Benzema had been on a goalscoring drought of 12 games for his national team before his brace in their 4-0 win against Armenia on Thursday.

The striker has often been accused of underperforming for France, but does not understand why people think he’s not happy to represent his country.  

"I do not know if there is a debate," he told Sport24.

"I'm happy to join up with the team. I have heard some people say I was not happy and that I do not want to join the France team, but that is wrong!

"I'm happy when I'm with the Blues. I want to win titles with this team. I do not know why there are so many questions about me.

"Maybe some people have problems, worries or maybe they like me too much, I do not know."
