France striker Karim Benzema limped out of Tuesday’s friendly against Bulgaria in a worrying sight for Les Bleus.
The Real Madrid star has been recalled to the national team after a six-year absence and is poised to play a starring role for his country at Euro 2020.
But that could now be in doubt after the 33-year-old picked up a knock in the first half against Bulgaria.
Benzema appeared to be injured in a challenge with Bulgaria defender Ivan Turitsov during the first half at Stade de France.
The Real Madrid striker attempted to continue on following the clash but he went down in the 37th minute and signalled to the sideline that he would require a sub.
Benzema appeared to be favouring his right knee as he went down to the pitch in Paris.
Olivier Giroud was introduced into the match in the 41st minute, replacing Benzema.
“It’s a knock,” Didier Deschamps told M6 at halftime. “He took a good hit on the muscle above the left knee, and he felt that it was hardening so we took no risk. The medical staff is currently with him.”
