Karim Benzema on the French national team: “There is a new generation, new young players.”

Speaking to Téléfoot earlier this week after beating Ajax 2-1 in Amsterdam with Real Madrid, French attacker Karim Benzema discussed Cristiano Ronaldo and the French national team.

On Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure:

Each game for me is a new fight, a new challenge. Of course I have more responsibility now, I need to try to make a difference in each match.

On a return to the French national team:

The French national team is something else. I play my matches but I cannot say I am expecting a call up. They have a team, they are world champions. There is a new generation, new young players. They are doing good work and I wish them good luck.
