Karim Benzema will be left out of France EURO 2016 squad, the striker himself complained on Twitter.
Online betting sites in France are divided by the news: some betting experts believe that this decision will increase France’s chances of triumphing the tournament. Their argument is that this way the team will be able to focus better and there will be no angry atmosphere among the members of the team. On the other hand, Karim Benzema is one of the biggest star players of the French national team and France has just lost a key player, which might become a huge disadvantage.
France will host the Euro 2016 so Real Madrid’s striker will miss out on an event in front of his own people. This must be really hard for the Galactico but he should have expected this to come. Not many players can participate in a continental tournament with a legal case ahead of them. Especially that the offended one is another member of the France national team, Mathieu Valbuena.
Benzema announced his exclusion of the France EURO 2016 squad on Twitter
Karim Benzema had a meeting with France national coach Didier Deschamps and FFF President Noel Le Gaet. The topic of the meeting was obvious: to discuss the future of Real Madrid’s number 9. Right after the meeting has finished, Karim Benzema posted on Twitter revealing he wouldn’t be selected for the tournament. So, online sportsbooks in the EU can take his name of potential lists of top goalscorers.
His post went viral immediately and Álvaro Arbeloa, team member at Real Madrid quickly replied to Benzema’s bad news. The full back wrote that he was sad to hear that the world’s best number 9 is not going to participate in the Euro 2016. Arbeloa also assured his mate that he will always stand beside him. The Spaniard likes to tweet a lot. Recently he came into spotlight due to his Twitter-fight between Barca defender Gerard Piqué.
An accusation case is too much for the French prestige
Karim Benzema has had lots of issues with the police – these were mostly because of his inability to drive safely. His driver’s license is probably still a property of the Spanish police. However, this time he got into something much more serious, and despite he will most probably not going to prison, he is still in a lot of trouble.
The reason why Benzema has been left out of the France EURO 2016 squad is because his name arose as one of the main suspects in a horrible blackmail scandal. The case is with Mathieu Valbuena having a sex tape which has gotten into the wrong hands. The French striker was blackmailed for €100,000 to avoid the video going online. Benzema’s brother is said to be the main suspect and Benzema is charged of having helped him blackmail Valbuena.
