Outcast Benzema delights in France win

Karim Benzema was not part of the France squad in Russia, but he posted a celebratory message after Sunday's World Cup final.

Outcast forward Karim Benzema congratulated France on their thrilling World Cup final triumph on Sunday.

Les Bleus won their second title in Moscow as Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe starred and scored in a 4-2 win over Croatia.

However, France were without Benzema, who has not played for his country since 2015, having been investigated in relation to an alleged attempt to blackmail his international team-mate Mathieu Valbuena.

But the Real Madrid star was still among those to revel in France's victory.

He took to Instagram shortly after full-time to post a message: "Congratulations, guys! Well done. World champs."

 

Felicitation les gars!!! Well done. World champs
