After being sidelined by the French team, Karim Benzema continues to score goals and has been sending the French competition back to his studies since 2010. IT’S KB9.
In a few days, a decade will end and this is obviously an opportunity to take stock in football as elsewhere. And Opta Jean examined the list of the best French goalscorers during the period 2010-2019 in the five largest championships on our continent. There is no photo for the most prolific tricolor striker of the decade, as Karim Benzema scored 155 goals for Real Madrid alone. The former Lyon player is 14 goals ahead of Antoine Griezmann (141) and Alexandre Lacazatte (132). Then there’s Kevin Gameiro (118) and Wissam Ben Yedder (114).
Benzema is above Griezmann
Of course, this ranking will revive the already eternal debate about Karim Benzema’s absence from the French team for four years, because if KB9 has won it all with Real Madrid, he lacks the World Cup that Antoine Griezmann won him. But no one can rewrite history and Real Madrid’s French striker now knows that it is with Merengue that he will write his legend and his name in the history of hexagonal football. Moreover, anti-Benzema and pro-Karim will continue to oppose the decision made by Didier Deschamps and Noel Le Graet.
