Is this Neymar or Karamoko Dembele? As pointed out by his big brother Siriki, there were comparisons between the two as the latter appeared for England’s youth team last night.
The Celtic youngster is on duty with the England Under 16 team for their games against Norway, France and Brazil this week.

He turns 16 on Friday and that would now make him eligible to play for Celtic’s first team.
So supporters should get even more excited after seeing him dazzle on the ball during last night’s game against France.
His brother Siriki – who plays for Peterborough – was on hand to catch the skill from the sidelines:
Dembele has had considerable hype since appearing for Celtic’s Under 20 team as a 13-year-old talent.
And he’s trained with Brendan Rodgers’ first team since, leading to more speculation that he could be given an early debut by the Hoops manager once he’s of age.
