Zapping World Eleven Cristiano Ronaldo: Record numbers
On Wednesday evening, Real Madrid won against Rayo Vallecano (2-1) thanks in particular to Rodrygo’s goal in the final minutes. But earlier, it was Karim Benzema who opened the scoring at the Bernabeu. While the Madrid striker and captain nevertheless complained of an injury which made him limp down, including at the time of his celebration.
Five stitches in the locker room
The fear of an injury gradually disappeared as Benzema was finally able to play the rest of the match. But this does not mean that the Madrid number 9 did not suffer… Indeed, his historical agent Karim Djaziri revealed the deep foot injury suffered by the Nueve, who therefore played the whole meeting with a hell of a gash on the foot, forcing it to be stitched up in the locker room just after the match. Sacred demonstration of courage…
Yesterday @Benzema after 10 minutes an opponent steps on his foot, but as usual he says nothing plays the whole match in pain even manages to score! At the end the doc gave him 5 stitches in the locker room 😅. #ADiscreetHero pic.twitter.com/BzF8eT1Lwu
