Karamoko Dembele

Celtic’s 13-year-old forward Karamoko Dembele made his debut for England Under-15s on Saturday.

Dembele – who made headlines in October when he played for Celtic’s development team – came off the bench as England beat Turkey 5-2 at St George’s Park.

He recently appeared for Scotland’s Under-16 side in the Victory Shield.

He is also eligible to play for Ivory Coast and will not be tied to a national team until he makes a competitive senior appearance.

After Saturday’s game, Dembele posted a message on Instagram that read: “Good experience at England, glad to have won 5-2 against Turkey and have assisted one, played well.”
