Karim Benzema Scores Insane Finesse Finish Against Club America, Alternative Angle Shows How Good It Was.
Karim Benzema scored his signature worldie against Club America, demonstrating once more that he has perfected the finesse shot.
The San Francisco Giants baseball team’s home field, Oracle Park, saw a 2-2 draw between the European winners and the Mexican team.
Henry Martin gave Club America, who recently defeated both Chelsea and Manchester City, a 1-0 lead.
However, Los Blancos came back in spectacular fashion in the 22nd minute through their captain and talisman.
On the edge of the box, Benzema and Marco Asensio executed a great one-two, and when the ball came back to him, he unleashed the most exquisite curling shot into the bottom corner.
Given how frequently Benzema has scored goals of this nature, it was truly vintage Benzema. However, you must view the endeavor from the alternate aspect in order to completely appreciate its beauty.

He expertly manipulates the defender to bend the ball around. The ball has an unbelievable amount of spin, and until it twisted in past Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, it appeared to be headed wide.
After rinsing two people to create the chance for himself, Benzema went near with another strike shortly after in the first half of his first game back for Real.
Early in the second half, Alvaro Fidalgo tied the score with a spot-kick of his own before Eden Hazard made it 2-1 for Real with a clinical penalty.
Last season, Benzema scored 44 goals across all competitions as Real won the La Liga and Champions League double. It was the finest goalscoring season of his career.
Having scored 15 goals in 12 games, including hat-tricks against Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea in the knockout stages, the 34-year-old was crucial to Real’s 14th European Cup victory.
His teammate Hazard thinks he should finally receive the attention he deserves because he is a front-runner for this year’s Ballon d’Or prize.
He stated to ESPN: “I believe he deserves it. There’s no denying it, you know.
“But I think he deserves it for his entire career, not just for one season, you know? It appears as though he has been in charge for 15 years.
