By posting a photo of the flight to Qatar, Karim Benzema put Marcus Thuram in an uncomfortable position.
The Blues flew to Qatar on Tuesday. While he was not one of the 25 names listed by Didier Deschamps when the list was announced, Marcus Thuram was good for the trip. The tricolor coach had indeed decided, the day before, to make it his 26e man. Enough to fill the Mönchengladbach striker.
And after a “check” with Kylian Mbappé, a particularly accomplice on his arrival at Clairefontaine, the native of Parma was alongside Karim Benzema on the plane to Doha. The opportunity for the Madrilenian to discuss his first major competition, Euro 2008, performed alongside… Lilian Thuram, the father of the French striker.
Very active on social networks, Karim Benzema did not fail to immortalize the moment with a snapshot where he appears alongside Marcus Thuram and also with Raphaël Varane, installed further down the row. A photo taken by the second top scorer in the Bundeseliga. The latter added an airplane emoji. An addition that owes nothing to chance. He allowed him to hide the small box he held in his hand: Snus, that is to say sucking tobacco, very popular in the Nordic countries in Switzerland or Algeria but prohibited for sale in France .
