and omogege but it is our boxers, coaches and R&J that is suffering as the result of the fight

Now it is the duty of those interested group to use the case of inefficient and embezzlement of fund to fight their opponent to victory for the benefit of justice and accountability.
