Several hours have passed since the elimination of France from the Eurocup was consummated, after losing on penalties to Switzerland in the round of 16. The penalty is still installed in the members of ‘Les Bleus’, as evidenced by Karim Benzema, who lamented the farewell to the competition with a message on social networks. “Sad and disappointed with the result of yesterday's game.

The disappointment is immense, I would have liked to continue to excite them for a long time. Thank you for your unwavering support since the start of this European Championship. Thank you for the strength you have given me on a daily basis, ”the forward wrote on Instagram.

Likewise, Benzema, who said goodbye to the Eurocup having scored four goals, promised to keep working to come back stronger, thinking about the following challenges: "Nothing is easy, we keep fighting to prepare for the future and come back even stronger."

France, after finishing the leader in their group, which was also made up of Portugal, Germany and Hungary, lost last Monday night at the Arena Nationala in Bucharest. The result in regulation time was 3-3, extra time came, there were no goals and everything was defined on penalties.

In the shootout, Mbappé missed the fifth shot, after everyone had converted. Now, Benzema and company will rest for a few days before joining their respective teams to start the preseason. The return to competition for France is scheduled for September, with three matches for the Qatar 2022 Qualifiers.
