Marco Tilio, after his cameo for Australia’s under-23s against Qatar, has continued his path back to match fitness by starting for Australia youngsters in a match against Saudi Arabia on Tuesday evening.
The 22-year-old winger, whose playing time at Celtic has been non-existent thus far, played a significant role in helping his team secure a 3-1 victory. Coming through the game unscathed, this appearance marks an important milestone in his recovery and quest for more regular first-team action.
Tilio’s performance in these international fixtures showcases his potential and readiness for more competitive play. An exciting prospect for Celtic supporters who want to see how Marco performs.
As he returns to Glasgow, his recent international success may bolster his case for inclusion in Celtic’s first team, especially given the current injuries within the squad.
This development could influence the decision regarding his potential loan move in January, as Tilio demonstrates his capability and match fitness on the international stage.
The bhoys takes on Motherwell this weekend at Celtic Park, but it’s doubtful Marco will make the squad.
It will be interesting to see who Brendan Rodgers goes with for the Steelmen’s visit. Palma is suspended for the midweek trip to Rome next week, will he put someone else in to give them the chance to get match sharp before the Champions League tie. We know that man won’t be Tilio as he’s not registered for the competition.
