The crisis between Karim Benzema and the French Football Federation reached its peak, the two sides exchanged fiery statements on Saturday evening, where the Real Madrid star confirmed that he is the only one who decides his fate to participate internationally.

Benzema said via his official Twitter account: "Noel (president of the French Federation), I thought you are not interfering with the decisions of the coach but you have to know that I am the only one who can set the end of my international career, if you think I am finished let me play in one of the countries for which I am qualified to play We'll see."

Born in the State of Lights from an Algerian family, Benzema represented the French national team at various age levels, with which he played 81 games, before being completely out of Didier Deschamps's calculations over the past few years.

Can Benzema represent Algeria's national team in the future?

According to French magazine France Football, Karim Benzema cannot wear another national team shirt, as FIFA regulations place Benzema's desire for international self-determination as impossible.

According to the magazine, FIFA regulations state: "Any player who has participated with a football federation (in whole or in part) in an official match cannot join the formation of another team, except in exceptional cases."

Since Benzema has Algerian origins, the magazine interpreted the French international's remarks as wanting to wear the Desert Warriors shirt, and the aforementioned source reviewed the only exception to the Real Madrid striker's future representation.

The French magazine said: "The only exception in accordance with FIFA regulations is that the player loses his nationality from the country to which he or she played without his consent or against his will because of a government decision, at which time he may claim his right to play in the name of another football federation of a country that can hold its nationality."
