Benzema recently took it easy at the camp in Clairefontaine
Returning Karim Benzema reported fit before the first European Championship match between soccer world champions France and Germany. “Yesterday I resumed team training. After that I had no pain or discomfort. So I'm 100 percent ready for action,” the Real Madrid striker told Telefoot on Sunday.
The 33-year-old, who had returned to the Equipe Tricolore after six years before this tournament, was hit on the thigh in the last European Championship test against Bulgaria (3-0). France will meet Germany in Munich on Tuesday. France coach Didier Deschamps is also not worried about the striker's use. “We took the necessary care. We have two more sessions until the game, so that shouldn't be a problem,” said the coach.
