Benzema not worried by critics

Karim Benzema has brushed off the booing he was subjected to after France's World Cup qualifying defeat to Spain.

Real Madrid forward Benzema was booed off as he left the field as his run without scoring for the national team extended to over 1,000 minutes.

“The whistles? These things happen in football, nothing more,” reflected Benzema.

“I think that overall we played a good game, we were able to put a team as great as Spain under pressure, especially during the first half.”
