The Real Madrid attacker was over the moon with his team's display against the reigning European champions and has urged his team-mates to keep on working hard
The home side looked impressive in front of a raucous crowd at the Stade de France, with Loic Remy's second-half strike enough to get them over the line.
Benzema, who had a goal disallowed for offside in the 49th minute, was full of praise for his side's performance.
"It's good, it's always nice to win against big teams, especially to do it with style, and we did it tonight," he told reporters.
"We went head to head with one of the best teams of the world, so it's good for the French team and for our confidence.
"After the World Cup, we needed to start working again and play a big game. We work together, we're a really good team and we just need to keep working."
Benzema then went on to discuss his disallowed goal, but he was not too perturbed about it, despite replays showing that it was a harsh decision.
"I have not seen the images yet and don't know whether I was offside or not. Still, the bottom line is that we won. I had a lot of fun tonight."
Didier Deschamps' men will now turn their attention to a friendly against Serbia on Sunday.
