In an interview with journalists after the game, the Frenchman revealed part of the content of the conversation with his former attack partner.
The 2-2 draw between Portugal and France had two protagonists: Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema. Authors of the goals of their teams in the match that closed the ‘group of death’ of this Eurocup , the former teammates of Real Madrid fraternized after the final whistle of the duel at the Puskás Arena, in Hungary.
In a post-match interview with journalists, the Frenchman revealed part of the content of the conversation with his former attack partner.
“Ronaldo is a great friend, we had a great partnership at Real, many goals together. It was a pleasure to see you again. We talked, we wish each other luck for the future in the national team and in the clubs,” revealed the Frenchman.
Untouchable in the attack of the Real Madrid, Benzema has a different situation than Cristiano Ronaldo for the next season. Faced with economic problems, Juventus considers the continuity of the Portuguese, who still has a one-year contract in Turin.
Oblivious to rumors about which jersey he will defend in the future, the forward remains focused on securing his second title with Portugal on the Eurocup.
The team of CR7 will have a great rival in the round of 16: Belgium, next Sunday (27), at the La Cartuja Stadium in Seville, in Spain.
France, who advanced to the knockout stage at the top of the group, will face Swiss on Monday (28), in Bucharest, Romania.
