Karim Benzema may not play in 2022 World Cup competition that will be held in Qatar, starting today, according to reports. During the game, the gifted forward was hurt.
Nevertheless, Karim Benzema's unavailability might be just what France needs to reprise their World Cup championship performance. Giroud will have the chance to take over Benzema's position as Deschamps' line-leader, a position he excelled in during the most recent world cup.
However, Giroud only had 3 goal-scoring opportunities during whole competition and failed to score any goals in the most recent world cup. He nevertheless contributed significantly to the team by facilitating the attacking brilliance of Mbappe and Griezmann.
Giroud's presence in the lineup will undoubtedly create the necessary spaces behind the opposition's defense for players including Mbappe and Dembele this season.
France may actually benefit from Benzema's absence since Giroud will have the chance to take over as the team's offensive leader once more.
