New Celtic signing Jonathan Afolabi has made his Ireland under 21 debut just weeks after securing a deal with the Scottish Champions. Afolabi is one of three new Irish signings who came to Celtic over the summer; Luca Connell and Lee O’Connor also moving from down south.
Afolabi is highly rated and Southampton tried to get the player to stay beyond the summer but Jonathan thought Celtic would be the best move for his career.
The young talent Neil Lennon brought in are likely to continue in the developmental league but Afolabi seems like a player who could be on the cusp of the first team if he plays his cards right.
The Celtic youngster came on for his country in the 82nd minute against Armenia and celebrated with fellow Celt Luca Connell after the game on social media.
The international break is in full swing now with the bhoys not due back until later next week.
