Former France coach Raymond Domenech believes that Karim Benzema's showing in the national team's 3-1 win over Georgia on Friday proves that the player is "useless".
The Real Madrid striker has failed to find the back of the net for France in 929 minutes of football and was jeered by Bleus fans after refusing to sing the Marseillaise before the game.
Domenech also had stern words for Franck Ribery, who he believes is too inconsistent, while he heaped praise on Blaise Matuidi and Mathieu Valbuena.
"I had already said it: Benzema confirms his uselessness and Ribery is still inconsistent. But that was before!" he wrote on Twitter.
"Valbuena and Matuidi are certain to face Spain. Ribery will also play Spain."
Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud was of a different opinion though, saying that he is hoping to form a strong partnership with Benzema.
"He created chances. I was trying to set him up too. I was trying to find it. It's a partnership that could work and we achieved a lot tonight. There are no problems," he said.
