CELTIC prodigy Karamoko Dembele has put another feather in his cap at just the age of 16 by captaining his international side to victory against Ivory Coast.
The Celtic starlet pulled on the captain’s armband for the Three Lions under 16 side as they battered their opposition 5-0.
Congratulations to Karamoko Dembele on captaining England U16s and scoring in their 5.0 victory over Ivory Coast this evening.

Even though he played for England, the young Celtic star has also pulled on the jersey for Scotland at youth level with the player yet to officially commit to what country he’ll be turning out for.
However, it looks increasingly likely that Karamoko is swaying towards playing with the Englan setup.
After turning 16 in February the youngster was put straight into the reserve squad where he has been lighting up the developmental league.
Dembele tasted his first major disappointment for the reserves – playing in the 2-0 defeat to The Rangers earlier in the week before heading off on international duty.
Celtic fans have been following the wee man’s progress, and he can’t be too far away from being in and around the first team squad. He has already trained with the big team in recent months after all!
