Benzema determined to replicate Real Madrid form in Euros
France is on the verge of qualifying for a European Championship quarterfinal, but Benzema has failed to shine.
Although Benzema played his part in the 2-0 win against Ukraine, setting up Yohan Cabaye's goal with an exquisite turn and pass, more was expected of the Real Madrid striker heading into the tournament.
The 24-year-old Benzema's total of 15 goals in 47 international appearances is lower than it should be, given his ability.
He has three goals in the past 14 games for France and never scored at a tournament, after being left out of the 2010 World Cup and playing twice at Euro 2008.
