Benzema scored the goal after receiving a ball from outside the penalty area, to prepare it for himself and shoot it from inside the area in a distinctive way, which the Spain goalkeeper was unable to address.
What increased the importance of Benzema's goal was that it came less than 3 minutes after the goal of the Spanish team, as he returned the result in favor of France and the "roosters" managed to turn the score, ending the match with a 2-1 victory.
After leading the French national team to the European title, Benzema, 33, became one of the most prominent candidates for the Golden Ball this year, for which he was already nominated in a list of 30 candidates, after he presented an exceptional level in terms of scoring and creating goals with Real Madrid and his country, and this will qualify him to be contender for the award.
Benzema scored 30 goals in 46 games with "Royal Club" last season, in addition to his decisive goals with France.
