Benzema injury LATEST, Van de Beek out for Holland, Ben White called up to England Euro 2020 squad


KARIM BENZEMA has handed world champs France a scare by limping off injured in their 3-0 Euro 2020 warm-up win over Bulgaria.

The striker appeared to be hurt following a challenge with Bulgarian defender Ivan Turitsov during the first half.

The veteran tried to play on but soon went down and signalled he could not continue as he hobbled off favouring his right knee in the 37th minute at the Stade de France.

Meanwhile Man Utd’s Donny van de Beek has been ruled out of the entire tournament for Holland.

The Dutch are already without injured captain Virgil van Dijk and goalkeeper Jesper Cillessen, who tested positive for Covid.

And on the home front, Gareth Southgate has confirmed Ben White will replace the injured Trent Alexander-Arnold in his 26-man England squad.
