Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema doesn’t look too bothered about missing out on the World Cup as he enjoys his summer living it up by the pool.
The Frenchman has been out in the cold at international level for some time now for reasons we’d best not dwell upon here, but there doesn’t seem too much reason to feel sorry for him.
People may say that playing in a World Cup is the absolute pinnacle of any footballer’s career, but to be honest, when you’re a multi-millionaire like Benzema who’s pretty much won the lot at club level anyway, why not relish getting a summer off in five-star hotels and taking the rare opportunity to put your feet up?

Benzema is one of the finest strikers of his generation and there’s no doubt it’s a loss for fans not to see a player of his calibre at the tournament as we all want to see the best doing their thing at the highest level.
But that isn’t Benzema’s problem, and looking at the pic in his tweet above, we’d all swap places with him right now wouldn’t we?
Plus, France needn’t worry too much either with talent like Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe in their attack meaning it’s little surprise most World Cup betting tips have Les Bleus as among the favourites for the tournament.
And if they do win, Benzema can enjoy victory from the comfort of his lounger by the pool!
