Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema, has threatened to switch his international team after once again being overlooked for the France squad. Benzema, who hasn’t played for his country for almost 5 years, wants to play internationally, but French coach Didier Deschamps won’t let him. The forward had been cast out of the team after he was charged with conspiracy to blackmail French teammate Valbuena over a sex tape which ended up being false news. Benzema is half Algerian and French so in order to be eligible to play for the French Squad he needs to fill a lot of paperwork and needs the French Team to wave him. Karim Benzema holds the 9th position for most goals scored for the France National Football team.
