Fans in collective Karim Benzema demand after latest solo stunner in France's meeting with Denmark


Football fans the world over have flooded to social media on Friday evening, to send a collective plea to the powers that be in the game, regarding Karim Benzema.

Hitman Benzema, of course, marked his return to the international stage a short time ago.

Fresh off rounding out a stunning individual campaign with glory in the Champions League, the veteran hitman led the line for France in the country's Nations League opener versus Denmark.

But that man Benzema nevertheless impressed once more, bagging France's only goal on the night courtesy of a brilliant solo effort.

And Benzema's latest endeavours, despite coming en route to a disappointing result for France, have not gone at all unappreciated amongst fans.

Taking to social media in their droves on Friday night, viewers have demanded that the 34-year-old be awarded football's most prestigious individual prize - the Ballon d'Or - for 2022.
