Soccer Football - UEFA Nations League - Group A - France v Croatia - Stade de France, Saint-Denis, France - June 13, 2022 Croatia's Josip Juranovic in action with France's Christopher Nkunku REUTERS/Gonzalo Fuentes

JOSIP JURANOVIC is on a massive high on Monday evening after helping his side to a famous victory against France in Paris.

The Celtic defender played at left back for the night and helped keep the likes of Mbappe, Benzema and Griezmann quiet on the night.

Luka Modric, fresh off his latest Champions League win scored an early penalty against the Didier Deschamps men and they didn’t look back.

This is a first for Croatia who has never beaten France until tonight. After earning a draw against them in Croatia, they have gone one better away from home.

Josip earned a 7.8 out of 10 from Fot Mob. The Celtic star played the entire game, the Croatian had 66 touches, a passing accuracy of 87% and won 100% of his tackles. He also made 4 recoveries, 2 interceptions and 2 headed clearances on the night.

Juranovic is just months away from lining up for Celtic in the Champions League where he will come up against some of the best players in the world. This will give the player immense confidence he can mix it with the best of them.

Celtic are due back at Lennoxtown at the end of June, but we understand those who have been taking part in international duty will be return later than the others.

  1. Aye he’s a class player, one of many Ange has brought to the club, and what a bargain!

    Hoping the club can resist offers for our players for at least the next few years and instead help Ange build his team, as he clearly has vision worth investing time in.
