Didier Deschamps, the head coach, expressed his sadness for Karim, who he said: “made this World Cup a huge ambition.”

In my life, I’ve never given up, but tonight, as always, I have to consider the team.

Therefore, the reason urges me to turn over my position to someone who can help our team win the World Cup.

The French Football Federation stated: “The entire team wishes Karim a swift recovery and shares his pain.

According to the report, an MRI scan revealed the damage, which calls for “a three-week rehabilitation period.”

In Group D, France has games against Australia on November 22, Denmark on November 26, and Tunisia on November 30.

Deschamps has lost a number of important players to injury and must choose Benzema’s successor before Monday.

Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante, two midfielders, were left off of the first 26-man roster.

Presnel Kimpembe, a defender, was replaced by Axel Disasi on Monday after withdrawing due to a hamstring problem, while on Wednesday, forward Christopher Nkunku was out after limping out of practice. As a stand-in, Randal Kolo Muani was called up.

Raphael Varane, a defender who has missed Manchester United’s last five games, is hoping to be well.

Anthony Martial, a forward for United, may replace Karim Benzema, who has played fewer than 30 minutes in Real’s last six games due to a thigh injury that he has been dealing with since October.

His first complete training session since the World Cup team came together last week was on Saturday.

Said Deschamps: “In spite of this latest setback, I am very confident in my team. We will do every effort to rise to the enormous challenge before us.”
