Karim Benzema scored a stunning goal in the UEFA Nations League game against Denmark to give France the lead on Friday, June 3. According to fans, the brilliant goal have boosted his Ballon d’Or odds.
They were in awe of the goal scored in the 51st minute of the game in which the in-form RB Leipzig star Christopher Nkunku was also involved. Benzema collected a pass just outside the box on the right flank and exchanged a silky quick one-two with Nkunku.
He timed his run perfectly to collect Nkunku’s cheeky backheel pass and dribbled past three Danish defenders before rolling the ball into the back of the net.
He was splendid for Real Madrid in the 2021-22 season and continues his rich vein of form with the France national team. With him adding another top-quality goal to his tally tonight, some fans on Twitter have already picked him as their Ballon d’Or favorite.
Fans were quick to express their admiration for the goal and here’s a collection of some of the best tweets from the fans:
Stop the game right now and give the Ballon d’Or to Benzema. That was NAUGHTYYYYYY.

Benzema is a better footballer than messi.
Don’t get me wrong. Messi has obviously had a better career and is one of the greatest of all times, but in terms of individual quality, Benzema is better football player.
