Karim Benzema has been ruled out of the World Cup after suffering an injury to his left thigh during training.

Benzema felt a strong pain in his thigh during a sprint toward the end of the training session.

After undergoing an MRI, it was confirmed that Benzema had suffered a muscle tear that would need three weeks of recovery time.

France's other forward options in their squad include 2018 star Kylian Mbappe as well Antoine Griezmann, Olivier Giroud, Marcus Thuram and Ousmane Dembele.
