Karim Benzema back in France Squad since 2015

Didier Deschamps, who is the national team coach for France has re-included Karim Benzema in his Euro 2020 squad despite the striker facing trial in a sexual related case.

Benzema was said to have pressurised Valbuena, who was his french teammate back then in 2015 to pay blackmailers who threatened to reveal a sex video which he featured in. This led to Benzema's ban from the national team in 2015.  


However, Benzema will face trialfrom, October 20 to October 22. 

But Benzema has been called up back into the squad alongside his fellow forwards Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Kingsley Coman, Olivier Giroud, Ousmane Dembele, Wissam Ben Yedder, and Marcus Thuram.
