Real Madrid superstar Karim Benzema has backed France to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar this year.

Speaking to French football outlet Telefoot, Benzema was asked about France’s chances at the World Cup. The striker believes that Les Blues are favourites to lift the trophy. He said:

“You have to put France as the favourites, that’s obligatory. Because of our quality on the pitch, what we’re showing in our clubs and in the national team, we’re showing that we can be the best. Every match is difficult. You can’t win on paper. What you show on the pitch is what speaks for itself. But I have absolute faith in this squad. I’ve changed [since being at Lyon]. I have kids, a family – I’m a man now.”
