Karim Benzema praises France boss Deschamps in Adidas ‘all in or nothing’ advert
Karim Benzema has looked as sharp as a tack during this World Cup.
The France striker has three goals to his name at this World Cup; he should have four. He scored a blistering volley against Switzerland just as the final whistle blew.
Benzema is a striker transformed. Whereas previously he faltered for France now he is thriving. One reason for that is Didier Deschamps, the France coach, a former World Cup winner, gives Benzema the belief to succeed.
Germany may find out how confident Benzema is tonight.
