Striker Karim Benzema has been charged in connection with an extortion attempt targeting France teammate Mathieu Valbuena over a sex tape. Both players have been excluded from two internationals this month.
A French court has rejected Karim Benzema's request to halt his trial for alleged blackmail. The Real Madrid striker is accused of targeting fellow French international Mathieu Valbuena using a sex video.
Karim Benzema will be allowed to play in the summer tournament after his legal restrictions were lifted on Friday. He will be allowed to play with French teammate, Mathieu Valbuena, the other party in the blackmail case.
