What keeps Karim focused and inspired?

One of the most prolific strikers, Karim, has three La Liga titles, two Copas del Rey, and four European champions league titles under his belt. 

Despite his brilliancy, he lacks support from his birth country due to his number of scandals and his reluctance to sing the French national anthem before every match with the national team. 

The comments he made in 2006 saying that he would be rather playing with the Algerian national team but chose France which dragged him to getting lots of criticisms. 

After all these, he is playing with dignity. According to Karim, his family and his Islamic faith keep him inspired and focused every day. 

Grew up in a large family with eight siblings

Nafissa grew up in a large family with her eight siblings, four brothers, and four sisters.  They grew up together in Bron, an eastern suburb of Lyon

Two of her brothers, Gressy Benzema and Sabri Benzema, are also footballers. Gressy plays in the French sixth division with Vaulx-en-Velin, while Sabri plays for the youth academy in Bron

Her other brother, Farid Benzema, has chosen his career outside football. Her sisters, Lydia, Laeticia, Sofia, and Celia, remain out of the spotlight.

Grew up in an unhealthy environment

Nafissa's father Hafid Benzema, and mother Wahida Djebbara, managed to raise their big family in an unhealthy environment. 

The environment they lived in was full of crime, and most people possessed bad and unhealthy habits. Despite that, they taught their children to be disciplined and also taught them religious values.

Karim is grateful to his father for enlightening him with moral values and education. He credits his father for what he is today.
