29-year-old Benzema has scored 183 goals for Real Madrid in 377 games, and his near-one goal in two record is something many players can only dream of.
"It's complicated for me to be at the World Cup, don't be silly, of course I want to, I'm a football lover, and I like that pressure", he said.
Benzema concedes that his exile from the Les Blues setup is likely to continue for the foreseeable future but, with a World Cup year fast approaching, the former Lyon star has called on Deschamps to only focus on matters that take place on the field.

The comments actually came from Jose Mourinho, who managed Benzema from 2010 to 2013. "I don't need to see what he does with France, only what he does in the Champions League".
"If I don't touch the ball, but I score in the 90th minute, I'm disgusted".
