Karim Benzema scored twice against Switzerland (3-3, 5 tab 4), in the last 16 of Euro 2020, on Monday 28 June. He was unable to do anything when the Swiss came back into the game and then beat France on penalties. On his Instagram account, the Real Madrid player posted a hopeful message.
He said: "Sad and disappointed with the outcome of yesterday's game. The disappointment is immense, I would have loved to continue to thrill you for a long time. Thank you for your unfailing support since the beginning of this Euro. Thank you for the strength you have given me every day. Nothing is ever easy, we continue to fight to prepare the future and come back even stronger.''
