Benzema: I do other things

France striker Karim Benzema says he does other things besides scoring goals after coming under fire for not finding the net since June last year.

The Real Madrid hitman has 15 goals in 55 appearances for Les Bleus, who take on Georgia and Spain in 2014 World Cup qualifiers this week.

Benzema failed to score at Euro 2012 and admitted Didier Deschamps' team need to be more creative going forward.

"People say I don't score - but I create space, I set things up with passes. But all that is not important," Benzema told Radio Monte Carlo.

"I have provided some assists but have the impression that counts for nothing. We now face two very important matches and I feel great. I am going to have a great match with the French team and we'll talk again after the games.

"We have a good team but we don't score enough. We win and that's good but it would be better if we scored more. Maybe we have to take more risks.

"I try out there but I can't do it all on my own. I can't get the ball and dribble past eight defenders. People talk about the amount of goals I have scored as it is a while since I scored for Les Bleus."
