Celtic prodigy Karamoko Dembele continued to enhance his reputation as one of British football’s most promising young players over the last week or so after playing a crucial role in Scotland’s Under-17 win over Russia in Spain.
The Hoops youngster is now 15 but has been attracting attention ever since being named in his club’s development team at the age of 13 – alongside 19 and 20-year-olds.
Since then, there has been plenty of talk about his club future, but his international status has been even more interesting.
Dembele was born in London to parents from Ivory Coast, but moved to Glasgow at the age of one – so technically he could play for either England, Ivory Coast and Scotland at international level.
The talented winger has been regularly involved with the English youth setup over the last year, and even captained the England Under-15 side in a match against Holland last year.
But Dembele seemed pretty happy playing his part in Scotland’s notable win over the Russians, and even had a hand in one of the goals:
Dembele turns 16 in February of next year, so could he soon be considered for a starting berth at both Celtic and the Scotland senior sides?
How far do you think he could go in the game?
