Karim Benzema has defended his own goal drought for France following another poor display in their 0-0 draw with minnows Georgia in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Friday night.
The Real Madrid striker drew criticism from FFF president Noel Le Graet after going 15 games without scoring for Les Bleus.
The last time Benzema scored for France was against Estonia in June last year, and Le Graet was not impressed, saying, "There is a problem. He is very disappointing. A starter at Real Madrid can’t be as bad as people say. We expect more."
Benzema was quick to defend himself, saying, "I know when I am good or not. Tonight I was not terrible. For me to do better in the next game, I will not dwell on my substitution.
"It’s complicated - we don’t win, we don’t score goals and we don’t do good things. It’s a difficult period. I wouldn’t say we doubt ourselves, but it’s becoming a long time since we scored a goal."
Benzema was replaced by Andre-Pierre Gignac in the 62nd minute of the game but France were still unable to break the deadlock in the final few minutes.
