Since the announcement of his potential return to the France team, for Euro 2020 where he should be summoned by Didier Deschamps, many messages on social networks have referred to the player’s biography on Twitter, which would have been changed. In fact: the Real Madrid striker has never removed this mention linked to the France team.
According to information from the Parisian, Didier Deschamps should announce, this Tuesday evening, the presence of Karim Benzema in the list of 26 players summoned for Euro 2020. A huge sensation, after more than 5 years of sidelining, which quickly provoked many reactions on social networks.
Several Internet users quickly went to the profile of Karim Benzema, on the lookout for the slightest information. And the presence in his profile of a mention “Football player – @equipedefrance @realmadrid”, that is to say the official accounts of the Blues and his current club, was seen as an indication of his imminent return.
A mention never removed
But as shown by the Internet Archive Wayback archiving site (https://archive.org/web/), which allows you to consult Internet pages at several different times, this mention linked to the French team has never been removed from the biography of Karim Benzema’s Twitter account. Many captures exist with this reference to the France team, dating both from the beginning of May, November 2020 and even April 15, 2016, two days after the announcement that he would not compete in the Euro 2016.
Clearly, Karim Benzema’s Twitter biography has not changed for several years. It is therefore difficult to see a potential clue for his possible return with the France team for Euro 2020. Selectable since February 2016, after a time when he was dismissed due to his indictment in the so-called case of the sextape of Mathieu Valbuena, the former OL player has never been summoned since. His last match with the Blues was in October 2015, against Armenia, for an 81st and last selection.
