A possible return of the striker to the French team, during the 2024 Olympics, has been discussed for several days. Opinions differ on this subject.

Even if he announced the end of his international career in December 2022, Karim Benzema remains eligible for a call-up for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, which will take place from July 24 to August 10.

“The Olympics? Why not, of course, it could be great! »even enthused the former Real Madrid player. “All doors are open, for everyone”simply commented on Thierry Henry, the Bleuets coach, about a possible return of Benzema in the rooster jersey.

Benzema, what is his real level today?

For his part, Daniel Riolo is not at all convinced that such a comeback would be appropriate. “No one knows what form he is in since he left the World Cup in the middle of the night. He's been in trouble for a year and a half and hasn't played much. (His club statistics) are nothing! We don't know anything about him.”declared the sports journalist on the airwaves of RMC.

As a reminder, the coach of the France Espoirs team will have the possibility of calling on three players over the age of 23 for this competition. Olivier Giroud and Antoine Griezmann could be among the lucky ones, while Kylian Mbappé risks being retained by his future club, Real Madrid.
