Video: Moussa Dembele Scores Hat-Trick For France U21s in Just 11 Minutes

Celtic striker Moussa Dembele cemented his reputation as one of European football’s most sought-after players tonight when he banged in a sensational hat-trick for France’s Under-21 side.

The 21-year-old has been on the brink of a call-up to the France senior squad recently and was included in the provisional squad for the friendlies against Wales and Germany.

But the Hoops forward was eventually dropped back down to the Under-21s – and their manager is probably very thankful he was.

He was handed a starting berth for tonight’s European Championships qualifier away to Slovenia, and it looked like Les Bleus might be in trouble when they fell behind on 21 minutes.

But Dembele hit back by scoring in the 34th, 41st and 45th minute to give his side an astonishing half-time lead.

His first was a penalty and the third goal was definitely the pick of the bunch:

Will performances like this make it harder for Celtic to keep hold of Dembele in January?
